Best Answer

In most chamberings, purely for looks. For instance, the Ruger Super Blackhawk has an unfluted cylinder in keeping with it's "Dragoon" appearance, but the Ruger Blackhawk in .44 Magnum (same chambering) had a fluted cylinder. Revolvers in the truly monster chamberings like .475 Linebaugh typically use a non-fluted cylinder to maximize the strength of the cylinder.

Why gases are kept in air tight gas cylinders?

So they'll stay in the air tight gas cylinders. Some gases are expensive and others are dangerous (some are both), and you don't want them leaking out. These cylinders are not only air tight, they're very pressure resistant. Most gases are shipped at between 2000 and 5000 psi, and the cylinder has to be made to withstand that much pressure. Acetylene is shipped at 250 psi because it's unstable at higher pressures, but acetylene cylinders are also capable of withstanding 2500 psi.

Could bad ignition coils blow a head gasket?

Bad coils would cause the spark not to occur, causing the fuel air mixture not to ignite, dumping raw gas out the exhaust. A small amount of raw fuel may end up in the oil, if any , by leaking past the piston rings. If some cylinders are not firing, that would put more load on the other cylinders that are, and the engine would run rough. Excessive load on some cylinders and no load on others, over time, may cause some cylinders to run hotter, others cooler... Plus extra pressure inside the cylinders running at full throttle... Additional factors might come into play, such as the coolant running low one day, indeed, this may be enough to create a leak in the head gasket. However, the above is only a theoretical argument. I personally have experienced a blow in a head gasket, in an old saab, it blew during a period of hard acceleration.
