As the piston, piston pin and connecting rod are changed for the shorter piston case, the influence on piston pin, crank pin needs to be re-assessed.
The Chemical Composition of crank pin material was analyzed using positive material identification x-ray fluorescence technique using Oxford instrumentation X-Met 7500 model.
Easy to install base, there is no phenomenon of overturn machine; in the meantime, there is no negative impact load on the reducer and crank pin; so it will not happen, such as fight gear in reducer, crank pin broken.
Main and crank pin bearings also are equipped with a micro-babbitt overlay that provides added start-up protection and corrosion resistance.
The oil passage then continues to another cavity (Figure 2a[6]), which is connected to the oil gallery inside the crank pin. The crank pin also has an inclined oil groove on its outer surface, and a connection is made between the oil groove outside of the crank pin and the oil gallery inside the crank pin via a radial oil-feeding hole (Figure 2a[7]-2a[8]).
