If it goes in a motorcycle.. realistically, it probably will.. it'll be the Lario. ~; ;D
Are you going to build/buy an additional Lario, or stick it on the one you have? :)
Well, if I could find a blown up low mileage Lario.. cheap.. ;D
I wonder what ever became of that Ippogrifo prototype.
If somebody bought the engine in Alabama, they should disassemble it and get those individual parts scanned... that way they would have a 3D backup of each piece, could make replacement parts if necessary, and maybe they could share that information with other small block owners so they could make their own "hemi" small blocks! ;-T
It it was in a plane there should exist a lot of documentation to the engine, somewhere...
That would be an awesome idea.
usually no records from military aircraft surplused to public. you might get "as of data" i.e., hours on the engine (to determine when next maintenance is due) or essential data for whole aircraft sale to determine what time when critical inspections can be scheduled. there is a reason why the records are purged.
It's new...<shrug>I fool with antique airplanes, and the maintenance manuals for them are wonderful. For instance if you have a WW2 L something, there are parts lists, rigging data, etc. until who tied the pup. I haven't found *anything* on the drone powerplant, yet.
as mentioned earlier in this thread, outside measurements and measurements of the valves and their guides, etc. can probable provide most of the data needed to 3D model the heads, without the expense of 3D Laser Scanning...
I'd put money on standard Guzzi parts being inside the Ippo Aero engine. Valves/Guides/crank/bearings/etc.I'll bet they used as few proprietary parts as possible to build the thing. Heads/Valve Covers/Pistons.
His uncle works at the military base, and bought 2 of them Mil surplus. (Probably at pennies on the pound) ;D This guy was planning on putting it on a 2 place very light airplane. His wife thinks differently.. :wife: He has built 3 ultra lights and flown them for years.. told me of an engine failure (surprise surprise) of a Rotax 2 stroke on one of them where he managed to get it down on a road between the (really tall) trees in that area. A plug wire had fallen off and grounded out the magneto. ::) He put it back and took off on that same road with a buddy that is a state trooper blocking traffic on a nearby curve. ;DYes, we saw some cotton. I loved what little we saw of Alabama, other than the language difficulty of course, ;) it was the first time we'd been off of I 65 before.
What was that I was saying about single ignition systems Chuck:)Ciao
Never seen so many cool pic's of a hunter/Ippo mill before, thanks Chuck! ;-T
The two sensors might be for redundant ignition. In the air that's a good thing.
As much as I hate to.. I'm having a good time with the 8 valve and Iceblue's valves.. when the time comes, I'll use the long block from the Aero engine and the rest of the pieces from the Lario engine and put it into the Lario. I've decided that what I don't need is another motorcycle to maintain, license, insure, etc. Unfortunately, it looks to me with some rudimentary measuring that the Lario "wings" won't fit, and the chin fairing for sure won't fit. That takes away some of the styling cues of the Lario that I really like.
