Hi all,
another member suggested to re-post here a request of help I posted on the technical forum:

I am doing researches about the engines used on the Honda F1 cars during the 1964 and 1965 seasons and asking for some help.
Being more specific I would like to know something more about their oil and water systems and fuel metering unit, does anyone know anything about it?
I know aRA271E engine is on display at the London Design Museum so if someone ever managed to take some picture to it could please share? It would be very interesting to see an image about its front side, to see what was fixed on the sump (Oil filter? Starter motor?).
Many thanks in advance to you all.
Best,
Gab

Oil system? Like the Coke tin catch tank at the Nurburgring in 64. :p

There is a description of the RA272E in Karl Ludvigsen's Classic Racing Engines.
