300 pistons for the 240 rod

Post #1 by pmuller9 » Thu Feb 13, 2014 11:52 pm

Shown is an AutoTec custom piston for the 300 for use with the 240 rod at zero deck.
It is a forged 4032 alloy piston.

CD is 1.190"
.912" pin
10 cc dish
4.037" diameter for a 4.040" bore.
Piston weight is 454 grams
Pin weight is 119 grams

I checked stock piston weight as 669 grams
and stock pin at 148 grams.

Still love those! OK for turbo (zero deck height) ? More of an RPM durability set up?

These pistons have a 10cc dish for 9.75:1 compression ratio @ zero deck using a carb head with 77cc chambers.

Cam has 288 advertised duration for a dynamic compression ratio around 7.5:1
Autotec will make you a piston with a larger dish volume for turbo use.

Our goal was to drop a lot of piston weight for reliability at 5500 rpm.

The engine is still not completed yet due to finances.

That my friend is well thought out. I am excited about that project. Most of the engines I have seen built precluded or gave away high rev possibilities. I have read about the FTF engines with high compression, higher RPM, ect....Seemed out of reach.

Forgive my ignorance but is this for using a 240 rod with a 300 crank? What rod ratio would that make? If so this would make a great street/strip piston and makes me want to grab 240 rods

That is correct. Not sure of rod ratio but will reduce piston side loading at bdc. Main reason for these is reduced weight for high rpm operation. Use a 240 rod without oil spit holes. I believe they are available already re-sized from Summit. Use ARP bolts and good to at least 6,500 rpm. Big fun.

67,

Sorry for the bum steer. I just looked at Summit & Jegs too. Neither list anything for our sixes that I could see. I know Summit had them at one time. I guess I'd better scrounge up a set from my motor pile.

I don't know if this is helpful to anybody, but I order custom pistons for my 300 ci motors with the 240 rod length from Diamond. Watch their video:

I hear alot of drag racers talk about that piston how does the cost compare? Im sure they are not money but quality is worth it. Ftf any place you know of that has 240 rods? Its ok worken i was just excited summit might have something for our sixes :bang:

The 240 "No Hole" rods were made from 1965 - 1968 forging# C5AE
I got a set of cores from B & P Rods in Magnolia Texas.

Get 7 or 8 rods so you can have a better chance of getting 6 good rods.

Remove the rod beam forging lines yourself and shot peen.
Another board member had B & P do the finish work and the beams were ground cross ways instead of along the length and it didn't look like they were shot peened.

Since we were doing a naturally aspirated build the AutoTec 4032 alloy pistons are sufficient in strength and allows a little tighter piston clearance at .003" than the 2618 alloy pistons.
The 4032 alloy pistons were also cheaper than the 2618 alloy pistons at the time.

after the rod bolts, the next 'weak link' to let go is the rod breaking at the oiling hole.

the 2.3L has the same feature and the problem is much more documented in those engines, as they tend to be built to run higher rpms.

Would the ones with the oil hole be okay for a street engine that was going to be rev limited to 5500-6000 rpms? And 9.5-10 /1 compression?

Wouldn't 6500 rpms be a bit high for the stock crank? And would you be able to port the head enough to take advantage of that rpm range. My car will mostly be street driven so i probably won't need that much. But im curious

FTF has the most experience with high rpm use.

I wasn't planning on anything passed 5500 rpm on the street.
It mostly depends on the piston and rod weight, obviously the lighter the easier it is on the crankshaft.
I suspect the biggest concern is the connecting rod strength.

What is your horsepower goal?

My good friend had a 240 turning 7,200 when it came apart. Per the tell tale tach. He was ahead of me a half dozen or so car lengths when it happened. It had the spit hole rods. That's what broke. The rod bolts were still in place of what remained of the rod big end.

Sure made lots of smoke.

My horsepower goal is 325hp to 350hp i know i will sacrifice some low end torque but im running this in a lighter vehicle than most. Being that its mostly street driven im looking for a 4500-5500 as the horsepower peak rpm

That's about what I'm looking for in this engine build. I was waiting for the owner to get the rest of the parts needed but I may just have to do it myself and get this engine on the dyno.

What are you doing for head work and cam?

To get that much naturally aspirated you will probably need to rev it to 6500 - 6800.

Heads have been CNC ported to over 200 cfm intake and 160 exhaust
232/232 .050" on a 112 LSA, .524" lift with 1.6 rockers

I'm figuring a 95% VE
1 inch pressure drop across the carb
.50 BSFC with a 12.5 A/F ratio

I'm showing 324 hp @ 5600 rpm and 350 hp @ 6100 rpm

The cam grinder's sim program showed about the same.

However there's no substitute for field experience.
It'll be fun to see the actual results.

Mine is going into a 67 comet a bit lighter than the truck yours is going in. Does that simulater also take into account the 120 degrees of crank rotation vs a bent 8? Most of the ones ive seen don't and they are off when it comes to torque

The software I'm using does not and I'm sure the simulator the cam supplier was using didn't either.

Which way is the error. Does it favor the L6 or do we lose torque?

Depends on how much lift and the rocker arm ratio you plan to use.

I stayed at .534" lift with a 1.6 BBC rocker. Spring pressure is right at 300 lbs open, 115 lbs closed
That's 300 x 1.6 or 480 lbs on the lifter.
If I were to use a 1.7 rocker, lift would be .567", 312 lbs open pressure, 530 lbs on the lifter.
50 lbs difference.

If you go to a solid, remember that the advertised duration is shorter because of the tappet clearance.
The duration should be measured at (Tappet Clearance/Rocker ratio)+ .006" lobe lift.
This is usually around .018" lobe lift instead of the .006" for hydraulics.
The shorter duration will increase your Dynamic compression ratio so you would need to decrease the Static compression ratio that you would have used for the same .050" duration hydraulic cam.

If you go to a solid, you could look at using the lifters with the EDM oiling hole in the lifter bottom.

I'm not sure about solid lifter yet but since ftf mentioned id probably have to spin it to 6500 rpm i figured that was into solid lifter territory. Im more interested in doing a custom roller cam for various reasons one being a more aggressive cam and cam life

You shouldn't have to spin it much past 5500 rpm.
If you need power above 6000 rpm, the cam gets fairly "large" with a lot of valve overlap and not very street friendly.

The roller cam is a very good move for the reasons you mentioned plus no cam break-in procedure.

It was chosen for peak torque (350) at 3600 rpm and peak power (325) around 5500 rpm.
I suspect it will pull fine from 2000 rpm. The only thing that might keep it from having more torque than stock at 1500 rpm is the 8 degrees of valve overlap.
That's why I had the cam ground on a 112 LSA instead of 110 degrees.
You get 4 degrees less overlap, better idle and gas mileage along with more torque just above an idle.

Don't forget that the cylinder size is the same as a 400 cid V8.
Try putting this same cam profile in a 302 V8 and see what you get for low end.

If I was to do a roller cam for street/strip, the valve lift would be in the .600" range.

Im looking for mostly street and occasionally road course for fun not sure on drag racing the car maybe once or twice to get some times. In my application. .600 lift sounds like alot but im still learning. Im really hoping for a strong pulling engine that leaves people at the stop light wondering what hit them that isn't a complete dog on top end :nod:
