Bugatti T57/59 Engine Project

Recommended Posts

I have a challenge for you guys.

Im look for OEM parts to design around. Starting with Shell bearings and Con Rods.
Big End. 45mm Diameter. 35mm wide
Mains. 60mm diameter 28mm wide
Con Rod:
180mm long
45mm bearing (49mm? bearing dependent)
35mm wide
Ive found Subi main bearings in the EG33 are 60mm diameter but they dont look wide enough. Old 911 looks close too.
Same problem with the big end. Lots of 45mm diameter but not wide enough.
The conrod length is super long. Ford Model T or Flathead are 7in which would be fine. But journal diameter is too big.
Hoping you guys can help figure out a combo.
