What is a zero tolerance engine?
Also known as a interference engine, A zero tolerance engine is an engine that would damage the valves and likely the pistons without correct timing. This would occur because the valves and piston have the ability to come into contact with each other. With correct timing, this is not an issue because the piston travels away from the valves as they travel into the cylinder. When timing is lost, the piston could travel toward the valves as the valves enter the cylinder, resulting in severe damage to both. This is not an issue in a non interference engine because the piston and valves will not contact each other if timing was lost.

How did the steam engine propel?
The mechnical idea behind a Steam engine is very simple: Take a Tea Pot and seal it up. Conect an outlet pipe to a Cylinder with a Piston in it. Boil the water The steam will propel the Piston down the cylinder Conect the piston to a crank, say on a Locomotive wheel (Very Small Locomotive if we are using my tea pot) Create a valve system that will allow thew steam in when the piston is ready to push the crank and allow the steam out when the piston is ready to travel back to the start point.

How does a 4 cycle engine work?
The 4 cycles represent the strokes that the piston makes as it travels up and down the engine cylinder. Generally considered to be the first cycle (stroke) is the downward stroke commonly referred to as the intake stroke because during that stroke it pulls a mixture of air and fuel into the cylinder. The following (2nd) stroke is called the compression stroke because it compresses the air and fuel mixture as the piston travels upward. As the piston approaches the top of it's travel on the compression stroke, the spark plug (in gasoline fired engine) is energized by an electrical charge causing a spark to jump across the 'gap' of the spark plug. This spark ignites the fuel and air mixture. The resultant 'explosion' then drives the piston downward on the 3rd stroke which is called the power stroke. When the piston reaches the lowest point of its downward travel, the exhaust valve opens and the movement of the piston upward on its 4th cycle (aka Exhaust stroke) pushes the burnt gas mixture out of the cylinder into the exhaust system and the 4 cycles begin all over again. Because the bottom of the piston is attached to the crank shaft it causes the crank shaft to rotate. This rotation is transmitted to whatever mechanical need the engine is to supply. On a car, it turns the wheels. On a lawn mower it turns the cutting blade.

How do you calculate the mechanical advantage of an arbor press?
The mechanical advantage is the ratio of the distance your hand moves to the distance the piston travels. For instance, if the lever is 21" long and a full rotation of the level produces a piston travel of 7" then your hand would move 2*pi*21" (131.9"). The ratio 131.9:7 reduces to 18.8:1. If you wanted to produce 1 ton (2000 lbs) of force on the piston you have to appy 106 lbs on the 21" lever.

What is a timing belt and what does it do in a car?
The timing belt is a belt that connects the engines crankshaft to the camshaft. The crankshaft is turned by the engine's pistons and tuns the vehicles drive wheels. The camshaft opens and closes valves that let fuel and air into the engine and allow burned vapors to exhaust. Timing the valves to the piston position is crucial to making the engine run. In most engines the intake valve (allows air and fuel in) is timed to open as the piston is moving downward in it's movement. The intake closes as the piston reaches the bottom of movement and is about to come back up. As the piston rises, it compresses the air and fuel and nanoseconds before it reaches the top of it's travel a spark plug ignites the fuel (if it's a gasoline powered engine). The explosive force of the ignition forces the piston back down, which forces the crankshaft to turn. When the piston reaches the bottom again, another valve opens to allow the burned fuel vapors out of the engine. The piston moves back up to push the gases out. After reaching the top of travel the exhaust valve closes and the intake valve reopens. With out the timing belt, the engine would have no way of correlating the opening of the valves to the placement of the pistons.

Asked in Buick Century
Where is the cylinders on a 1987 Buick Century 2.8 liter?
There are six cylinders in a 2.8. They are located inside the engine in the part known as the engine block. They are not accessible without dismantling the engine. The cylinders are the tubes that the pistons travel up and down in and they are located under the heads which are attached to the top of the engine block. The spark plugs screw into the heads and the spark is ignited inside the cylinder when the fuel air mixture has been compressed by the piston. The spark igniting the fuel/air mixture drives the piston down which turns the crankshaft and cause the engine to run.

What is meant by 2.5 liter engine?
One method of measuring engine size, and the most common, refers to the 'displacement' of the engine. This is calculated by measuring the difference in the volume of an engine cylinder when the piston is at the bottom of its travel and when it is at the top of its travel. This is the displacement of an individual cylinder. Multiplying this amount by the number of cylinders gives the engine displacement. Therefore, the total displacement of a 2.5 liter engine approximates 2.5 liters, or 2500 cubic centimeters. (cc's) Often, the figure will be rounded up, so a 2.5 liter might actually displace 2.38 liters.
