MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Crankshaft weight 1275
|Does anyone happen to know the weight of a 1275 Crankshaft?|
Anyone happen to have one to hand to pop on the scales?
Don't worry, found it, about 10.5kg.
|I've got one in the garage, surprisingly!|
|Just something you have laying around? What happened to the rest of the engine?|
|I think you probably bought some of it ;o)|
|I've got one in a Moss box reground with shells if you need me to weigh it.|
|Ah that engine Dave. It's probably in pretty good condition then. Is it EN16T, or the earlier EN4IIB?|
Hi Richard. if you don't mind confirming my thoughts that it weighs about 10.5Kg. Thanks.
I only have a 1098 hanging around next to 1500 b series.
Ive got to clean this place out!
|This one is EN16, but it didn't come from that engine. That one was EN40, which was nice!|
Well you never know. Soon as I get the midget on the road, I'll drop the sumps on both my Sprite engines and get a look, I might be in need. One of them is "rattling", and may have been ground too far already. I think it's already at least 30 under, and may be a bit scored. I know you can go to 60, but is that wise?
Mine with bubble wrap on it weighs about 11.1kg
It is reground 40M/30BE was a Moss recon unit.
If you get stuck for a C/S let me know as I have the shells/trusts and replaced spigot bearing.
Thanks. As soon as I get my sumps off, I'll know what I need and don't need. Cheers.
