962-160 Engine re-build

by on Apr.18, 2011, under Racing

962-160 was last run at the HMP event at Sebring Raceway in December when it developed a unknown noise coming from the 1-3 cylinder bank. It was later discovered that a weak area on the “4-cam or Water/Water motor” as they are called is the “needle-bearing” in the “wheel house” . These bearings are for the gears that connect the camshafts to the crank. Water/Water engines don’t use chains normally found in a flat-6 boxer engine, they use all staright cut gears from the crankshaft all the way out the the camshafts. The wheel house is what is normally called the chain box on a production engine. The engine has been removed and sent to PMNA for a complete inspection and re-build and will be sent back ready to go ( at least for another 50 hours of fun). Luckily it was diagnosed before the engine suffered  terminal damage and needed a lengthy parts list. It should be back in action and ready to-go just in time for Rennsport IV at Laguna Seca Oct. 2011 so stay tuned for future updates.
