Abstract

A row of cylinders of an air-cooled multi-cylinder internal combustion engine is flowed through with cooling air transversely to the cylinders. A one-piece deflecting part made of light metal or plastic and covering all cylinders is arranged as an air guiding device on the cooling air outlet side.

Description

  • The invention relates to an air-cooled multi-cylinder internal combustion engine according to the preamble of claim 1.
  • Such an internal combustion engine is known from DE-AS 1 205 772. The cooling air flowing in transverse to the cylinders flows along the broad side of the transverse ribs and is deflected on the rear cooling air outflow side of the cylinders by columns which are designed to be streamlined. In addition, baffles are attached to the pillars, the type of fastening of which is not specified. Such baffles are usually screwed on and cause undesirable noise emissions.
  • The object of the invention is to provide an air guiding device which can be produced and assembled at low cost and does not constitute an additional source of noise.
  • To achieve this object, a one-piece deflecting part, which covers all cylinders on their cooling air outflow side, serves as an air guiding device, which can be cast from light metal or injection molded from plastic. It is designed with double walls to increase its rigidity. This deflecting part is screwed to either the crankcase or the cylinders. In the latter case, it can also be used as a knocking bridge by forwarding the knocking noises of all cylinders connected to it to a knocking sensor screwed to it in the center. If the deflecting part is made of a material that has the same coefficient of thermal expansion as the crankcase, it follows its longitudinal expansion when the temperature changes, so that the deflecting part can be rigidly screwed to the cylinders fastened in the crankcase. Otherwise, a compensating screw connection can also be selected, which enables different lengths of the deflection part and crankcase.
  • Two embodiments of the invention are shown in the drawing and are explained below.
  • It shows
    • 1 cross section through a row of cylinders of an air-cooled six-cylinder internal combustion engine,
    • 2 shows a longitudinal section through a cylinder with a deflecting part along the line II-II of FIG. 1,
    • 3 side view of a deflection part with knock sensor,
    • 4 cross section through a row of cylinders according to line IV-IV of FIG. 3,
    • Fig. 5 section through a line VV of Fig. 2 with a longitudinal section through a cylinder.
  • According to FIGS. 1 and 2, three individually cast cylinders 2, 3, 4 are arranged in a row next to one another in a crankcase 1 of an internal combustion engine and together with the cylinder heads 6 with the crankcase 1 placed on the cylinders 2, 3, 4 by means of expansion screws 5 screwed. The cylinders 2, 3, 4 are provided all around with ribs 7 extending transversely to their longitudinal axis, between which cooling air is blown through. Arranged on the cooling air outflow side of the cylinders is a deflecting part 8 covering all cylinders, which is cast in one piece from light metal and is attached to the crankcase at its three fastening eyes 9 located centrally to the cylinders 2, 3, 4 and screwed to it. To increase the rigidity, the deflection part 8 is double-walled. The fastening eyes 9 are located in the center of the air outlet openings 10, which are arranged in the area of the center planes 2 ', 3', 4 'of the cylinders, run radially to the cylinders and extend over their entire height. In the area between the cylinders 2, 3 and 3, 4, the deflecting part has V-shaped bends 11 pointing towards the cylinders 2, 3, 4, at which the cooling air flowing between the cylinders is deflected by 90 ° and led to the air outlet openings 10 becomes.
  • 3, 4 and 5, the deflecting part 12 differs from the deflecting part 9 in that it has radially extending eyes 13 with which it is placed on corresponding eyes 14 of the cylinders 2, 3, 4 and screwed to them.
  • This deflecting part 12 also serves as a knocking bridge in addition to the air guidance, in that it forwards the noise coming from the cylinders caused by knocking combustion to a knocking sensor 15 which is screwed onto the deflecting part 12 approximately in the middle of its longitudinal extent.
