Wow. You shouldn't show the lathe clip. Someone's going to see that and think it's ok to do. You're a fart away from losing some fingers with the grinder and no gloves. But on a lathe that's bevis and butthead stuff. Take a few seconds and use a bandsaw leaving a few millimeters. Then face the end of it with a cutter on the lathe. Also stick as much as you can in the chuck. With your part hanging out like that with out the tail stock live center it's going to taper big time. Just a general rule of thumb. I'm no expert but the only hand held tool on a lathe should be a file to smooth an edge. Other than that it's a cool project you got going

Pretty sure that turbo company was just smart enough to say that so everyone would buy the oil from them without worry of warranty I’m sure any oil will work that is the correct viscosity

You need to set the deflection on the drive belt. It shouldn’t be that loose. You tighten in by adjusting the sheaves on the secondary. They are open too much. It will engage smoother and start off at a slower speed. To get lower engagement rpm you can put a softer initial rate spring in the primary.

Those early MkII Spitfires are so rare now. In the northern hemisphere, most rusted away years ago. I'm sorry, but this is such a waste of a pretty car which looks original and rot free. It would fetch about £8k in the UK - but not now.

Long shot: I actually have one 1965 spitfire seat if you want it. It needs reupholstering. Let me know! I also have a Flex Plate Shield and planetary shield for a power glide tranny which might help in building your guards in the cockpit. Shield looks like this, but not a TCI.

Great post. Nothing like the first start on a project. I don't know what the horse power of that engine is, but gear it right and I figure it will be BAAAAD. I love semi, "Seat of the pants" engineering and fabrication. Making gaskets brings back many memories.
