New to the forum so first of all hello! Been a silent follower of many of the topics, projects/builds for a while.
I have plans for the winter, to add a VMC 177 to my LML motor. To be mated with pipe design exhaust, hopefully for something real fruity!
Currently have the cases split after disaster struck (see pictures) any thoughts? Flywheel was standard weight LML 2.3kg ish which Iím guessing is just too much.
Anyway with the cases split I thought Id match them from my current 166 to the VMC and sort the barrel. Now due to using the longer Conrod and raising the barrel considerably for the port timings, the barrel will sit around 8mm higher than originally intended. This has meant Iíve had to take the spigot openings further back in order to prevent a considerable step into the case ports and also to aid flow.
I think however I might have got a bit trigger happy and Iím worried the bridged areas are now too thin and could crack. (Not sure how stressed this area gets)? I also considered removing the transfer bridges all together but Iím not sure if this could compromise the cylinder and itís fit around the piston
Please can someone tell me Iíve not fooked it cheers
