Here is one maybe some of you have never seen before. I bought a Joyner sand rail made in China and converted it to an off road car. I now race it in a off road racing series. The sand rail came with a 1600 cc MPI engine made by a company called Chery. When I started looking around for performance parts for this engine….NOTHING. Couldn’t find a single parts store or anyone online who even heard of this engine. Team Joyner USA who sells the cars here in Phoenix stated they don’t make performance parts for that engine expect for a header. They did they me I could put a performance clutch in the car and to order a racing clutch for a 1997 VW Jetta. Well that got the wheels turning in my little brain and I figured that if a V dub clutch would work in my car it must be a VW motor. Well after 100’s of hours of searching V dub motors and researching every 4 cylinder V dub motor I could find and 20 + phone calls to the Chinese manufacture I finally found a person in China at Chery that spoke broken English. Just so happens he was an engine engineer. PERFECT…. JACKPOT! So I ask the gentlemen what year V dub motor is your 1600 cc motor copied after? He said VW,,,,,no no no, we went to the Ford CVH engine production plant in Britain and that is how our engines are made, same way CVH engines are made. (Took me 30 minutes of this Chinese gentlemen repeating himself for me to get all that) WOW!!! I couldn’t believe it was a dup of a Ford CVH engine. Of course I had never heard of these engines from Ford so here we go again. 100’s of hours of searching & researching the CVH engine. Found a lot of info. I found a lot of info on this site. Lots of knowledge here about the Ford CVH. So I tore the Chery engine down to see if it really did model a CVH engine. Here is what I found: (I’m going off of photos I found on line of the CVH, SPI) I’m confused on the heads, combustion chamber look just like late SPI cylinder heads but the intake side of the head don’t look nothing like the SPI head. I was kinda hoping for the hemi head. One difference I noticed is all the 2.0 SPI I’ve seen photos of, the valve cover bolts in the middle and this one bolts on from the sides. Are all 2.0 SPI valve covers like that? The intake valves are 44.45 mm and exhaust valves are 38.1 mm It’s not a roller cam, lifters are 1 7/8” long and 7/8” wide Bore is 79.94 mm Stroke is 79.52 mm, the pistons also look like SPI pistons. Engine block looks some what close to a CVH block with a few differences. It is stamped 1999 on the intake side of the block so I assume it was made in 1999.. So my plan is to go buy a gasket set for a 2.0 and see if everything will line up with my head. I can't post any photos, they are all on my computer and not a public site. If you PM me I can send them to you or if someone can explain to me how to post them here I will. Any thoughts or suggestions????????
