    Excellent Internal Combustion Engine site

    OK, I admit it - I am one of the "mechanically challenged" and to date have only understood discrete pieces of the workings of the engines we love so much.

    In trying to rectify this I have been searching around for good examples and info re how an internal combustion engine works and all the parts and came across this great site with animated 3d models and clear descriptions. It goes over a few pages and starts with real basics and then develops to more complex subsystems with excellent diagrams.

    Hopefully it will enlighten a few others

    Health and good fortune always,

    We ran to the sounds of thunder.
    We danced among the lightning bolts,
    and tore the R10's assfromunder.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    How stuff works is a great site. It covers almost anything, and it often has animations.
