Subaru-Robin EX35D

Subaru-Robin EX35D engineThe Robin-Subaru EX35D is a 404 cc, (24.6 cu·in) natural aspirated single-cylinder four-stroke air-cooled internal combustion small gasoline engine with a horizontal shaft, manufactured by the Industrial Products division of Subaru Corporation for general-purpose applications.

The EX35D engine has a single-cylinder, heavy-duty chain-driven overhead camshaft (OHC) system, a sophisticated mechanical compression release system, and a recoil or electric starter. This engine used a horizontal draft, float type carburetor, transistorized magneto ignition system, splash type lubricating system, and forced-air cooling system. The EX35D is equipped with a 7.0 L (1.85 US. gal. 1.54 Imp. gal.) fuel tank.

The EX35D engine produced 10.1 PS (7.4 kW; 9.9 HP) at 3,600 rpm of maximum net power and 12.0 PS (8.8 kW; 11.8 HP) at 3,600 rpm of maximum gross power. Peak torque is 26.0 N·m (2.7 kg·m, 19.2 ft·lb) at 2,400 rpm.

Cylinder Block and Head

Cylinder bore and piston stroke are 89.0 mm (3.5 in) and 65.0 mm (2.56 in), respectively. Compression ratio rating is 8.3:1. The engine uses cast iron cylinder liner and large ball bearings on both ends of crankshaft for maximum stability under demanding loads. The piston is equipped with single oil and single compression rings.
