“How Engines Work” Diagrams

Here are some great diagrams that Brent recently found illustrating the mechanics of the main engine types:

4 stroke engine

4 stroke with explanation

2 stroke engine

Multiple cylinder 4 stroke

Brent has been recently working towards getting certified in motorcycle repair and so has been picking up some pretty interesting stuff. After my trip around the U.S. and thoughts towards future plans, I’ve also started to become interested in learning a little more about how the machine that’s taken me so far actually works. So this was Brent’s most recent response to my piquing interest.

    It is quite easy to find .gifs of various mechanical parts by searching on google. If you have difficulty finding any just let me know and I can track it down! If I come across any of particular interest I’ll be sure to post them here!
