Ok. I suck at math. Algebra kicked my ass. And I think it's because they generalized when they said "you'll use this an infinite number of ways, places."
Fine. But something more grounded, say, internal combustion engines would give me a carrot and a framework to work within. Feckers.
Ennywho, starting with basics: How would one figure the correct cfm carb to use on a 350 cid engine? I said basic, didn't I ?
So, 1 cubic foot of space equals 1,728 cubic inches.
and if a 350 at 1000 rpm equals 350,000 ci of air,
350,000 divided by 1,728 equals 202.546 cfm necessary for it to breathe, yes?
I know squeeze factors in at some point particularly if 5000 rpm is the new number. 1,750,000 ci converted to cf is 1,012.731.
I'd be wheezing myself if I needed that much air. And this is where I go
One general question: What does "oversquare" mean ?
My guess is either the stroke is longer than the bore or the opposite.
whereas a "square" engine would be 75mm stroke * 75mm bore. yah ?
I intend this to be a place for all to bump up their figuring skills.
Thanks in advance for anyones help.
