Lancer Engineering/Coles Power Models Challenger V8
« on: October 28, 2021, 10:04:52 AM »
Hi there,

From a long time ago I purchased a set of drawing of the Challenger V8 from Coles Power Models. At that time I did not have enough to buy the complete castings set (was student back there).

Today I am exploring the idea to give that engine a chance and as first step decided to CAD modeling everything to study. I am pretty sure I have the complete set of drawing but there is some things missing e.g. I do not have the drawing for the oil pump and the carburetor.

If anyone here can help me figure out what I am missing.

Looking forward to read from you.

Best regards.

It will be a lovely engine if you build one.

The drawing for the oil pump was an addition that they tucked at the beginning of the Challenger drawing book (I suspect it is copied from one of the Wall engines), if it is there you will find it just after the three pages of explanations. They may well have failed to put that sheet in your copy so I have attached it bellow.

There is no specific carb for the Challenger: you can fit it with what/however many as you want. My set of castings cam with a single Holt Carb. As it is an American style carb I will probably go with it. But I do not have any drawings for it. I have seen other engines with a bank of 4 carbs fitted.

Enjoyment is more important than achievement.

Many thanks Jo for the drawing. I do not have the said drawing book, I guess it comes with the complete casting set instead of just the drawing set.
I did find an early classified talking about an 12 pages instruction guide coming with the drawing set. I did not had this book with my set.

Regards.
