Hello all. After completing a V8 I decided I wanted to do another engine. V8 and V12 have been done so I thought I'd try a V10. Initial research showed there wasn't much info out there, but I figured out the firing order and crank design eventually.
To get an even firing sequence the block vee should be 72 degrees, to match the crank angles.
The Dodge Viper has a 90 degree block and unequal firing angles.
Some engines have 90 degree blocks but have an 18 degree offset on the crank pins, to compensate.
I decided on a 10 degree crank pin offset and an 82 degree block.
It'll become more apparent when I get the pics up. It took a while for me to get my head round it all.
I'm a couple of months into the build now, so I'll just bang a load of pics up first, to get up to date.
I tend to just put pics up with a brief description, so if anyone wants more info then please just ask.
I've got no secrets, everything I do is available if requested, drawings, methods etc.
I also tend to make things up as I go along, so at the moment I've no idea what the heads or exhaust or cooling system etc is going to look like.
Right, rods first.....
