Re: motor is done... (1.BillyT)

I took to 8000 alot... like I said, though, there was no apparent damage to the valves, and the damage to the pistons was old, it didn't happen when the motor let go..
I am stumped. I would have expected any piston to valve contact to be on the intake side for one, and two, to take out the valves that touched... niether of which happened.

8000RPM alot with big cams... How many miles were you revving it like that for?
Just wanna know for personal sake.

Wait..is that a typo? stock pistons weigh 998 grams? No way is that possible.

okay, I just reread that email again... That stock piston weight was with the wrist pin.

Re: motor is done... (FrankiEBoneZ)

Only 1200 miles since last July... but they were hard miles. That doesn't include Uber Golf, though... I beat on the car for a week straight with no problems... including two road course days.

Re: (fast_a2_20v)

I emailed him to get the correct weights... we'll see.
I guess I am not even digesting the numbers he gave me, it's been a long few days.

Billy the best way to read valve float from your valve train is look at the top of the buckets for flat spot marks
Bob.G edit add the reason for the exhaust side float first is the mass weight of the exhaust lifter/spring/ valve

I weighed my pauter/tt piston combo last week and each set with pins weighed 1002g.
Pauters were 586g without big end beaings.
tt (20mm) rods were 604g including big end bearings.
I don't know what the big end bearings weigh, but my gues is that the 998 don R measured means theres about 4 grams in it per set.

Does Pauter have an option for forced pin oiling?

Good idea but that would alter the rods strength. Thinking about it....if the stock rod didn't have the oil gallary it would have had an extra 0.110 cuin more material which may have given in it a better chance...

you mean to tell me you have never heard of the RED-X line of billet, forged, cast rods? man, wtf Val. it combines the properties of a cast rod, forged rod, and a billet rod all in one.

Re: (CEL-4-LIFE)

According to Marco at SEM, AWD pistons work all day long with no modifications with the same Pauter rods that Don is using. Now there are different versions of Pauter's that I've seen comparison pics of. But it can be done with off the shelf parts. And that's what I'm going to do.
If it doesn't work when it comes time, I'll order up some pistons too. lol

You guys really can't see the pic? I see it. If you can't see it, it is a pic of the rods and pistons when they are taking them out of a Top Fuel funny car at the Gatornationals a couples weeks back.
