Granted it is a bit plucked, but one can see better his inner life. It consists of a crank shaft, on which each piston has its own crank pin. Therewith this V engine is similar to the in-line engine, because in the the old definition the V-engine runs ever two connecting rods of the opposite pistons on a crank pin. Why this position is a little outdated, read here.
Just above the crankshaft is the camshaft, which drives the valves via tappets, push rods and rocker arms. Besides the shaft with the counterweights, which should resolve a more worse mass balancing compared with the in-line engine what suceeds only moderately. It also drives to the coolant pump and generator. Why is this engine ever constructed? Sometimes the European subsidiary company made it clear that the top management is based in the United States. Feel free to pursue their own projects, if not something another is planned from above. This half V eight-cylinder comes together with the failed attempt in the country of origin to a front-wheel drive (Ford Cardinal).Sometimes you have to exploit a project in any way. Thus, at least the engine found its place in the Corsair, Taunus, Transit, Granada, Zephyr and Capri, additional in the Saab and Matra. Today it sometimes substitutes in the Ro 80 and DKW Munga the particularly short constructed engines of classic cars. More validity and a longer construction period had the similar V6 engine.
The engine comes a bit difficult out of the starting blocks. At first he is plagued by damage due to weak pistons and not clean working tappets. After correction the engine is in great long-term tests for the hero, rough but durable.
