Carburetor: Carburetion is the process of measuring, mixing and supplying to a spark ignition engine continuously a suitable combustible mixture of fuel and air. This mixture supply must be in accordance with the engine speed and load requirements. The carburetor supplies this mixture to an engine. The carburetor consists basically of a float chamber and a metering cum mixing chamber.

            We consider that the valves open and close at the dead centre positions of the piston. But, in actual practice they do not open and close instantaneously at dead centres. The valves operate some degrees before or after the dead centres. The ignition is also timed to occur a little before the top dead centre. The timings of these

Propeller shaft The propeller shaft connects the transmission shaft to the pinion shaft at the wheel axle. The propeller shaft is also called driveline shaft or drive shaft. The propeller shaft carries the power from the engine, clutch and transmission unit to the driving wheels of the vehicle, through the final drive and differential unit. Functions of the propeller shaft

Antilock or antiskid device The vehicle will stop more quickly if the brakes are applied just hard enough to get maximum static friction between the tyres and road. If the brakes are applied harder than this then the wheels will lock, the tyres will skid or slide on the road and a lesser kinetic friction will result. Then braking the

Power steering In heavy duty (dump) trucks and power tractors the effort applied by the driver is inadequate to turn the wheels. In this case a booster arrangement is incorporated in the steering system. The booster is set into operation when the steering wheel is turned. The booster then takes over and does most of the work for steering. This

Automatic Transmission | Components of the Automatic Transmission System

7ce74 01 automatic transmission system gear automatic transmission Automobile Engineering automatic transmission

Automatic transmission There are two types of automatic transmission (gear box), namely, semi-automatic transmission and transmission and fully automatic transmission. These are distinguished according to their effect on vehicle handling dynamics. Semi-automatic transmissions are the gear boxes on which all operations normally performed by the driver when changing gear are carried out by electronically controlled actuator systems. This implies that
