Norman t300 ongoing dismantle

Post by Sparkieb on Wed Oct 31 2018, 16:58

This is my first stationary engine project as normally motorcycles are my thing but prices are currently just plain bloody stupid. Anyway went to see a workmate showing his engine up at Newby Hall in the summer and saw these little beauties running so thought id give one a go. Bought from a lovely chap down south who bought it 20yrs ago in a bereavement sale and just sat it under his workbench for 20yrs. Sumps now flushed and barrels are now off, only thing found broken so far is a valve spring. Going to try and put pics on now wish me luck. Cheers Mark

Why isn't running?  Wink

Help !!!! Opinions and knowledge needed regarding Normans paint. Its not too bad but missing small areas, should i remove all the paint or just touch up missing areas. If its the original paint i really dont want to take it off. Do folk brush paint or spray ?

Mine is a sort of Lister/Petter Brunswick Green - what little there is of it. I've seen them in all sorts of colours, depending on whether they were painted by Norman or the manufacturer who built the kit they were attached to.

My previous engines have been taken back to bare metal and spray primed and painted but they all had shrouds / fairings of some sort. With all the nooks and crannies on the T300 I think I'll brush paint in this instance.

Got a spray can and a small amount of paint in a tin today that colour matched oil filler top. Touched up a bit this afternoon, looks wrong but will wait until it dry's for final opinon. Found another green under topcoat that looks more military

Started stripping paint off 2 different greens underneath but base coat is possibly black or the darkest green ever seen. Dont know if i should use the green ive already bought but in my head im already saying no so might just bite the bullet and buy some correct very dark green, ohh and apparently i need an etch primer if i strip it back to bare metal.

Handy hint - use rags / paper towels or whatever to wrap around the pistons when you have the cylinders off.
Also, beware of opening up the crankcase. Apparently it's tricky and special tools are required.
If you whip off the governor cover you will find a small hole that leads into the oil gallery where you can blow through with compressed air after removing oil filter.
