The design and development of a 54 cu in. single overhead camshaft aluminum engine and transaxle for a rear engined vehicle is described. Weight consideration and required performance resulted in the adaption of a light alloy construction. A brief description of the low pressure die casting method is included, and production advantages of both low and high pressure die casting are covered. Constructional considerations in achieving a compact unit are highlighted.
