An engine produces power by burning air and fuel. The fuel is stored in a fuel tank. The fuel tank is connected to a fuel pipe. The fuel pipe carries the fuel to a fuel pimp. The fuel pump is connected to the carburetor. The fuel pump pumps the fuel into the carburetor. In the carburetor the fuel is mixed with air. The fuel and air are drawn into the engine cylinder by the piston. Then the fuel and air are compressed by the piston and ignited by the spark plug. They burn ,and expand very quickly and push the piston down. Thus the power is produced. The burned fuel and air are expelled from the cylinder by the piston.

The flow of gases into and out of the cylinder is controlled by two valves. There is an inlet valve allowing fresh fuel mixture into the cylinder and an exhaust valve which allows the burnt gases to escape.

There are two basic engine operating cycles: the four-stroke cycle and the two-stroke cycle. The complete four-stroke cycle comprises: l)the induction stroke (the piston moves downwards); 2) the compression stroke (the piston moves upwards); 3) the power stroke (the piston moves downwards); 4) the exhaust stroke (the piston moves upwards).

A diesel engine (named after its inventor) is like a gasoline engine but simpler. The fuel used in a diesel engine is oil.

In a diesel engine, only air is blown into the cylinder. It is compressed by the piston till it becomes very hot. At that moment oil is injected into the compressed air. The air is so hot that the oil explodes immediately. It does not need spark plugs. The explosions push the pistons and turn the crankshaft as in gasoline engine.

Diesel engine can be four-stoke ones and two-stroke ones. In two-stroke engines every second stroke (and not every fourth as in four-stroke engines) is a power stroke. This is a real advantage as the two-stroke engine gives more power.

In a two-stroke diesel, as the piston moves down, a powerful blower blows air through vales into the cylinder.

As it comes in, the air pushes out the used gases from the previous explosion. The valves shut and the piston moves up, compressing the air and raising its temperature to about 1000 F.

At that moment oil is injected by a powerful pump. The oil explodes and the hot gases push the piston down. As ft comes up again air is blown and the used gases are pushed out once more.

6. Read and translate the text:

"Diesel Engine".

Diesels generally become competitive with engines above 30 hp. They are normally chosen because of their operating economy and greater curability. In general, a diesel costs about 2 ½ times as much as a gasoline engine, but on the average a diesel lasts about 2 1/2 times longer. Besides being more costly than gasoline engines, diesels also lend to produce more noise and vibration. They require fuel injection which contributes to their higher cost. Diesel fuel is less volatile than gasoline and, therefore, safer to handle.

Crank Gear.

Crank gear serves for converting reciprocating motion of the piston into rotating motion of the crankshaft.

Crank gear consists of immovable and movable details. Immovable details are cylinder head, cylinder block and crankcase.

The engine cylinder block is made of cast iron. It is fitted with grey-iron inserted t wet liners that are easily replaceable.

The cylinder heads are made of aluminium alloy and provided with inserted valve seats and valve guides. Each cylinder head is secured to the cylinder block by seventeen bolts.

The mobile details are piston with piston rings, piston pins, connecting rods, crankshaft and flywheel.

The pistons are made of aluminium alloy and tinplated. The pistons have an oval-ground skirt and two U-slots between the head and skirts.

Each piston is provided with four piston rings: three compression rings and an oil control ring. Two upper compression rings are chrome-plated on the outer cylindrical surface. The compound oil control ring consists of two flat steel disks and two expanders of axial and radial type.

The piston rods are made of steel. Each piston pin is fixed in the piston by twoo lock rings.

The connecting rods are made of steel. They are of double-T section. The connecting rod big end is fitted with steel, aluminium thin-welled shells. A bronze bush is pressed in the connecting rod small end.

The cast-iron flywheel with steel ring gear intended for starting the engine by the starter is attached to the crankshaft rear end flange by six bolts.
