Is there anything which doesn’t come with the turnkey engine?

There’s no clutch cable, heater cable levers, or engine back bar included, and these will need to be purchased separately. We advise that you call us on 01256 86 22 88 before you order, to check you’re ordering the correct engine unit and how quickly we’ll be able to get it to you, so the JK Team will be able to help you get any of these other parts if you need them. 

What is a ‘turnkey engine’?
