It’s not often you get to see the process involved in the production of a cast aluminium engine casing, but Uni-Auto of India have kindly shared this video showing the process.
Uni-Auto have recently begun production of new 200cc Lambretta engine casings featuring many updated features, as seen in the latest edition 11 of ScooterNova magazine.
The video below shows the cleaning of the tooling from the previous casting, pouring in of molten metal and the pressure casting process, before the ‘finished’ casing is extracted.
Pretty interesting to watch we think, and hope you do too. Hopefully they will make further videos showing the machining involved at the next stage of production.

We received the following statement from AF Rayspeed earlier today:
“Today we have received an update from the supplier regarding the new gear selectors for the Clo5e Ratio Gearbox.
“The new selectors are on the way to us, they left the supplier yesterday (Monday) with Fedex, we are hoping for a quick delivery.
“Many of you have already returned your gear selectors, these will be replaced as soon as the new ones arrive.
“Please, if you have not returned your gear selector send it to us and as soon as we receive it we can send out the replacement, please mark the package for the attention of Karen.
“We appreciate the patience that has been shown in relation to this issue, thank you.”
So, if like Andy you have a Clo5e Ratio gearbox loaded into an engine you’ve not yet been able to use, then good news is hopefully just around the corner.
And if you have not yet sent your original selector back to AF, then do so as soon as possible. Their address is:
AF Rayspeed Ltd., Five Acres, East Heslerton, Nr. Malton, North Yorkshire, YO17 8EN.
If you need to know more you can try telephoning 01944 710693, but you may have better luck sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fingers crossed we’ll be riding them before the end of the summer!
