Fifty percent less pedal force I n most of the models of the 1950s and 1960s, Mercedes-Benz provided a power brake booster manufactured by ATE. The booster does not pro- vide additional braking capacity, a common misconception, but rather reduces the pedal force required for braking. The power brake is a vacuum-assisted hydraulic component using the pressure difference between engine intake manifold vacuum and atmospheric pressure for its operation. The power unit increases the pressure created physically in the brake master cylinder so that the same braking effect can be produced with less pedal effort. With a brake booster installed, the pedal force required for braking is reduced by 50 percent. The ATE T50 Brake Booster uses vacuum to “boost” the hydraulic brakeline pressure. The booster contains a hydraulic cylinder, a large vacuum piston that presses against the hydraulic cylinder, and a control circuit that regulates the vacuum flow based on brake-line pressures. This technology had been well proven since the early 1900s, and the T50 has been exceptionally reliable over many years of use. The Booster in action The power booster is a very simple design requiring only a vacuum source to operate. In gasoline-engine cars, the engine provides a vacuum suitable for the boosters. Because diesel engines do not produce a vacuum, dieselpowered vehicles must use a separate vacuum pump. A vacuum hose from the intake manifold on the engine pulls air from both sides of the diaphragm when the engine is running. When the driver steps on the brake pedal, the input rod assembly in the booster moves forward, blocking off the vacuum port to the backside of the diaphragm and opening an atmospheric port that allows air to enter the back chamber. Suddenly, the diaphragm has vacuum pulling against one side and air pressure pushing on the other. The result is forward pressure that assists in pushing the input rod, which in turn pushes the piston in the master cylinder. The amount of power assist that’s provided by the booster depends on the size of the diaphragm and the amount of intake manifold vacuum produced by the engine. A larger diaphragm will increase the boost.

Before installing the driveshaft, be sure the motor and Geareducer are on level bases and that their shafts are in reasonable alignment. Note match numbers on the driveshaft flanges and remove the yokes. Coat the motor shaft and Geareducer shaft with “Thred-Gard” (Crane Packing Co.) or similar lubricant. Place the key halfway in motor and Geareducer shafts, then install yokes as shown in Figure 4. Use a rubber mallet or wood block when tapping yokes to prevent damage. Tighten each yoke set screw against key. Align match numbers on tube and yoke flanges and bolt the tube and flange assembly to the Geareducer yoke while supporting the motor end of the tube and flange assembly. Progressively tighten bolts to 60 ft·lbƒ (82 N·m) torque. Slide the motor so that motor yoke can be bolted to the tube and flange assembly without pushing or pulling on the bushings. Align match numbers and bolt the motor yoke to the tube and flange assembly. Progressively tighten bolts to 60 ft·lbƒ (82 N·m) torque. The distance between tube and yoke flanges should be as shown in Figure 4.

About the CIES Football Observatory The CIES Football Observatory is a unique project initiated in 2005 by Drs Raffaele Poli and Loïc Ravenel under the name of the Professional Football Players Observatory (PFPO). Since 2011 it is one of the cornerstones of the broader CIES Sports Observatory project, dedicated to the statistical analysis of sport in all its diversity. Two annual reports are published for football. In January, the Demographic Study presents an in-depth analysis of club composition and player characteristics in 31 top division leagues of UEFA member countries. In June, the Annual Review analyses clubs and players in the big-5 European leagues from a demographic, economic and pitch performance perspective. Methodological rigour coupled with a deep knowledge of football guarantee high quality analyses at competitive rates.

The latest 3.4 litre version of the Powertec RP V8 Doubled up Tom Sharp investigates a cost effective V8 racing engine on behalf of Powertec. It essentially consists of a pair of Hayabusa engines, arranged at a 72° bank angle, driving a common crankshaft and mounted to a dedicated dry-sumped crankcase. The result is a P keenly priced V8 engine that is very light, powerful and reliable. The having initially a 2.6 litre displacement, it had been commissioned by been joined by three other varieties (see Table 1), which demonstrates Radical Motorsport for installation into that company’s SR8 sports-racing just how much flexibility is in the base package. The numbers tell the car. Radical specialised in motorcycle-engined sports-racers and was story of commercial success well enough. Powertec have to date built keen to augment its popular four cylinder machines with a V8. a total of 110 RP engines (including 75 RPAs and 25 RPBs); volumes owertec Engineering’s innovative, Suzuki Hayabusa-based engine is now owned, manufactured and built by Powertec Engineering RP V8 engine was introduced in the UK at the Autosport from its base in Peterborough, England. Run by former motorbike International show back in January 2005 since when it engine tuning specialist Ted Hurrell, Powertec employs 14 people in a has been a resounding technical and commercial success. 3000 sq ft factory. Founded upon a pair of 1.3 litre Hayabusa I4 motorcycle engines and The RP was designed and detailed by Steve Prentice of SPD Ltd 68 The original 2.6 litre RPA and the subsequent 2.8 litre RPB have now which any bespoke engine manufacturers would be proud of. However, DOSSIER : POWERTEC RP V8 ENGINE RP V8 CAD image governs UK motorsport – they banned it on the grounds of it not being derived from a passenger-carrying vehicle. Horne’s solicitors eventually ensured the car received its required log book but the MSA made it clear that the RP was not welcome in rallying. Powertec’s original product portfolio plan had included a 2.0 litre ‘screamer’ version, but as Ted Hurrell explains customer demand drove the capacity in the opposite direction. “The screamer was originally conceived for use in 2.0 litre hillclimb and VdeV sportscar racing, however the VdeV regulations quickly changed to insist upon four cylinder car engines and our hillclimb customers went in the direction of the unlimited classes, which means increasing swept volume as far as possible to maximize torque. So only one 2.0 litre engine was built before that variant was then unfortunately the RP series only represents 20% of Powertec’s business; the majority revolves around building and tuning the Suzuki Hayabusa four cylinder shelved. “Those two examples, of the 2.5 and 2.0 litre engines go to engines for markets such as motorbike racing, low volume production...

Follow installation instructions for extended frame sliders. (See page 1) Note: Do not attach delron tips or tighten extended frame sliders until all components are installed. 2. Place the cage loop inside short telescoping tubes on sliders (See fig. G), push the ¼”-20 x 1 ½” bolts through the bolt holes in the telescoping tubes from the outside and start the ¼”-20 lock nuts. Do not tighten lock nuts at this time. 3. Install the left side strut using the all thread rod, flange bushings and hex nuts provided. Slide the following components over one end of the all thread rod in this order: flange bushing marked with "L", side strut marked with "L" and one M10-1.5 hex nut. (See fig A) Slide the all thread rod through the swing arm bolt on the left side of the motorcycle. (make sure the flange bushing slides into the swing arm bolt) On the right side of the motorcycle slide the following components over the all thread rod in this order: flange bushing marked "R", side strut marked "R" and M10-1.5 hex nut. (you may need to hold the left side to ensure it stays in place) 4. Push the bottom of the cage loop towards the rear of the motorcycle while pulling the bottom of the left side strut towards the front until the bolt hole on the side strut meets the threaded hole on the tab welded to the cage loop. Attach the side strut to the outside of the tab on the cage loop with a 3/8”-24 x ¾” bolt. (See fig J) Do not tighten the bolt at this time. Repeat for other side. 5. Once all components are attached tighten all bolts and nuts. Be sure to torque all engine mount bolts to factory specifications. Torque the hex nuts on the all thread stud to 12ft lbs. We recommend using "blue" loctite on the all thread stud to ensure the hex nuts do not vibrate loose. 6. Install delron tips with ¼”-20 x 2” bolts and ¼”-20 lock nuts.
