The Hartley H2 shows 11.6cm crank centerline to lowest part of oil pan so I'm sure Hartley could make some modifications to the H1V8 to make it shorter - esp considering ~28mm of that 164mm is pulley oil pump pulley diameter.Formula None wrote:Nice pics, thanks for sharing, Snake.
7cm floor to gearbox input shaft centerline, huh? Well, we all knew the cranks and clutch were tiny on these things, but even the H1V8 looks a little tall in that regard:

Brand new engine, bought directly from factory in September 2002 and never used. The dyno sheet shows an impressive 760 BHP at 14,000 rpm, 2 new engines immediately available. Each engine can be purchased for EUR 40,000. The whole lot of the 2 engines can be bought for 75,000 EUR. This is your last chance to be able to buy a new Lamborghini 3.5 l engine, as all the other ones have been sold already and used.
Note: Two original matching gearboxes, fully serviced, can be purchased for an additional 12,000 EUR each (further information available upon request). FH Electronics can develop a new injection system, adapted to your requirements, for 15,000 EUR including components. Maintenance is fully ensured by 2 top teams, 1 in France and 1 in Italy.
This item is available immediately. The price includes all European Union taxes and commissions.
Forget about that plan. The only thing you can change are some gears but how you want to rise a complete shaft in a given gearbox?F1snake wrote:The input shaft sits 7 cm above the floor of the gear box casing. that is 17 cm of the garage floor. I haven't got the rear under tray fitted at the moment, so I can't give you the mesure between the tray and the input shaft. I wouldn't get too hung up in the shafts position, as we may not use that actual transmission. We might have to remove it and build our own within the casing.
