Carb Getting Blown Out Of Engine - OS TZ
Here's one I expereinced at racing today.
I ran my car for a tank this morning to check its setup, and it went weird tuning wise then stopped, when I inspected the car the Carb had come entirely out of the Engine!!!!
I thought this was odd as I had gone over the car the night before. So I put the carb back in, tightened up the pinch bolt, started it up and bench idled it, all seemed fine, temp good, tune good, carb tight and not moving. I put it on the track, got down the end of the straight (ie full RPM) and the carb come out again!!! I took the engine out, checked it, checked the carb, locktited the pinch bolt, put it all back in, 1st lap, end of straight, same damn thing!!
Has anyone ever heard of this before? Anything I should look for that might have broken? It sounds to me like the crankcase might have a hairline crack which is expanding under heat and the engine under full load is pushing the carb out!
Any help would be appreciated.
