    9.5 pistons are taller above the wrist pin than 8.5 pistons. I think you answered my question. You do a lot deeper machining on the 9.5 pistons. How does that work versus less machining on 8.5 pistons. I would think machining the pistons versus the heads would have the modifications in the piston tops filling with carbon?

    Despite you saying that you focus on squish band and not CR, it still sounds like you are running more CR with 136.5 rods than I am unless you are taking a whole bunch off the tops of those pistons?

    I am going to look on your sight for those pushrods. I am using 4130 but I think I could get by with less because I am running stock springs with stock preload. Another thing I like about 336's.

    Once again. It's all up above in black and white. RG is the one spreading it. In German this time but that doesn't make it any better. Responding to personal crap is not spreading personal crap.

    I just looked at the Edleweiss website. Those pushrods look like steel? Are they anodized? Price and weight? Alloy? I am very interested.

    This is the best thread in a long time.

    Use the Google translator if you skipped high school German.

    I didn't see anything particularly objectionable.
    It could be the translation software you used did a poor & misleading job.

    Translation software? Give me a break. I took 16 credit hours of German in college but that was a long time ago. I never did really get familiar with subjective case. Plus I had two German friends right there reading it with me. I should say trying to read Carl's post. That had them both laughing. Particularly objectionable? Of course you didn't see anything particularly objectionable. You never do other than me responding to RG's personal BS. You don't see me going on about RG and his ways like you see RG going on about me although it would be all too easy to do but I refrain myself like RG should. You do see me responding to RG's personal BS. Sorry you don't like that but the place to stop that starts and finishes with RG in THIS case. You guys seem to assume that everyone is in your shoes. Fortunately, that is not the case.

    billy p! The free online Babylon site was used to translate your drool. If you had your two German friends right there w/ you they would easily have known it was software such as Babylon that did the translation.

    Greetings Dirk!

    In your eight posts here at advrider you've shared more technical info, and in a more pleasant/interesting manner, than any 5K plus odometer poster. That is so kool!

    Hmm.. a bit pressed for time at this moment. I'll comment on the sound vibes discussion down the road. Time to go listen to some Ege Bamyasi.

    Cheers,
    Carl

    On their site. Click on 2 ventiler. Then on the left click on ventiltrieb. My German isn't good enough to read much.

    Sure. Everyone knows that all Germans are very familiar with babylon translations. Your genius never stops to amaze me Carl DC. DC stands for 'don't care'. I don't know what your last name is. I have never cared to look into it. Or remember it if I have ever come across it. Even though you sure do seem to be proud of knowing mine. It isn't suppose to be a secret I hope you have figured out by now although I still don't want it used on this forum per what the moderators told you in the past. I believe that was you? It is against the rules unless it is alright with me and it isn't but then again you always have to push it when it comes to dragging this forum down with BS and now you think you are taking it up a notch with babylon translations? You should give me a break too.

    I was hoping your German wasn't that bad. ITMT, MOST everyone knows those online translators can be pretty bad.

    Edelweiss Motorsport, I am currently building an engine and would appreciate your insight in the following issues. When machining the piston to head squish band do you make each parallel to the other or slightly open in angle? What clearance do you recommend? Thanks for any input you care share.

    Most excellent thread*** I'd skipped over the early part because I thought it was another 2-to-1 (oil/battery/tire) thread.

    Carry on.

    *** of course, I've got some on Ignore, which helps. ;)

    Typical Superschuft infested thread...

    Would be interesting for Dirk to comment on the common Street Cams seen here abouts, other than the 336.

    Read your PM.
    This post was not intended to be a personal offence.
    Just a warning to a newbie to this forum.
