Wonder how the T4 would respond with a crank that has throws at 90 degrees at each other--instead of the 180 degree config---this and change the firing order to reflect a burn event on one side of the engine at a time--like : 1, 3, 2, 4

Instead of one side-followed by two same side, then last one side again---: 1, 4, 3, 2---

There would have to be a radically ground cam for this--


Ala Ducati--if the Duc had four cylinders.......

I don't think you could grind a cam THAT radically, as 2 lifters are riding on each lobe, one for each side of the engine. By design it has to be 180 degrees apart.

yes, but what if you welded up the two motors to be in the 90 degree position???

That is what I was thinking....

Trying to make a desmo valve system work without overhead cams would be ... probably impossible.

Once you've adjusted the valves on one, you won't ever try to convert something TO Desmo.

And there is a 4 cylinder Ducati, the DesmoDeci (vs DesmoDue)

Very nice pic of a Duc!!! I am spanking to it right now----always wanted one--900SS super light was the one that I lusted for--

I did not mean use the valvetrain--no--I was thinking of the inherent smoothness of a 90 crank--but because the cylinders are still 180 deg. the extra two throws would balance out like it was a 90 deg. crank in a 90 deg. cylinder layout-

And yes-those cam lobes would have to be whittled down in width quite a bit--but it could be done......

Nathan, I second that! MotoGP sould be great this year!

Duck, good point!!! Even though the Desmo is an awsome working system, the adjustments that are required to keep them up to spec are extreamly time consuming.

Its like the early 356 Carrera 4 cam motors... book time is 40hours!! I'm not kidding. They figured it would take you 3 times to get it right... Its all bevel gears and shafts, first you adjust the exhaust cam, then the intake cam. Pro's know how to compensate so that once they tighten the intake cam gear, the exhaust doesn't move. The good thing is once the adjustment is done, you never have to adjust it again solong as nothing breaks!

I was out at Chuck Beck house (he lives outside Atlanta now) last fall and the first thing I saw was a 4 cylinder 911 engine he built. I can't remember when he did it but I would say early 80's. I also have an old HOT VW's Mag from the "energy crisis" days where they built a 2 cylinder Ty1. I think there is an aero ty 1 engine that runs 2 cylinders on the same side.
