Checking in and saying G'aday
« on: November 04, 2018, 01:50:37 PM »
Hi Guys and thanks for letting me join your company

I am an older guy who is basically retired and although I have not ridden bikes since my son was born 14 years ago. Instead to satisfy my need for a bit of driving pleasure I first turned to building a Locost clubman and more recently I have been driving a 59 Triumph Herald Coupe which I have been driving  for more than a year now, first with its original engine and then with Toyota Corolla 4K engine and 5 speed. By now I'n sure that most readers are wondering just what has brought me to this forum. Its simple really I want to use a ST1100 engine in my Herald. Others in the UK have used this engine in "7" type kit cars with good results and although my Herald is a little heavier I still expect a good result and better performance than I have had form either its original engine or the 4k with a higher redline and a sequential shift it should be a fun drive. Reverse will be made with a starter motor and a small ring gear in the prop shaft.

I had a Herald many years ago, the 1100 would certainly give it a power boost

Welcome aboard, love the thought of an 1100 in a car. I have a 63 Morris Elite that I wanted to repower, but ended up doing a rebuild on the 1600 as it thru a rod but was repairable. All done now. Good luck with the project, will be nice to see the end result. Have to come along to some RTE`s. Nigel in Mexico :wht11

Hi niceperson709.  I've seen examples of those three-wheelers with various V-engines up front.
Are you in UK or Oz?

Welcome 709. One of our members ,Yorkie, is currently restoring a  Herald.
If you haven't purchased the 1100 motor why not think about a 1500 or 1800 Goldwing motor. Or if you really want to have some fun a 12A Mazda Rotary

The GW motor won't fit the space but the ST1100 will basically its all down to the size and shape of the package  and a V4 is a more swap friendly shape

My brother is totally into Morris Minors and Morris Z's So I am familiar with the breed you have Frankly You p0robabab ly made the right choice with your car because the elite is maybe a bit heavy for a Bike engine.
Pardon my ignorance but what is a "RTE"? would I be right isn assuming its a real life meet up of some sort?

Welcome.
Could be a very nice project. Why the 1100, what about a 1300cc with the fuel injection? Could possibly solve some of your problems when getting registered (Co readings, etc).

A very good question STevo ,
 Mainly its because I don't want to have any sort of computer to deal with and then there is the issue of cost  I expect that I can get an 1100 engine for a great deal less than a 1300

Nice part of the world Ocean View. Used to live down Cab River Road and do the D'ag - Dayboro road every weekend.

@ Stinky Pete - beat me too it. I was looking for my pics of that 3 wheeler when I scrolled past your post - well done.
