V-12 Cylinder Block


The cylinder crankcase of a V12 engine for utility vehicles from grey iron is displayed above. The specialty of this figure are the still missing 'wet' liners (cylinder) and the thin bridges in between which provide for a small length of the engine.
Controlling the engine takes place via a camshaft, positioned above the crankshaft. The camshaft drives the valves via pushrods and rocker arms. Clearly visible are the two drillings in each case above the cylinders for the pushrods.
The left cylinder block is moved to the back around a connecting rod bearing width as compared to the right block. Thereby, space is created at the left side for the water pump. 05/08
