Second stroker motor I've put together! :cool:

This time using a 74 crank, which it is "claimed" to need no clearancing of the case. Well, it did look like it cleared but I figured it would not hurt to be on the safer side to do at least some clearing since it would be very minimal. The other motor using a 78 crank did require quite a bit more clearance than this one.

It cleared good at the top of the case though.

Image


To ease the crank installation AND prevent messing up the bearing by mis-positioning them against the dowel pins, I marked them first!

This 1699 motor is now running in the Plump Truck with the progressive carb and while it is doing okay power wise, I am going to put the Webers back on it. :-k

Sleeper status! :cool:

This is the 1791cc in the Bug. Looks totally stock down to single carb and pea shooter muffler. :-P

Here's the 1699cc in the Plump Truck. Other than the progressive and the header, also looks like a run of the mill 1600. :smile:

Thanks for the chart, I learned something today!!
Question, (hope it's not a dumb question), with each specific size crank
are different size rods used, and what else different is needed.

I had to ask quite a few questions myself in thedrambadotcom's performance forum too! I'm learning as well. :cool:

Depending on "how big" you want to go, the engine will be wider, but not necessarily every time. While I might have had to use cylinder shims on the 1800, I did not need them for the 1700. However, both got longer connecting rods. I believe stock rods are 5.395" or so, I was told to use 5.5" rods. Not only did this made the shims not needed but also made for less clearance needed at the bottom of the stroke where the piston could hit the crank with a shorter rod. :-s

You should take a ride in the Bug or the Plump Truck, the difference is quite notable! :-P

Finally got some time to take apart the 1800 so as to try to find out just exactly where the "clanking" is coming from. Ok, by some time I mean ALL DAY! Anyway, every item I took apart seemed okay without any tell tale marks of hitting or rubbing...

Up until I split the case! :roll:

I did clearance all that would seem might need it. Well, I "missed it by THAT much!" #-o


Image

Did you see it?

Image
Image

The rod journal was barely hitting that little bit but making quite the noise. So I filed it some more and it appeared to now clear it.

Image



So I slapped it all back together and fired it up... :-/

Still makes some noise but not as loud as before. At this point I will be running it until it blows! 8-[

Obviously you don't know me that well! :roll:

My 1835 had seemingly "oil pressure" issues. Not figuring out how to fix that, I ran it for many years until it finally started coming apart. In the end it turned out that the sending unit was faulty. :-/

My first 2276 had a light knock so I took it apart THREE freakin times but found nothing really wrong with it. Slapped it back together and also ran it until the case cracked around the oil galley. Ran it for years too and it even took me to Floriduh and back! :-P

Not to mention test driving the transaxle on my way to Havafew! :twisted:

oh so you the guy that doesn't practice what he preaches.... got it. :???: :lol:

I am kidding man. I just thought you were the one person that would not run it with a problem until the problem breaks it.
