I wonder if Scottie J has a lemon tree that he pees on everyday...
Scottie, are you independently wealthy or selling your kids?
When you mention the bottom end, you are getting into the other ploblem with the Enfield twins. The rocker piston oil pump puts out an adequate supply although a gear rotor type would be more efficient. The weak point is the oil feed plug. It doesn't do all that well at high rpm but can be modified to use a nylon or delron bobbin seal to replace the old rubber bobbin seal. This helps but you have to shim the thing perfectly to eliminate oil loss around the seal. Enfield Precision Engineers changed the design with the series II Interceptor but they used the same design that AMC/Norton used and they were also prone to failure but you can't take them out and check them like you can the old style oil feed plug & bobbin seal. You have to pull the whole timing cover off. With these antiquated systems, you never really know whether your getting a good supply of oil to the bottom end or not. You just have to say a prayer and go.
I think it's coolSometimes people just want to make something that they really want, and the time and effort and expense is worth it.All high performance builds are fraught with peril. It's part of the nature of pushing things to their limits."We shall overcome!"
