Barrel identification
« on: 14 Mar 2019 at 11:59 »
Hi,

Bore is quit large with around 75mm.
Location of ports are oposite aand not as for S6/T6 models.
Its not Mastiff as well.

Any idea?

The shape is as for the 1936-38 500/600cc Aero models. However those were not offered as a 750cc to the best of my knowledge. Just 60 and 68mm bores (68mm stroke).

-Doug

Correction, Aero models & stroke: 68 x 68 and 74 x 68.

They could be 'Aero' as the spec sheet for the DC/38 model lists the bore size as 74mm.

Oops, my mistake. I was looking at the bore figures for the earlier 82mm stroke engines. The 500 and 600cc Aeros were 68 x 68 and 74 x 68 respectively. Previous post updated.

Thanks for quick comments.
It make sense for a late Aero 600 with shorter stroke and big bore.
Heads looks also quit "modern" - they dont have the cooling plugs.

Thanks Bernd

Not checking dimensions but they looks exactly like the cylinders on my Aero?

Thanks for pictures.
My barrels looks exactly the same - 36...38 Aero I learned.

Front barrel has an union for oil?
Rear barrel not.

Bernd,

The union is to vent oil mist from the front tappet chest over (via a aluminum tube) to the primary chain case. You can just see this tube in the photo previously where it emerges from behind the oil lines and intake manifold.
