CC TO HP conversion table?

The formula that works best only applies to the small newer normally aspirated (carburetor) 4 cycle engines. The ratios change slightly worse with altitude and slightly better with fuel injection and tuning. Most American mowers and the newer 4 cycle outboard motors fit into one of these two formulas: Typical new carbureted engine well tuned: 1 x HP per each 25 cc Fuel injected: 1 x HP per each 22 cc Notes: Most engines are tuned down to a lower HP for better engine life. It is common for the same cc engine to be built in 3 different HP versions with the highest rated being the maximized HP per cc version. That is how you see price and HP changes on the same cc engine made by the same company. Some of the newest (2008 and newer) engines from Japan perform slightly better. A typical 150cc motor should equate to between 3.5 - 6 HP+ depending on tuning with 5 HP being the adv. The actual formula plots as a curve and not linear but does not apply to Max/High Performance engines like motorcycles.

How many kg is 1 Newton?

User Avatar
Grams and kilograms are not weights and they're not forces. They're masses. On Earth, 1kg of mass weighs 9.81 newtons. On Earth, 1 newton is the weight of about 0.102 kilogram of mass. On the moon, the same 1 kg of mass weighs 1.62 newtons. On the moon, 1 newton is the weight of about 0.616 kg of mass. On Mars, the same 1 kg of mass weighs 3.722 newtons. On Mars, 1 newton is the weight of about 0.269 kg of mass. 1 N = 0.102 Kg. OR 1N=0.224 pound (Imperial) 1 KN (KiloNewton) = 102 Kg.

Where is the oil pressure and water temp sensor on the 454 engine?

User Avatar
On my '76 454, the oil pressure gauge hooks to a female threaded hole located directly above the oil filter. an oil line runs from here directly to your oil pressure gage. The coolant temp sensor is located in the middle of the cylinder head usually on the drivers side.

One cubic centimeter equals how many cubic millimeters?

User Avatar
There are 1,000 cubic millimeters in one cubic centimeter. 1 cubic centimetre = 1 centimetre x 1 centimetre x 1 centimetre = 10 millimetre x 10 millimetre x 10 millimetre = 1,000 cubic millimetres.
