Re: Saturno 500 barrel into Norwest case??

I have a whole 500 Saturno top end barrel piston and head, so the head the barrel joint is standard Saturno.
It was just if the barrel will go into the crankcase and studs line up.
Is the little end of the conrod the same size from 558 Nordwest to 500 Saturno?
regards

Re: 558 Nordwest engine into 350 Saturno

Is the Saturno cam for power at higher revs? Is the Norwest more for lower revs torque what's the "best" cam to use?
I think I would rather go for lower rev grunt than top end, but I expect they would not be a HUGE difference between them??

Re: 558 Nordwest engine into 350 Saturno

I just bought the cylinder head from a 500 Saturno! :) :) It will go on the 558 engine to go in the 350 Saturno chassis. What mods are needed for that conversion? Do the water ways line up or do they need "porting" to get them to line up? Can I use the standard 500 valves or should I make ...

Re: 558 Nordwest engine into 350 Saturno

Well I did buy my old Black with white wheels 350 Saturno back. Then I loaded it in my van and took it to my fathers workshop (350kms away, were the good tools live!) and spent a long weekend working on the bike as it had not run in the 10 years since I sold it.... New oil, filter, belt, fork seals ...

Re: making the Saturno as light as I can, ideas...

After a long absence I am back working on the bike.
BUT I am going to be a bit less obsessive about some of my more radical weight loss ideas...

I want to get the bike back on the road again and use it some more.

Re: 558 Nordwest engine into 350 Saturno

Mods to the head to get the tacho to work all sound doable! Thanks for the advice. I have a complete Nordwest engine with ignition bits so I will swap the whole thing. I will make a one into two manifold and use a 40mm carb of a 500 Saturno that I have coming. I have ordered some Wilbers springs for...

Re: 558 Nordwest engine into 350 Saturno

Can I take the drive gear off the 350 engine's cam and fit it to the nordwest cam???
How hard is that??

Drilling the hole for the drive would be easy for me as I have a workshop with milling machine etc.

Thanks guys.

Re: 558 Nordwest engine into 350 Saturno

Great info thanks! I didn't know about the tacho being different. Can I take the cams from my 350 and fit them in the Nordwest head? That would give me a cam with the tacho drive on the end... Are any or all of the cams interchangeable between models? How hard is it to find a 500 Saturno head??? Any...

558 Nordwest engine into 350 Saturno

Hiya guys, I am looking at buying back one of my Saturnos and fitting the 588 Nordwest engine I have spare...
