    Nourish weslake 950.

    Hi all
    new member to all this, just want to show the newest build I've done.
    It's based on the cafe racer theme. Nourish weslake 950 engine. 180 degree crank z profile cams with 14:1 comp ratio. To run on methanol.
    Which turns a norton 4 speed ATM ( changing to a 5 speed modified to sit in a 4 speed housing.)
    Placed in a featherbed frame. Still only in the early stages lots of things to change an modify after it's first run down a drag strip.
    Cheers

    Are you in the UK Sean? Must be an older nourish engine if it's running z cams on a 180 crank?

    Well I brought the engine about 10 month ago. He had got it specially built back in the late 80's
    to go into a drag bike. Hence the high comp. it has over size pistons an values an Amal carbs already set up to run methanol. I got all the manuals, parts books am receipts from when it was ordered from dave nourish. But the project never happened. The engine sat in a create all sealed up for 25 years. I already had the featherbed frame laying around at home an a fair few bit an pieces to start the build. Still had to buy an make a lot of parts to complete the build. Still long way to go to get it the way I want. The engine was made to have a output of 100bhp on methanol. An after it's first major ran/ race, it has every bit of a 100bhp. Im thinking of dropping the compression to make it more user friendly. Name:  image.jpg

    Jag read this first:
    Weslake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    an then this:
    Any diff between a Weslake and a Noursh-Weslake? | The Competition Forum | BritBike Forum

    And just to add to it: in addition to triumph heads, Nourish produced complete racing engines. They are kinda rare. Apparently they come up often enough in England but here in the US I don't know of any. I know hoof has a 500cc weslake single here but I think he brought that over himself.

    You can still buy a complete race engine, or an 8 valve head / barrel kit for yourTriumph from a guy who has taken over the business after Dave Nourish retired. They`re still made under the Nourish name.

    Here is one of the nicest bikes Ive seen with a Nourish engine, built by Kenny Cummings and Minnovation Racing.
