KG7 on ebay. What are those round holes above the exhaust ports. I don't  remember them there, those ports look awful big.

Yea, ported big time...  You'd need to spin the heck out of it for that to help you make more power.

The holes in the water jackets would let all the water out of the jackets so it is likely that this was a modified motor that was used stacks with a water cooled filler block or water was being sprayed onto an aluminum exhaust and that's where the water was going.  Not sure how they sealed it, or if they did, but that is most likely what is going on there...

Obviously a mod powerhead.
