Default re: 60 MPH...achieveable? Who cares?!? Let blueprint an engine!

My engine runs great for now but, eventually, it's going to wear out and I'm trying to decide if a rebuild would be better than buying another engine. I know the cost will be different but so will the end result! What are your thoughts on that?

Oh, and to keep things on the original thread, yeah, go for 60!


Honestly i'll have to finish this one and do a lesser modified version to answer your question.

The crankshafts are totally out of whack too. They don't spin true, and they are out of balance. This will be part #2 of the build process.

I would guess that aligning the cases, and reworking the crank, alone would make all the difference in the world!
