Sure, this V10 won’t be setting any speed records, but it’s definitely something you don’t see everyday, as it’s as 125cc miniature engine. “After completing a V8 I decided I wanted to do another engine. V8 and V12 have been done so I thought I’d try a V10. Initial research showed there wasn’t much info out there, but I figured out the firing order and crank design eventually. To get an even firing sequence the block vee should be 72 degrees, to match the crank angles. The Dodge Viper has a 90 degree block and unequal firing angles.Some engines have 90 degree blocks but have an 18 degree offset on the crank pins, to compensate. I decided on a 10 degree crank pin offset and an 82 degree block,” said its creator. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
“I made some engine mounting brackets to bolt onto the block, and then some soft mounts, which fix to a steel cradle.I wanted to open up the space at the back of the engine to make room for the next interesting bit I’ve always fancied having a go at, which is a triple plate clutch. I realise it doesn’t actually need 3 plates, but I wanted them anyway! The clutch is almost complete now, apart from the friction ‘pucks’ which will be made from ptfe,” adds its creator.
