Slow Motion study

Post by TahoeSteam » Thu Apr 29, 2021 4:46 pm

Playing with the slow motion filming feature on my phone's camera. Was trying to find where the clunks were coming from by looking for paradoxical motion...

Notice the splashing of the oil in the cups for the wrist pins. My dad went with these deeper cups because the oil was splashing out of ones we had on there originally. This is at about 220 RPM. 6" stroke.
