Ups delivered my cylinder head to Mondello's yesterday!
Looks like they have started using Carrillo rods on those cranks.Same rod as we use.It's a nice crank set-up.Real strong.
That conrod will probably be made by Alpha bearings for Hitchcocks, as they have recently started making such things. They [first?] made a rod like that a couple of years back, that being a one - off for our 'short rod' 350 race engine, which retains the standard 70 X 90 dimensions. This machine was taken to 8000 rpm on the dyno on countless occasions and even saw 10,000 rpm once on the track! So, probably not Carrillo, but vey strong nonetheless B.W.
The concept is sound but the perfection of design and materials are yet lacking eh?Like the Wankel Rotary Engine and its similar issues...
Not to hi-jack, but Wankel Rotories are in a class of their own. And if they were flawed they wouldn't still be making them today. Have seen a turbo 20B Cosmo Turbo in action?They eat V8's for breakfast. The twin turbos lay down over 700hp @ 9,000 RPMs. But they are lot like an Enfield. You have to tear them down a fairly regular basis for decarbonization and apex seals (the equivalent to piston rings).http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gK8536vxMashttp://www.srmotorsports.com/Stage5.jpg
