2400 engine build

Post by Eddie010 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 4:16 am

Ok,

You guys asked me to put a topic here for the build of my new engine.
This is the plan, been collecting parts. Hope I have enough spare time to do this this summer.
76.4 DPR Counterweighted welded crank with 55mm taps (66mm Rod taps)
ADV performance 133mm H beam rods (22mm piston pen)
Deutz cilinders 100mm
Type 4 100mm JE pistons
Webcam 86b 108 degr lobe center
Thortsten Pieper type 1 cam followers(56gr)
Thortsten Pieper tapered push rods.
NOS 45 Dellorto carbs.
Will be using my current heads 42x36 (stainless steel 8mm stem valves).
30mm ADV oil pump.
Will try to update the built here.

Wanted to built a 4 inch engine (101.6mm) , but costs of machining the deutz cilinders and 4 inch pistons was a little bit to steep.
When i came across the 100mm JE pistons for cheap on e-bay.. the choice was made easy for me.

Oh I live in europe (The Netherlands) It will be in a Cal Look car...
already have a 2.0 type 4 engine (125 HP) own built with upright cooling in my car for 6 years.
Want a bit more HP
But Cal Look guys don t like type 4 engines... But I don t care. :)

Already prepared a CJ case for type 1 lifters.

Looks good Eddie . the cost of boring my Deutz cylinders to 103mm was high but understandable with the time taken to the job correctly , they work out affordable in the long run because you can get them rebored for over size in years to come .
No matter where you go , there you are !
