Sneak peak..Don't tell anyone you saw this
« on: January 13, 2011, 11:33:00 pm »
OK, this looks like one of those trick APE cranks... Look closer, it is a Hondamatic crank...but what you can't see is that it is a 5 mm stroker.

Add one of these 68 mm stroke cranks to your APE 1000 cc kit and you have a stump pulling 1077cc.

No don't go telling everyone about this  ;D

If you can't afford Jays 1,000cc conversion or Mikes 1,000cc billet block, this crank will take your 836 out to 902cc. 8)

I am not sure what this customer is doing for rods, but we would do this to any 750 sohc crank and supply 2.5 mm shorter Carrillos.

Oooher, so with 70mm pistons this'll give you a capacity of 1077 cc, then that'll give me 1138cc with my 73mm pistons? Anyone wanna buy a shiny new lightened and balanced APE crank, I think it's time I upgrade! ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

Nah mate, if I lived in the US I would, but with shipping (even a lightened crank weighs a bloody ton!) the price for the machine work was roughly doubled what you see in the APE catalogue. (and I only had it shipped one way!) ;D

Just when I thought I had the wish list fullfilled.   :D

Big Jay, that is perfect.

How are you Sam
Well, if these rods manage to get turned into Nasi Goreng, I'm taking my ball and going home to Mum.  ;D
Great news that the "Samauto" is moving forward.
We're all waiting with baited breath to hear about it roaring into life.

I'm itching myself Mick, It'll soon be March and I've just paid my air fare. 8)
Another thing I'm itching to see is, who is going to be the first one to fire up their JMR billet motor.
I spoke to Eric the other night on the phone, his motor is ready to go and he was just waiting on his CR750 frame to come back after being converted to CR spec.

All going well Sam, I'm hoping that there will be some thunder from Down Under coming from Mikes Billet Motor this year.
A few other unforseen hurdles to deal with last year slowed progress for a bit and Mike is preparing the cylinder head.
One thing is for sure, it is going to happen.  ;D

Plus one on the hurdles Mick, mine will be done this year as well but having to get everything from overseas is a slow and tiring process...
It has to be done right though..... ;)

We'll get it mate.
Just gotta keep the wood on it and nothings going to stop progress even if things slow up a bit.
Do it once and do it good.

Why can't a base plate be used wth the stock rods?

I couldn't get my head around that one either Frank, but never having played with a stroker, thought I'd best keep it shut. ::)
See ya March. 8)

Wouldn't a base plate mean that you have to have another gasket, therefore you are just giving the engine one more place to leak..?

I've fitted 900 DOHC rods before and a .060" spacer plate under the block with no problems.
If everything is perfectly clean and flat, it should all be good.

At first, I thought it was the maths playing with my head but when you take a step back and think about it ::)
It's the crank that determines the stroke. The length of the rods only determine where the piston reaches in the bore.
With the shorter rods, the piston don't pop out the block (no need for spacer) but it travels further down the block.
As long as the sleeve is long enough at the bottom and it and the pistons clear the crank, no problem. ::)
