The Volksback is now for 3,5 years on the road, and still it is running with the motor I got loaned from my Buddy Ralf! Now it is really time to get going with my own power plant:
The Scat Volksstroker crank - forged, counterbalanced and dynamically balanced:
The con rods are CB performane budget rods, all fine tuned to exact weight
Here is one of them on the scale:
Here is a standard con rod:
Already 4x49 grams = 196 grams of rotational mass reduced!
Here is the Schleicher 316° camshaft and the Scat lifters, 75 grams with center oil hole
First check of the crank in the block:
Ooops: Problem! The case wasn't machined enough to make room for the counterbalanced crank
So, a little grinding was required:
Now the crank spins freely!
