Chris,
I was searching back in you build post for some info on your pan chop and ran across your thinking about possibly using an Accusump for additional oil volume. If you and F/b decide to go that way let me know I have an approx 2 qt Accusump that you can have for the cost of the freight, I will also provide a 12VDC isolation valve. These are parts from our lakester that I decided we really didn't need and so removed. Just taking up space in the shop.

Rex

I'll take it, and THANK YOU, Rex!

 cheers

Can we add the name 2017 Certificates to this thread as I have heard nothing for quite a while.  If we had sponsors they would be a bit disappointed with what we have to show for the hard work in getting the record.  So far only the hand written confirmation from Tech.

midget,

Quote from Diamond for a set of 4 pistons & pins, at cost:

75.5 mm bore dia; 30 mm comp ht.; 16 mm pin dia.

Fully machined billet only, grooved to suit rings supplied.
pins H11 custom only


No ring pack in quote.  You need to supply

   $807.00
+$250.00    for scanning combustion chamber mold
+  shipping, etc.

Probably looking @ $1100 total cost and you will need to either throw them a "bone" or order yourself.    Not sure what price you might get quoted as an individual buying direct.

Good news is:  delivery in 3-1/2 weeks or so plus time in shipment.

 cheers
F/b

Your material choices seem just fine to me. If I were doing the job I'd just build up weld in those two partial holes until you had a solid weld to the surface and then grind them level with the rest of the surface. There's no need to fill the whole hole. I'd grind out the thread where you're going to weld just to ensure a perfect weld. All welding should be carried out with the pan bolted firmly to the block.

Good luck.

Pete

Thanks Pete.   It's been a while since I've done any "serious melting" . . . . .

What you described is pretty much my plan, although I wasn't going to grind out the threads.   Thinking about it though, grinding threads out is a good idea because there is no way to get all the oil/dirt out of threads, and that crap would just contaminate the weld zone.   I should know better though.

Yeah, the crank will get removed, and everything else will get bolted up big time.

 cheers
F/b

That's pretty darned slick!

Mike's got good chops.

Let Mike know I have the axle housing.  I'd be willing to run it down to him on Saturday.




View of the oil pan plug from the opposite side.    Can anyone identify the foundry or material from this logo?



Just as I suspected - recycled Boddingtons cans . . .




midget,


A/   Yeah, Mike is a pretty good machinist.   Check out this billet cam drive housing/front mount plate for his SCCA "Turdner".    Designed & machined by him in his garage! !   Works bitchin' . . . . .







BTW, the photos are from Mike's dyno session @ T&T.    Engine is an English Ford 1537cc Cross Flow with restricted choke and valve sizes.


2/   I've let Mike know about the housing.    Just have to determine the delivery schedule.

d/   Of course it is the "recycled" logo . . . .    I was just hoping I was mistaken.    Maybe the pan is recycled Old Speckled Hen cans . . . . .   undecided   but, probably too much to hope for . . . . . .

 cheers
F/b

I wrote to them about 2 months ago  and also posted on this forum asking for info on being a volunteer and got no reply back.  Guess they don't need any help so I decided to make plans elsewhere.  huh

I too am not very impressed with the way they are running things.  Sounds like they are so worried in making sure that everything is perfect on the admin side that they are forgetting that they are going to need actual cars and bikes to participate and volunteer for the show to happen.

All welding should be carried out with the pan bolted firmly to the block.

Absolutely, particularly with this "stacked sandwich" construction.  You'll note the flange at the back, and how it's reinforced with the webbing inside the pan.  It's a quasi-structural area of the entire block assembly - which includes the pan - and in addition, Mark whittled away part of the bellhousing flange to fit the starter.

The girdle is still unmodified, but after everything external is done on the block and we've got the ARP Studs torqued into place - when we're confident that everything has settled down - at that point, we'll do the align hone.

I'm thinking that might be an operation we'll want to do with the transmission adapter torqued into place, as well.

When you are shooting to be the fastest wheeled vehicle on the planet, why are there any construction rules at all? (safety excepted)

It is probably because the governing bodies (responsible for 'World' outright speed records) have to protect themselves from the reckless, whose interpretation of "safe" may not in fact be so. At the end of the legal battle over who was responsible for the loss of a driver (or indeed rider) the lawyers on behalf of the family of that driver or rider or pilot, will point at those who facilitated and had overall control of the speed record attempt concerned. The first such mega million legal action could lead to the end of continuing governance.

As has been posted on another thread there will be aerodynamic studies required for FIA speed record contenders in 2019. [Could this come to the SCTA/BNI in future years?]
