Edit: I know Im spinning it backwards. There was an arrow that misled me when I took this video. This is an example of a 4 stroke(Otto Cycle) Heat Engine.
Visible is the cylinder with surrounding water passages(cooling system routed to radiator)
Valve train, which is control by the two cams attached to the smaller gears, and the crankshaft which is attached to the larger gear and is connected to the piston through connecting rods.
If one pauses at the end, the Otto Cycle chalkboard work is visible, where the isothermal and adiabatic processes required to produce the net work are expressed.
(Taken from Giancoli Ch. 20) The cycle is as such:
a)the gasoline-air mixture flows into the cylinder as the piston moves down.
b)the piston moves upward and compresses the gas
c)the brief instant when firing of the spark plugignites the highly compressed gasoline-air mixture raising it to a high temperature
d)the gases, now at high temperature expand against the piston(in the power stroke)
e) the burned gases are pushed out to the Exhaust pipe; when the piston reaches to the top, the Exhaust valve opens, and the whole cycle repeats.
a, b, d, and e are the four strokes of the cycle.
There is a minor discrepancy in the mechanics of this particular demo; it's cranked the wrong way.
Early Run of My V-Twin model Engine by Terry Mayhugh
Just completed ... mostly machined on a Tormach PCNC mill with
SolidWorks/SprutCam CAD/CAM plus manual lathe work on the cast iron
cylinders, pistons, rings and crank. One inch bore with 1.25 inch stroke.
Built entirely from material from a local scrap yard. Plan set available
from Jerry-Howell.com. Mayhugh engine V-twin vtwin tormach howell
How an engine works - comprehensive tutorial animation featuring Toyota engine technologies
Animation I created for Toyota that gives an overview of the components of
an engine, how an engine works and some of Toyota's valve, intake and Exhaust technologies. I wrote, directed
and storyboarded the video. It was for training purposes only.

Lego 5 Speed Manual Transmission
I built this lego transmission only from looking at the transmission searme
had built and made a video of. Its cool to see but it doesn't work in real
conditions like in a vehicle, I've tried.
