Automotive Engine System

Internal combustion engine is a precise combustion fuel mixture of liquid fuel and air in the cylinder drive. The fuel pumped into the reservoir until it is needed, then a car or a new carburetor, fuel injection system.Carburetor control air and gas mixture, the engine is moving. Fuel mixes with air at the top of the tube, called suction pipes leading to cylinders. The vacuum created by the shock piston Air Base closed the carburetor and intake manifold. Gassed in an air flow of fuel into fine spray or vapor is converted. Pounds of fuel intake pipe in the steam cylinder, which ignited.

All new vehicles produced today, equipped with fuel injection instead of carburetors. Calibrated nozzle fuel burst into the cylinders, either in or close to apertures in the combustion chambers. As the exact amount of gas injected into the appropriate cylinder, fuel injection is more accurate to vote easier and more consistent as a carburetor, with greater efficiency, effectiveness, responsiveness and control pollution of the engine. Injection systems are very different, but most are electronically controlled and operated.

High-performance car is often the air compression equipment installed on the engine power output is increased. Since the air and fuel flow into the engine, the compressors are driven by the crankshaft. Turbocharger is compressed to control the gas turbine exhaust.

The exhaust system includes exhaust from internal combustion engines to soften or reduce the atmospheric engine noise. Exhaust gases leave the engine in a tube, through the catalytic converter and exhaust from the exhaust gases.

Dangerous chemical reactions in the catalytic carbon monoxide and the engine oil from water vapor and carbon dioxide produced.

A silent film classic is a closed metal tube filled with good absorbing material. Most of the silent film classic, round or oval, with inlet and outlet pipes on both sides. Those are some of the barriers that reduce engine noise.

Engine manufacturers are equipped with electronic noise, which uses sensors to test the sound the exhaust system fitted noise monitoring. Data sent sound waves through a personal computer, speakers at the exhaust pipe. The system generates sound waves 180 degrees is not consistent with sound engine. Sound waves in silence Save Cancel electronic and acoustic signals, so that only low-level heat in the exhaust pipe. It is generated in the engine combustion temperatures hot enough to melt iron. Cooling system of the heat engine cylinder and radiates into the air.

In most cars, the coolant circulates through the engine. The pump sends coolant from the radiator, heat the refrigerant in the air. In the beginning was the engine coolant. In most modern cars freezing, chemical solution known as refrigerant, which has a higher boiling point and lower freezing point of water, was effective in extreme temperatures. Some are air-cooled engines, which mean that they are designed to allow air to reach the metal plate for heat from the cylinder.

Automotive Restoration: A Frame-Off Body Repair of a 1960 Ferrari

This automotive restoration project began in June 2010, with the client’s sights set on showing it at Pebble Beach. This 1960 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfaria Cabriolet (PF Cab) had been in storage for 30 years in Arizona before being purchased by the current owner. Ferraris during this time were hand built by Italian coach makers and the engines were also hand-built by Ferrari. The 250 GT series was built for the customer that wanted a street legal car that he could also take to the race track. Of course not everyone raced their Ferraris, some customers just wanted the awesome power and beautiful styling of the 250 GT. Pininfarina is still operating and still makes concept and prototype cars for major companies around the globe.

After the Ferrari 250 GT PF Cab was disassembled and media blasted, I set about repairing and reconstructing the body to its original factory state.

This client was particularly concerned about getting the rebuild perfectly symmetrical. I had an idea, born from my experience working in the prototype industry: to build a box with a measuring system to aid the build of the vehicle. The photos below are a brief taste of posts to follow.
The first part of this post covers a measuring device we designed and built specially for this Ferrari PF Cab and the second part explains how it was used to rebuild the tail light area.

The objective of the measuring box is to figure out if a car body was built square to the chassis and is symmetrical from side to side. Before delving into measuring the body, remember that this was a Ferrari hand built body from the 1960′s, so tight tolerances are not expected. The idea is that the Ferrari PF Cab body and chassis sit on a center line inside a 3-dimensional steel framed box. The perimeter of the box acts as a measuring datum so that measurements from the box to the Ferrari PF Cab can be taken on the left and right hand sides and then compared to check symmetry.

The 3-dimensional box is divided into 3 planes representing length, depth, and height. On each axis is 1/2″ machined holes spaced 200mm apart, these holes are locations for the measuring stations. A line runs down the center of the box and the center of the chassis is aligned with a custom stand to the body. The center line only runs length ways, as the body is only symmetrical in one direction. The body is divided into a grid, with the aid of a laser, and numbered to aid recording.

These were the findings of major significance for this Ferrari PF Cab:

1. the front right-hand headlight housing is 10mm further forward than the left-hand headlight

2. the body style line is 6mm higher on the right-hand side than the left-hand

3. the complete rear end of the car is kicked over to the right hand side 50mm from the rear of the doors to the back of the Ferrari. Not from accident/damage, just how the car was built.

4. the left-hand rear tail light housing peak leans inwards 8mm

After discussing the above findings with the client, the first issues to address was the left-hand tail light problem. Now we will show the step by step rebuild and fabrication of the light housing. Why rebuild this area? On first sight the sheet metal housing clearly looked as though the top was angled inwards and second, the housing was too big for the light bezel, which formed the appearance of a step. To be correct in appearance, the surface of the bezel should be level with the surface of the paint. As part of the ‘measuring box’ process, we recorded results showing the top of the housing was 5mm to the right of center. To fix these two problems it was most practical and cost efficient to make a completely new housing and then graft it into the fender.
