They also raise compression from 8.2:1 to 9.75:1. The beauty is that because the hypereutectic piston incorporates over twice the silicon content of standard piston alloy, the thermal expansion of the material is less than that of traditional cast or forged pistons. This feature allows closer piston-to-wall clearance, which stabilizes the rings for better sealing and prevents piston slap, prolonging skirt life. The KB Silvolite cast hypereutectic pistons (left) further reduce reciprocating mass by 38 The KB piston design positions the top rings closer to the combustion chambers. Thus they operate at a higher temperature and require increased endgap settings. While a typical cast or forged piston top-ring endgap might be 0.020, Emley set the Total Seal moly-filled top rings at 0.030 to allow for plenty of expansion. The second ring endgap is set at a more traditional 0.018 inch due to its greater distance from the combustion process and cooler operating temperature. The KB piston design positions the top rings closer to the combustion chambers. Thus they After degreeing the cam, Emley measured piston-to-valve clearance and found 0.260 inch on the intake and 0.290 inch on the exhaust. The minimum numbers are 0.100/0.125 , so the Isky 292 Mega's 0.505/0.505 lift and 244-degree-at-0.050-duration figures are supersafe thanks to the KB pistons' deep valve pockets. At TDC the piston is 0.019 below the deck except for the quench dome that fills the chamber and restores compression. Remember, the KB piston valve notches are indexed to match the E-I-I-E-E-I-I-E valve layout in the cylinder heads. Pay attention during assembly so you don't mix things up and go clang when you start it up. After degreeing the cam, Emley measured piston-to-valve clearance and found 0.260 inch on « | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | » | View Full Article Enjoyed this Post?
