    Default Dumb Question About S.P.O.R.T. F1 Motor Rules

    The last I heard, you had to use Mercury pistons. Are the engine rules posted anywhere?

    I never heard that rule, it was always the weisco, now they allow anything other than Merc Hi Perf top pinned pistons per John Schubert. I don't know where anything is posted for this, I called John

    Here you go. Right from APBA rules FORMULA 1 SPORT TECHNICAL STANDARDS
    Engine block is a 5-petal front half 2.5 200HP non o-ring head produced from 1992 to 1999. The intent is to treat this motor on the
    same basis as the SST 120 motor; if you canít change the 120 motor you canít change this motor. It is also designed so that you
    can put all SST 120 components (dressing) on the 2.5 short block. NO O-RING HEAD MOTORS.
    1) Please note exhaust port passage to the exhaust chest dimensions are as follows: 1.03 inches (width) 2.50 inches
    (height) max. No grinding or blending in the exhaust chest area.
    2) Must use top-guided rodsóeither stock fishing motor rods or Mercury Racing 280 rod or F1 rod. No grinding
    with the exception of shot peening. It is recommended if you use fishing motor rod that you use rod bolt #10-848475
    3) Any production non-racing top guided 2.5 piston. No grinding or modifying. The Wiseco piston #3137 is the base to
    which all other pistons will be compared.
    4) Any Mercury production crank is allowed, with the exception of a Mercury crank with heavy metal welded into it (no
    late model race cranks). No grinding or modifying.
    5) The replacement sleeve is the Advanced Sleeve #1041.
    6) The V-6 crankshaft centerline to crankcase/intake manifold surface to be 4.42 +/- 0.01 inches.
    7) Intake manifold thickness is 2.0000 +/- .015 (between carb and reed block).
    8) Cylinders bored to +0.030 inches oversized must have port heights that measure .015 lower than standard bore.
    9) Reed blocks are 10 port = 1.10x.056 or 8 port = 1.05x0.63 reed blocks are allowed with no modifications or grinding.
    10) Any reed material is accepted.
    11) The only carbs are WH-39, WH-41, or WH-46 carbs with slosh tubes and baffles.
    12) Cylinder Head is part #18787 17 Champ 2.5L head 36.5c.
    13) Any unaltered Head Gasket is allowed. Part #27-814658 1 is recommended.
    14) The SSM #6 and #4 are allowable gearcases and will be inspected per the OPC homologation sheets.
    15) No grinding or blending on the blocks! No blending ports or passages! If the factory didnít touch it, it canít be altered.
    16) Must use stock SST 120 tuner.
    17) Tuner can be run dry.

    I cut off some of the bottom of the page but it does say Wisecos as the piston to be based on.

    The old specs did say based on the wiseco piston. There are no specs in the new rule book. Which is a problem, Bills powerhead could be illegal tomorrow.

    So I take it that the " E " block is the late model 200 that flows better?
