During this time design work on the P2 continues. Below you can see the cylinder block 3D CAD image, as at present, designed by David Elliott. The second image shows an interesting ‘skeleton’ view of the welds that will be used. The 3D CAD design of the cylinder block and valve gear is now substantially complete; further progress has been made in applying the weld details to the cylinder block inside exhaust passages. Particular attention has being paid to the order of fabrication to ensure that all welds can be completed properly.
Alan Parkin has rebuilt the 3D model of the cylinder block to make it more manageable – this has meant the total file size has now grown from around 25mb to over 250mb! The finished block will weigh approximately five and three quarter tons and will include a quarter of a ton of weld.
