Better Half engine
« on: September 21, 2020, 06:40:01 PM »
I have a Better Half engine that was begun by someone else.  I intend to disassemble it to see what kind of work has been done on it so far.  one thing that I am curious about is this.  I have never seen the Better Half plans so I don't know what size engine is commonly used.  Scott Casler's engines range from 840cc to 1200cc.  what does the Better Half engine plan show for size? The easiest size to build would be either stock 840 or by using stock crank and 92mm cylinders go to 917cc
with minimum machining.
what are other people doing?

I'm pretty sure that Leonard likes the 92mm bore and stock 69mm stroke (917cc). Should be 30 to 32 hp.
