The Norman shaft is about 4” too short. I need to get it cut off, and a new shaft added. Similar job to what one of the Taswegian humpy boys did not long ago on a Type 65. I have a bloke locally that I think can do it. It will need a plumber block bearing to stop the belt tension bending the supercharger. This is the price I pay the get the Norman dead-center into the Repco inlet ports.

This project is not a good idea. Lots of stuff at once - FED, weird rear main seal, too overbored, Repco, supercharging, injection, dry block. Getting it all to work together is going to be a crap fight.

But there is a bunch of guys keen to help me iron out the crap where I am ignorant.

In the meantime, I keep grinning like a Cheshire Cat 🤪

Spoke to Head Stud Development yesterday. The Repco head is nearing completion - general tidy up, sort out the multiple spring seat depths, new exhaust valves, additional shaft supports, new springs, retainers and collets, install and fettle rollie rockies. Should be done by the end of the month.

Once it's done, the head can have a small holiday in WA. Off to Galloway engines to have a receiving groove cut into the head. This will match the grooves they have cut in the EKMart engine block and allow six steel o-rings to be run for the head gasket. Should help stop the Norman blowing out the head gaskets.

After that, either bring the head home on it's own, or mate it to the short block and bring home as a long motor.

Cheers,
Harv

Harv is in the business of procuring grey motor goodies, not disposing of them ....... :ebiggrin:
