Engine is the power producing equipment without which no automobile design can be completed. Auto parts exporters have a complete range of auto components and engine spares demanded by the users in the market. Some parts are as discussed under:
- Cylinder block
Cylinder block or cylinder are critical part of any engine. Inside cylinder, fuel combustion occurs. All other parts like connecting rod, piston, crankshaft, water jacket, etc. are bolted within.
Piston is fixed in the cylinder and conveys thrust to the connecting rod. Piston is free to move and compresses the air fuel mixture to transform fuel energy into mechanical energy. Piston helps in transmitting power to the crankshaft.
- Cylinder head
Cylinder head is fixed on the cylinder block top. Its function is to seal the working end of cylinder and not to allow gases to enter and exit from cover head valves of the engine. Cylinder head is fitted with spark plug, valves, camshaft, etc.
- Connecting rod
Connecting rod is used for linking piston with the crankshaft and to transmit the thrust and motion of piston to crankshaft. It has two ends, the lower one is connected to the piston, and the bigger one is to crankshaft.
It is placed at the bottom end of the cylinder block. It is used for transmitting the reciprocating motion of piston into rotary motion. This rotary motion helps the wheels of the vehicle to function.
- Oil sump
Oil sump is fitted at the lower end of the cylinder block. The oil used for lubrication of movable parts is stored in it.
It is fitted either at the bottom of the cylinder block or in the cylinder head. Camshaft is used to open or close valves at proper timing in multi-cylinder engine.
Valves are fitted on the cylinder head. Valves are used for regulating the air fuel mixture flow inside the cylinder and eliminate the gas from the cylinder block. When both exhaust and inlet valves are closed, no pressure can enter inside or exit from the cylinder block.
A few more parts such as spark plug, injector, push rod, manifold, piston rings, gaskets, and engine bearing are also available at the shop of Auto parts exporters.
