    Running on Nitrous simply increases the combustion pressure , as its effectively air and fuel mixed together.
    The combustion temperature could essentially be exactly the same - thus no reason to melt anything.
    And as we have talked about before the mechanical forces on the crank and piston increase as the square of rotational velocity and are several orders of magnitude greater than combustion forces
    pushing down on the piston.
    So as I have been saying for years , you could double the power of most any engine and if its not reved any harder its inherent reliability isnt affected ( apart from ring pressure on the bore ).
    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.

    An old exercycle fly wheel, will become the A section drive pully sandwiched into the drive shaft assembly for starter purposes. Three phase motor as the starter on a hinge arrangement.

    Hey Neil , been there done that with the " flip off the belt once its started thing ". A real PITA.
    Use a small auto trans flex plate and a starter motor , way way better.

    Ahr, you havent seen the finished product yet.
    I dont want a 12V system, I want 480V 😆. I want the ability to motor this engine for a time, might be a bit hard on a starter motor.

    Yeah, they are not very strong, its barely strong enough to just hold this end of the drive shaft. All my wooden boxes are in use, ' storing stuff ' 😆.

    Ahh, the good old bottle ones were great. I managed to acquire one before they fell out of fashion. Well before. Every engine I have split and reassembled has been done on that and a million other uses. Super strong, lots of holes for shafts and won't scratch anything. Heck now I'm concerned that I should take better care of it.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Dirty old exercycle flywheel is now a 400mm pully.

    You're right about the longevity or lack thereof of a starter motor.
    Of course Wobbly is right too: belts are a pain. But we don't need them. And since you are already planning a hinged start motor, take a look here:

    The kart tyre was hydraulically driven and pressed against the flywheel, because hydraulic pressure happened to be available on that dyno, but of course you can use your 480V instead. Come to think of it: where do you get 480V? In the old world we are happy with 380V...

    Dyno

    Frits,
    What is under the red half-round guard shown in Koene-3 and Koene-4? Break away torque limiter or a clutch of some sort?

    You gotta have a one way clutch somewhere in a direct driven engine dyno setup.
    Just imagine the chaos caused by the huge drum inertia , continuing to spin everything , if for some reason the engine siezed or the gearbox drive failed.
    I have discovered that a cheap , small one way clutch used on tractor PTO shaft outputs works perfectly , and is easy to adapt.
