Disadvantages of the EGE engine

  • The main problem with this motor is rapid slagging due to overheating. This leads to oil starvation and often results in loose bearings;
  • In second place here is a loose closing of the exhaust valves due to soot;
  • Throttle valves are also dirty here, which leads to floating speed;
  • Antifreeze leaks regularly from the heater tube and from under the pump gasket.
