Thread: Scottish Nova - time for a rebuild!

  1. #561
    I did my alternator conversion a few weeks ago with parts from machine 7.

    I was also worried I'd have to swap the fuel pump. There is also some clearance issue with certain carbs, requiring a carb spacer.
    Mine is a 1300 single port with 31pict2.

    It bolted on, didn't have to change anything (except the fan-shroud plate).

    Cheers Chris, that's encouraging.

    Mine's a 1776 dual port with a big single Holley carb. I've got a new fan shroud plate, but will wait until I have a closer look at the engine with the dynamo off to check the clearance for the fuel pump before placing an order.

    Had a good afternoon stripping the engine today.









    I've been getting lots of bits and pieces for it lately, and the main things I intend to do are:-

    • New clutch kit, including flywheel and throwout bearing
    • Replace dynamo with new alternator (and smaller fuel pump)
    • New combined fuel filter/regulator
    • New exhaust
    • New exhaust heat exchangers
    • New crankshaft pulley (& matching alternator pulley)
    • New fuel intake manifold (might be difficult? ... it's for a Holley 2100 single carb)
    • New radiator and pipework for external oil cooler
    • New stainless steel pushrod tubes

    I also intend to remove the heads to check them. Other than that, the engine tinwork will be stripped and repainted, and the whole lot will be finished off with other wee bits and pieces from a blue EMPI dress up kit.

    Lockdown has some benefits!
