BlowBy
« on: August 17, 2015, 02:50:46 PM »
So, as noted in my oil change from hell thread, when I ran the engine with the dipstick removed (fresh fill to measured capacity) I got enough of a pulsing wind out of the dipstick hole to put a nice oil mist over everything.  Is this normal on these engines with their small crankcase volume or do I have a problem?  It really didn't smell strong like blowby, I am hoping it is just compressor effect from piston displacement..
C'mon, one of you gullible Norge owners go out with a rag and pull the dipstick and start the engine and tell me what happens to you..   :popcorn:

No that is normal.

[atavar], check your serial numbers on your engine/frame.

If it ends in either a letter or a numerical designation, there may have been a recall addressing this very issue.

It is normal. And no I would never do that.

(Pay no attention to those stains on the wall.......)

I assume it is windage and the simple displacement of the pistons, and less about blowby.

Shared crank pin 90*-V twin.

Crankcase volume varies by about 2/3rds of swept volume between its maximum, when the crankpin is at 12 O'clock and its minimum when the crankpin is at 6 O'clock. Hence the pumping action. On something like a straight four or other multis with crank pins at 180* crankcase volume remains almost constant. On a boxer twin it varies by the full swept volume every revolution.

Gawd, it's sexy when you talk like that. Do you have a CD for sale or something ? I know some women that would respond very positively.

I think you simply have a problem of displacement!   :boozing:

Hey babe, lets go to the bedroom works for me, but she understands displacement and no explanation required.  Oh... I'm also not married.  :cool:  :grin:
