There's an article on the engine alone on the SM website, but it's a very healthy 186 :twisted:

I've seen and heard it run at the Six banger nats last September. Unbloody real.
Shirley you must be joking? I'm not, and don't call me Shirley.

Wouldn't that wear the belt much faster having the toothed side running over a smooth pulley instead of a toothed one?

To try where there is little hope, is to risk failure.
Not to try at all, is to guarantee it!

Probably does wear a bit quicker that way, but not uncommon. Running the idler on the inside of the belt is not great for belt wrap or orbiting either, though he doesn't have much choice given the pulley diameter and distance between centres.

More info on setting up belts on "weird and wonderful" early Holden superchargers on page 6 of this thread:

The fuel pump drive/timing cover is pretty nifty.

Cheers,

Running in the 8s! :shock: That's a stout effort for a red six in a full size car.

They certainly have the suspension setup well. Lifts the front wheels drops them gently down and runs dead straight. Love it. From when drag cars looked like something 8) 8)
