Heo,
on Facebook, search YBloke or Lindsay Shoemark, (no space between Y and Bloke)
I heard he is working on a installation kit with all the parts needed for the conversion..
my parts got to the states in a week but took over 2 weeks to clear US customs,
excellent casting and machine work.
if you order, be sure to order his crank pulley and adaptor if you opt for the big belt..

A blower with high swirl heads?The combustion chamber must be like a centrifuge.

The Y Block power production certainly does make your head spin!  Can a Hi Swirl FE head be far behind? As out resident y block guru J.C. always says  "There is magic in those over/under ports".  LOL

Actually High swirl in not completely accurate.. The Y block has a Ricardo chamber which is more high turbulence than swirl.  The purpose was to prevent detonation from the sketchy fuels available in the early 50s . Turbulence gives a more homogeneous mixture of fuel and air and also reduces the amount of timing required for max torque. Where a small scrub needs as much as 40 degrees, I have never dynoed a Y block that needed more that 34 degrees..

Flow....  Not so fast Prof. Brown..  A stock G  head  on a 292 Y block  flows about .75 cfm/cu. in.  A 428 CJ head flows closer to .5 cfm/cu in

"Ricardo chamber"....Jay will counter with "You may be on Fantasy Island".Selling the Mermaid will allow you to repair the Ohio/Peruvian designed engine.

Leema, as in Lima, Peru, or Lyma as in Lima, Ohio?  The 429-460 engines were nicknamed "Lima" by some instead of 385 series.  Joe-JDC

Thanks Joe for nailing that down.. Steve's references sometimes get a little obscure and tangential.. I should have figured it out but was hung up on Andes mountains and the Inca empire...
