V. Tech Talk

The thicker the block bore wall is the stronger the engine will be, you can
get a lot of flex with thin bores and lose h/p this way, If you want to go
large bore I suggest a block with a bore size of 90 m/m plus.

Generally the mechanical efficiency in a racing engine, where higher crank
speeds are not a problem, is better with a larger bore and a shorter stroke.
The short stroke results in less frictional loss as piston speed is reduced
considerably, the breathing ability for a given cylinder displacement should
be increased with a larger bore, As there is more area across the bore in
which to fit larger valves. Also if weight is important the short stroke
would require shorter rods hence shorter block all of which add up to a
compact unit. Of course this is a very complex technical consideration as it
is sometimes possible to have the rod ratio too high for the displacement,
resulting in induction difficulties. This is a matter of great balance , and
fine design skills. Success in any racing engine requires an ability on the
part of any racing engine builder to visualise these complex interrelated
principles, this only comes with a good deal of experience and hard work.
crank/stroke versus performance is always a good debating point, stroke
selection may be dictated by class regulation rules, or club organisations.
Beyond this it is interesting to consider some of the power studies i have
conducted, and some of the results from other well known evaluation
programmes. The common factory stroke lengths that can be used when building
the ford xflow combined with after market cranks, Are ranging from 69 m/m to
82 m/m. In low speed engines there is some degree of performance gain with
every increase in stroke lengths up to 82 m/m, there is not much of a linear
increase in output power per 100 c/c as the stroke goes up, there may be
more torque and with considerable work it is possible to attain a good
specific power curve up to a stroke of 77.6 m/m. When maximum specific power
is required for racing purposes other considerations enter the equation , in
this instance the stroke length must be dealt with in terms of the available
rod length and piston design. these are important factors in the induction
efficiency of the engine and after all this is where the power is gained or
lost. The reciprocating piston internal combustion engine can be viewed as a
pump, The more it draws in combustible gases, burns them, spins the crank
and exhausts them back out, The more power it will produce. considering the
requirements of induction efficiency as related to the stroke length, rod
length ,and piston design ,it is possible to gain a fairly decent rod length
to stroke length ratio at any of the given stroke lengths between 69 m/m to
77.6 m/m. When the restrictions of piston design and induction system design
comes into play i feel the best compromise is 72.75 stroke length and bore
size of 86 m/m for a good 1690 cc engine. however any of the common stroke
length denominations will produce a suitable power curve if the overall
engine is properly designed.

Will Rogers, who died in a plane crash with Wylie Post in 1935, was probably
the greatest political sage this country has ever known. Enjoy the following
quotes - Be sure to read his take on aging at the end!

1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3. There are 2 theories to arguing with a woman ... neither works.
4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
5. Always drink upstream from the herd.

7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in
your pocket.
8. There are three kinds of men: * The ones that learn by reading. * The few
who learn by observation. * The rest of them have to pee on the electric
fence.
9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad
judgment.
10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then
to make sure it's still there
11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

AND, ABOUT GROWING OLDER...........

First, Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age
and start bragging about it.
Second, The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
Third, Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people
to know "why" I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the
roads weren't paved.
Fourth, When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think
of Algebra.
Fifth, You know you are getting old when every thing either dries up or
leaks.
Sixth, I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
Seventh, One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is
such a nice change from being young.
Eighth, One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
Ninth, Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
Tenth, Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was
called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.
