    Oops, that may have come over pretty rude. What I wanted to say was: put everyting you want to post in a zipfile. That's an accepted file format. 3 cone pipe.zip

    Past experience tends to point into the opposite direction: circlips can be very good at causing disaster.

    And what about that 3 piece pin? Well, what about acceleration values of 5000 g around BDC and 7850 g around TDC (Aprilia RSA at its 14500 maximum rpm)?

    Do you think any built-up contraption would stay together long enough under that kind of stress? You're right about that, providing you use circlips at all. That is why I did away with them and click my plugs straight into the circlip grooves.

    The issue is not the volume of the remaining space, but the cross flow area of the leakage path between auxiliary exhaust ports and transfer ports.

    Turning to the simplest solution I could think of: leave the circlips out (saves weight) and click the plugs directly into the circlip grooves. They will work fine in combination with a normal piston pin (saves a huge amount of money compared to a Pankl pin) and it reduces the aux/transfer leak path better then even the latest domed Pankl pin, shown in the picture below-left. Right is my simple, very light plug.

    There were never any lubrication problems, only a problem when someone used plugs, designed for a Simson piston, in a Kreidler piston which has different circlip goove dimensions. One plug came out, passing through the engine without doing any harm, but then the piston pin started wandering sideways, scraping the cylinder bore.

    Most of the research went into finding the proper plug material. And since I don't expect I'll ever get rich from selling plugs, I'll let the cat out of the bag:
    the plugs are made of Torlon. The stuff ain't cheap, but you'll get about 20 re-usable(!) plugs for the price of one Pankl pin.

    Yep, that's the stuff. Like I said, it ain't cheap.

    was only few bucks to get the stuff lasered and can be upgraded with small bearings + discs to balance cranks.

    As Frits said it's best to zip it up then upload it.

    Engmod STA targets

    starting with blowdown and transfer STA matched to the targets in Engmod
    then increasing transfer STA above the the target (keeping the same blowdown STA)
    the simulator shows better midrange and peak power with no losses over the normal powerband
    So the question is...
    should you stick to target STA values or believe the sim results and go with the higher transfer STA?

    All depends upon the scavenging model you have assigned.
    If you have crap transfer duct/port geometry then increasing the STA, over and above the code estimation, is what you should do anyway.
    But if you are using the Aprilia scavenging model, then this has been proven to be accurate enough to believe as is.
    Ive got a thing thats unique and new.To prove it I'll have the last laugh on you.Cause instead of one head I got two.And you know two heads are better than one.

    The Aprilias had a pickup sensor built into the crank wheel as did the ROC/swissauto/pulse.
    ill have some photos when I get a free moment. I want to take off the cylinder and side covers to have a look inside

    Doh! Thank you Wob. I couldn't see the wood for the trees.
    I do indeed have crap transfers in the sim as there is not much inner wall to play with.
    Maybe a thicker liner would help.

    Yes its all to do with the effective Cd of the port sets.
    An Aprilia sim would appear to favor the transfer STA over the all important blowdown.
    But careful analysis shows that the big radius on the Ex roof dramatically increases the "real " STA as Jan developed the flow regime on
    his test bench.
    If the Cd is taken into account then the STA figures make sense completely.

    Ron Bucanero, cheap stuff I picked up in Denmark on vacation. Wish it was a bottle of Mount Gay.
    I'm fond of single malts too, particularly the peaty stuff like Laphroaig.
