Engine Blueprinting Spreadsheet

Post by Bsherrard » Sat Nov 11, 2017 7:34 am

Note I have also posted this to the type 4 forum:

All -
I have searched all over this forum and the web looking for a spreadsheet that lists / tracks all of the things needed to blueprint a type 4 (or any other) engine. I found reference in the ACT forum to a checklist the Jake uses but the thread has been removed. Before I put in a bunch of work creating one, thought I would ask to see if anyone has one they would like to share? Ideally I would list all of the engine components and have a checklist for the things that need to be verified / machined (ie, dimensions, clearances, weights), a place to input the final numbers for your engine, a listing of the torque values for critical engine components. a one stop document that you populate at the beginning of your build and then use during the process to make you don't miss anything and have a final build sheet when you are done.

Any help, recommendations, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I will answer my own question - looked over on TheSamba and found this thread with a very excellent blueprinting worksheet in PDF format.

Will use this as a starting point and tweak in Excel.
