Cylinder Head Layout Design
Several of the decisions discussed in previous chapters determine the starting point for cylinder head layout. In Chap. 6 the trade-offs determining cylinder bore were presented, as were those that determined the number of cylinders making up a bank. In Chap. 8 the variables that go into determining cylinder spacing were discussed, and the number and approximate placement of the head bolts was introduced. The question of camshaft placement was also introduced in Chap. 8, and will be taken up again later in this chapter.
