It has an aluminum cylinder block
and develops a maximum torque of 140 lb.ft.
--small dimensions of the device transmitting the measuring signals from the cylinder block
to the stationary part of the system.
Both new MIVEC engines employ weight-reducing technologies such as the aluminum cylinder block
to achieve a more than 10 percent weight reduction, which contributes to improved fuel economy and driving performance.
POWERING AHEAD: An all-aluminium cylinder block
reduces weight and increases power on the updated 730d - but the price is pounds 1, 550 higher
The motor is connected to the shaft of the drive machine through the hollow shaft of the cylinder block
. The torque is transmitted by using a mechanical shrink disc/ shaft coupling, or alternately by splines.
Meanwhile, Imaki says it may be possible to introduce a common cylinder block
for gasoline and diesel engines within five years.
Using everyday products such as paper, toothpicks, and tape, students construct a structure that will support the weight of a cylinder block
for 30 seconds.
The new EcoBoost V6 features the first use of a compacted graphite iron (CGI) cylinder block
in a North American gasoline engine, the same material used in Ford's 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V8 engine.
