Hi, I'm looking to fitting a M52B28 in a kit car.
Space is tight so I've been looking for an engine cross-section (I guess a M50/52/54 would work) with key dimensions so I can measure up properly.
Can't remember where but I have only been able to find the following:

  • Front to back of engine = 736.6mm
  • Back of engine to back of gearbox = 508 mm
  • Width of engine - 18"ish or 22"ish with sump poking out = 558.8mm
  • Front of engine to back of gearbox = 1244.6mm
  • Height of engine when the mounts are level. (In the tilted position it would be run at) = 635mm


Whilst a good start it leaves me guessing on things like ancillaries, headers, manifolds etc hence why a cross-section would be really helpful.
I'm also 10mm too long potentially, however, if the measurements above include the fan then it will be fine. So again, a long section with key dims would be useful.

Thanks

Richard

Thanks dailydobby.
I did stumble on that website, but with not understanding what the dims meant I moved on.
Assuming the height is correct in the values I found and the aspect ratio of this image below are correct, then these dims I've added (in red) may be of use for someone. I think this is an M52 flavour.

If anyone can measure any easy to reach parts of the engine then I can rescale and update the image.
