the gem twincam site has the federal mogul (i think) part number listed for the cam bearings. I have a full set or maybe 2 cant remember, but i know i posted pics and part numbers on that site once upon a time


Good to see your still floating around mate.

Just to confirm, are you saying the Federal Mogul bearings toby listed ARE actually the correct bearing?

Yeah please fix your one Ash....photos and your ideas are a good reference! :lol:

Speaking of which, can you send me the photos you have uploaded in the DOHC workshop area? PhotoFuckedit wont let you right click and save either [thanks c*#nts] so i cant download and upload them to Ozgem host.

Got any left or all gone? Bellett club are impossible to deal with and arent interested in selling you anything if you own a Gemini.

Really need to get back into getting my engine together.

If you could do that for me sometime in the new year that would be good mate. I could probably track a set down off the part numbers you gave me but at this point i dont really care where they come from

Hey guys, been a VERY long time since I have been on here :lol:

Been doing a lot of body modification still & fitting new parts to the shell.
Making radiators & oil coolers for the front end, strengthening everywhere,
fitting Group 4 Kadett arches to the rear (looks f*#cking awesome!)
Time is a killer! though!

Coxy I turned back & decided not to go with the modified dummy camshaft,
I modified the original dummy camshaft on the lathe & put a 4mm radius
groove around the shaft. As time went on I thought more about it & decided
to have an external oil feed to the back of both the camshaft bearing oil
galleries. I put a 1.00mm restrictor into each gallery oil feed, to prevent
too much oil ending up in the head.

I haven't put any pics up as I haven't fixed my PhotoFuckit account or
started another one. If anyone could please let me know how to host
pics on the OzGem site that would be awesome :)

www.imgur.com i reckon is the go, I've gotta pull my finger out and do it too.

My group A car I'll have to do the dummy cam mod as i don't think i can add stuff like an external feed under the rules. 1mm restrictor is a requirement for that too.

Hey Coxy, are they? I still haven’t fixed all of the pics from Photofucket.
Strange they are all back up.
Yeah making steady progress. Got the 4 link rear end in & Watts link.

Going to dry sump the Twin Cam too, to solve all of the oil worries they have.

Has your Grp A car got the dry sump system or was that only the Grp C
car? That had the mechanical fuel injection too.
