Hi,

Does anybody have an exploded diagram of the DB601?

Or even better, just the connecting rod.

Or even better still, just the connecting rod bearing.

Its a bit of a weird request I know, but it would be helpful. Alternatively if anyone can point me in the direction of Daimler Benz part numbers for the engines made around the time of the Bf 110 C4, that would be very helpful too.

Heres hoping...

Regards.

Hi,

@ Luftluuver, Now there is an interesting little treasure trove of a website, thanks for that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

@ KIMURA, a cutaway 601 would be most helpful if you have one, thanks.

Regards.

Scroll down and you will find a pic of a 601 crankshaft with a few other bits, http://www.enginehistory.org/usaf_dev_hx_fa_background.htm

You can by a large cut-away drawing (30" x 42" sheets) of the 601 here, http://www.aviationshoppe.com/catalog/daimler-benz-db601-p-32.html

Many thanks Kimura, those pics show exactly what I was looking for.

A mate found what he thought was a bit of a 110, but wasnt sure. We decided it had to be a bearing of some description, and the best guess was that it was off the piston/con rod assembly. That diagram shows it neatly.

Thanks for the scans. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
