Default Making Alloy Triumph Cylinder Barrels by Alp Racing Engines

Making barrels for Triumph twins, quick change sleeves for top fuel and nikasil plated for street or roadrace. Will test my prototype with my topfuel motors, if I like them and if I have time they will be available.

How does a quick-change sleeve work?

Very cool. Just out of curiosity, did you make any changes to the stock jug dimensions to account for the different material characteristics?

I'm using rhino for the last 20 years and you can run the T-Splines Plug-in for Rhino and it is the same as fusion, I like it but rhino has specific features/plugins supporting hydrodynamics, marine type design work.

It is not press fit, the design allows you to replace the sleeves easily. Top fuel and some other type of racing engines use these type of sleeves.

The first prototype will look exactly like the original barrel.

Thanks

OK, "beautiful" is an inadequate word, but it's beautiful! Carry on!
(I am slowly learning Fusion 360. So far so good, but I really need to invest more time.)

I'm just going to make some billet cylinders for my own racing engines first.

Thanks Phlogisticated, my machinist gets the credit for the machine work.
