Grinder where did you get this pic from: is this a 353 sleeve.

I took the picture. Yes it is comparing the +12-3SCT sleeve to the 353. 353 is on the right.

yes,
and the cranckshaft is also the same,
but frontbearing and crankcase is another.

they have take the cheaper cranckshaft from the plus 12-3 sct to get more money. i think the aadversed cranckshaft is more expensive to built.

i have write to the german novarossi distrubiutor, to chance the engine in the right one.

So the only thing different they did different was add the hole's to a sct sleeve do you see any other difference in the sleeve timming,
what other differences do you see in the engine compared to the sct

WoW! The all of the plus series info has been erased from there web site. Maybe they are trying to pull the bate and switch and erase the evidence before they face legal repercussions.
