Any ideas on the story behind that mess?
Military air compressor, something like W6 configuration:
Powered by V8 diesel:
Pushing around 350kg per square cm?:
Is that 5000 psi?
All I know, when they set it to full power, the pipe that releases the air gets frozen all around
Almost. About 4800 PSI.
Nope, but I bet it didn't sound good when it happened.
Somebody better question that guy behind it........he looks guilty
I think that I have seen this picture before and the bent conrod is actually a casting / forging / manufacturing error.
If it isn't, what does the cyclinder block look like!? :huh
if it were a mfg error, then why is it in an assembly? Seems it would have been tossed upon the faulty forming, rather than bolted up to a rod cap and bearing cage.
I know nothing of the manufacturing techniques for engine components of this scale. Maybe that's the jig used to hold the rod for forming?
Look at the broken rod bolt. That was a running failure, not a mfg error. I have a rod and piston out of my sprint car engine that looks sort of like like that (the rod bolt).
Here's the art of engine failure, on a somewhat smaller scale:
Thread over here:
<marquee>We need an Art of Engine Failure Thread!!</marquee>
I dont have any cool pics otherwise I'd start one now, unless it's been done 205 times already.
I think we could name the art of engine failure thread to: Ka-Boom!
I have a few pieces that can go into that one
Maybe we just need a new thread "engine went boom", "that was a running engine". Something like that.
There is a thread named What have you "Offered to the God of Speed" ? found here.
"I'm sure I gapped those plugs"
Szekely aircraft engine SR3
In a Curtis airframe
These are very rare engines today, The owner told me that the term " Dropping a cylinder" came from these. The engines would have entire cylinder and heads fall off in flight :huh
This owner came up with a system to help prevent the cylinders jugs from cracking at the base.
I just wanna say, and I think I speak for many:
Dude, your living room is awesome!
Not my living room. But it is a friend of mine's
