Unformatted text preview: near the big end (or crank end) is taken H2 = 1.1H to 1.25H. 2. Dimensions of the crankpin at the big end and the piston pin at the small end Since the dimensions of the crankpin at the big end and the piston pin (also known as gudgeon pin or wrist pin) at the small end are limited, therefore, fairly high bearing pressures have to be allowed at the bearings of these two pins. The crankpin at the big end has removable precision bearing shells of brass or bronze or steel with a thin lining (1 mm or less) of bearing metal (such as tin, lead, babbit, copper, lead) on the inner surface of the shell. The allowable bearing pressure on the crankpin depends upon many factors such as material of the bearing, viscosity of the lubricating oil, method of lubrication and the space limitations.The value of bearing pressure may be taken as 7 N/mm 2 t o 12.5 N/mm 2 depending upon the material and Engine of a motorcyle. method of lubrication used. The piston pin bearing is usually a phosphor bronze bush of about 3 mm thickness and the allowable bearing pressure may be...
