Example text

For example, the engines with a fairly low compression ratio used in Rolls-Royce cars of the late 1920s originally had five-ring pistons. The basic reason why fewer rings can now be used is that the higher mean cylinder pressures better augment the sealing action of the rings. Various forms of compression ring may be specified, the differences between them lying in their cross-sectional shapes and the application of wear-resistant surface treatment. 53a). 53b). The second compression ring principally serves to reduce the pressure drop across the top ring, and it can with advantage be made relatively more flexible so as also to assist oil control.

49 Piston construction and nomenclature A final consideration in fitting flanged liners, either wet or dry, is the provision of a small amount of nip. 45a). 005 in) is fairly typical. Crankcase sump or oil pan This unit acts as a reservoir to store the oil that is required by the engine lubrication system. It further serves as a vessel in which any sludge, water and metal particles in the oil can settle out, and also provides an opportunity for any entrained air to escape from the oil. The sump is either of pressed steel construction, or produced from an aluminium alloy.

This was because the particular grade of iron from which they were cast centrifugally could be selected for its wear-resistant properties, rather than for the free-flowing characteristics required of an iron for casting the cylinder block and crankcase. However, later developments in the fields of piston ring coatings, lubricating oil formation, oil and air Head gasket Liner retaining flange Closeddeck Opendeck Liner Liner (a) (b) filtration equipment and cooling system control have all combined to minimize cylinder bore wear, so that the need for detachable liners on this score seldom arises.
