    Mid-50's MV 175 with mechanical fuel injection. Never produced , just illustrates what the Italians were experimenting with.

    Pretty sure I get what the other gears are there for... but what's the top one needed for? Gears.jpg

    Compared to that the timing chest of a roundcase looks downright sparce!

    I don't know for sure , but , we can see primary gears , oil pump gears , cam driving gears . So that leaves the water pump and ignition. So maybe one or both ?
