I only see 4 main bearing saddles and 3 cam bearing saddles ? 115mm is a 4.5" bore. The bore spacing could be changed and still run Type lV cranks and cams. The dropped cam would only need a larger gear set. Pauter Big Block motors have a dropped cam. I have been running the translation program, and it's still running so I haven't been able to read the topic.

Remember these cylinders 111.125mm-4.375" Bore: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=108461&p=779408#p779408.

Google Chrome has a translate option, but you have not missed much at this point of time Richard, mostly people congratulating Edi Remmele on the new project. He certainly is a very talented builder.

Hi Richard!

Now that you mentioned it:indeed!only four bearings.But in his own comment Edi mentioned five(?)
He also mentions a cam drop.He has got his own Biral-liners.
If I read his comment right then this is a tryout to see if they can machine a case from scratch.In 96mm stroke form
it will then have five bearings.I wonder if this is a crank from a existing production enigine?

Hi Arnoud

I have Google Chrome, and is the translation program I am running, but it runs & runs, never completing.

The current case he's machining I just don't see five, and I don't see him spending double to do another case ?
So will have to wait and see how the case develops.

Pauter does a 96mm stroker for his Big Blocks, same amount of bearings.

Maybe he doubles up the snout bearings to better drive a blower?
