Video homenaje para Jorge Pironio – 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS – arranque en frio

Aca un video en español en homenaje mi tio Jorge Jorge Pironio, quien me enseño todo lo que se de mecanica.

Puesta en marcha en frio de un Camaro SS 1968 y una pasada rapida por un Tesla Model 3 Dual Motor. Nada que ver uno con el otro, pero vale la pena mostrar el contraste.

Puesta en marcha minuto 7:17.

La calidad de sonido no es la mejor (con auriculares se aprecia mejor), pero espero que se aprecie un poco la historia de este auto.

Decoding Eddy Merckx frames

Eddy Merckx Bottom Bracket. Corsa (C) size 50 (0) early 1996 (G). EMC employee “H”.

The symbols to the left of the BB cover (“technical”) are divided into 3 categories:

  • A letter denoting the EMC employee responsible for the final “smoothing” of the frame before painting (A,B,F,G,M,P,T,D,Y,L,N,J,S,H,K, unusual 0, ^)
  • A number indicating the length of the seat tube in cm measured c-c (for example 2 means 52 or 62, 8 means 48 or 58)
  • Letters indicating tube type, geometry or model:
    R = Reynolds 531
    C = Corsa
    X = SLX/SPX
    CX = Criterium
    TT = TSX
    M = Strada (Matrix/Cromor)
    TTB = Century TSX
    XB = Corsa Extra SLX century geo
    WW = Strada since 1992

The symbols to the right of the BB cover (“statistical”) form a serial number, it consists of a letter and a set of digits. A letter means another series of frames, a number is another frame in the series (001-9999). The exception is the production from 1980 (there is no letter, and in the prototypes even digits, and there are just over 1000 of them).
E – 1981-1984
Z – 1984-1986
A – 1986-1988
B – 1988-1990
C – 1990-1991

F – 1994-1995
G – 1996-1998
H – 1998-2000
J – 2001-2002
K – 2002-2004
L – 2004-2006
P – 2006-2008

In addition to such markings, there are unusual ones:
CS – Capri Sonne
ED – Europ Decor
W – Winning ?
KE – Kelme
