CONSTRUCTION OF AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE

CONSTRUCTION OF AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Identify the stationary and moving parts, the operating principles and their functions, and the basic testing procedures used in constructing an internal combustion engine. Describe the techniques used in reconditioning and adjusting valves and timing gear installation.

 

In the preceding lessons, you learned how the internal combustion engine operates. You also learned how the basic moving parts of an engine move in a timed relationship to one another during engine operation.

These lessons provide information on the many stationary and moving parts of an internal combustion engine. As an auto mechanic, you should be concerned with how these parts are made, what materials they are made of, and their relationship to one another for smooth and efficient operation of an internal combustion engine.

The information provided is to help you diagnose malfunctions of an engine and ways to correct them. Since the gasoline and diesel engines used in construction equipment of today are basically the same internally, the majority of information provided applies to both.
