Ok, so I disposed of almost all of the type 1 stuff and started cleaning a type 4 case again

The idea is to use my 74mm Oettinger crank coupled to a moderate bore of 98mm to give 2230cc or almost as 'big' or small as the old motor was.
This time with "someones" billet type 4 heads with T1 exhaust ports (if all plans and promises are met) for improved flow and strength.





Almost everything on the engine will be a little stronger or better in some way, so I'am curieus what the outcome will be!

watching this one with a lot of interest. with what you proved with the last engine and the knowledge you gained from it this could be a very impressive motor.

Can that case still be good after being subject to the past abuse?
Spread center main?
Pounded out/line bore needed?

Dying to see how the case looks.
That last crank was a stock 1.7, right?
Just balanced, no counterweights, IIRC.

If you can just use the case as it sits, it would speak very highly of the setup....

This is another case. I sold the former 2,2 engine as a N/A set-up, but if you go back some pages you'll read that I have openend the engine to change a few things (cam, rods) and that the case was even inspected for hairline cracks and all was good to go again. Even bearings were still good and could have been used again. I replaced them anyways though back then.

The crank was indeed stock 1,7 re-hardenend, polished and balanced. Nothing more.

This time it will be 8mm more stroke, chro-mo forged & counterweighted
