I want to make a project of combining two Honda GL200 by connecting the crankshafts using a chain and putting the main engine (the engine that has the transmission thingy) behind the slave engine (the engine that doesn't have the transmission thingy)
It'll look like this :
The purpose of this project is to make a dynamic sounding engine. You can adjust the engine sound to your liking, by adjusting the chain without having to change the whole engine system (valves, timing, shafts).
- 180 degree Ninja 250 Sound
- 360 degree CB200 Sound
- 270 degree V Twin Sound
The question is,
- Is it reliable?
- What is the pros, cons, by using this way, instead of welding the crankcase?
- Are there any successful project out there, chaining two 4 stroke single cylinder engines?
- Will the engine sound the same as a 2 cylinder engine, or will it just sounds like 2 engines running differently? I mean, because of the chain's tension, will the shafts sync as good as welding them?
