Re: Crankshaft experiment

sorry jack, but for such experiments A/F Ratio should be monitored continually .

the change in A/F ratio is much more quickly as expected and parts are so expensive......

the experience you will made with a A/F reading system you can always taking with you to a next engine.

We should note the motors application: Off-Road MX and Cross Country racing so sustained high rpm runs like road racing or highway drones are unlikely. Lots of rev changes up and down as well as motion accel and braking... this is ONE reason why the the mod ( lubbing rockers from feed pump ) is wor...

yes, - you are sure on the saver ( but louder ) side if you give it a 0.1 mm of clearance.

BTW, the result of the cracks in my old pushrods was as they are getting bend as higher the revs have been, ergo as louder the rattling it was :!:
