Redline is 5000 rpms.
HO Racing calculator it can be pushed to just 4000 feet per minute piston speeds at 5400 rpms.

Don't want to spin an engine high revs with over 4.21 or 4.25 stroke
Without a Billet Steel crankshaft.
4.500 & 5.0 inch stroke cranks done in 455.
Builds 505 or 535.
End up shitboxes for racing.

Caddie 541 do not spin it high again.
5200 only.
Now you're catching on, grasshopper.

You are getting warm. But it is more than a billet crank for long strokes and high rpm's. It is not just that the piston can achieve 4000 fpm but it is because it comes to a complete stop briefly at TDC and again at BDC. There is an incredible jerk that takes place as the piston and rod reverse their direction. Especially at extreme RPM. And then there is the friction and heat on the cylinder bore.



You need to think past spinning and contemplate reciprocating. Or you will never be able to build an engine, Engine Builder. Because the things that spin in an engine are fed by pressurized oil and on their own could spin to infinity for infinity. But the things in an engine that reciprocate are all subject to friction and jerk, Jerk.

The best recipe that I've found for Jerk seasoning.


1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 to 3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons dried thyme
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Works really well on chicken. The only friction is caused by the rubbing of the blend into the chicken breasts. Slower will mean less friction. If you rub it faster the friction will create more heat.

It has to do with crankshaft deflection and built up harmonics.
Grows expodential.

One sure test.
Build it.
Buzz it high if you dare.

Stays together or not.

Cadillac the 500 & 541 Stroker will not.

That record was broken:

363.78 kg (802.0 lb) 1999 Tim Isaac is the first man to bench press over 800 lb* with a lift of 802 lb (363.78 kg) on July 24 in Phoenix, Arizona.[30][31]


Then taht record was broken a few years later.


By the way.

How did this cold weather thread get converted to engine specs and Jerk Chicken.

I love Jerk chicken!

Been to Jamaica many times

Hey Matt, feel free to use the Jerk recipe, It'll make you think you've just landed in Jamaica and they sky cap is trying to hand you a bag of ganga. The recipe came from one member using the word "Jerk" to describe another mamber. I couldn't believe that it meant a fool or something so I assumed he was talking about the recipe for Jerk.

I make jerk chicken and pork a lot during the summer.

When in Jamaica I visted quite a few pits and even went inside to the fire pit and watched/asked questions.

I have actually been to Jamaica over 30 times.

My favorite authentic jerk sauce is from this company:

Now Brian, it looks like you missed leg day.......and arm day......and chest day. Put a thousand pounds on those legs and they'd be at your shoulders and you's be about 3' tall.
