forms the framework for the engine cylinders and reciprocating assembly.

Creates combustion Chambers
The way engine cylinders are arranged - for example, V, flat, or in-line.
An engine design in which the cylinders are positioned in a single, straight line.
4 cylinders on each side, 8 total, inclined on both sides to make the shape of a V.
known for power and smoothness because it has eight evenly spaced explosions instead of one big one.
What happens to gas when it get's compressed?
THE 4 strokes of an Engine ARE:
intake, compression, power, exhaust
The part of the piston above the rings
The part of the piston below the rings and the bosses.
Circular rings that fit the piston grooves and exert tensions on the cylinder wall. Piston rings prevent blowby of exhaust gases into the crankcase and leakage of oil into the combustion chamber.
Oil should not be
In the combustion chamber
turns in circles to make the combustion happen; turns clockwise direction in a circular cycle
moves piston up and down in the cylinder
Balances out piston movement. Manages when pistons moves up and down.
main journal bearing
central area of a crankshaft where the main bearings support the shaft in the block.
How do we remove temperature from the combustion chamber?
Radiator and radiator fluid (antifreeze) through the use of coolant passages
For every cylinder there is a freeze plug
what is a freeze plug?
It is a cap which acts similar to a cork.
forms the reservoir for the engine oil at the bottom of the engine.
Holds the oil.
An engine-driven pump that delivers oil to the engine's moving parts.
Thin metal or plastic cover over the top of the cylinder head.
It prevents oil leakage and allows us to add new oil.
passages throughout the engine that deliver oil to various engine components
a shaft with one or more cams attached to it, especially one operating the valves in an internal combustion engine.
