inlet and exhaust

  • Power was limited by the inlet and exhaust passages, which, compared with present-day practice, were very small. Cited from A History of Aeronautics, by E. Charles Vivian
  • Inlet and exhaust manifolds are cast together and mounted on the near side.
  • As inlet and exhaust are usually combined special attention should be given to valve cooling to avoid engine knocking.
  • A variator system that moved a single camshaft for both inlet and exhaust would be possible, but would have no performance benefit.
  • Early engines were incapable of this, as they used a single valve for both inlet and exhaust.
  • Costs can be reduced in production engines by casting the inlet and exhaust manifolds as one unit.
  • This gear used separate valves for inlet and exhaust so that the inlet cut-off could be controlled precisely.
  • The inlet and exhaust valves were also placed at this point of closest-approach between the pistons.
  • All K series are non-crossflow engines -- the inlet and exhaust manifolds are on the same side.
  • The effect can be maximized by careful design of the inlet and exhaust passages.
  • Simple two-stroke engines with ported inlet and exhaust cannot be supercharged since the inlet port always closes first.
  • They had clerestory combustion chambers with single inlet and exhaust valves above and below the chamber.
  • It also had the latest design of cylinder head with austenitic steel inlet and exhaust valves.
  • There were no valves, and inlet and exhaust were via ports in the cylinder walls.
  • Gear driven camshafts operate a single inlet and exhaust valve in each cylinder via pushrods.
  • It featured a larger crank nose, larger piston oil squirters, a main bearing support plate, better flowing inlet and exhaust ports.
  • The tops of the cylinders are formed flat, and seats for the inlet and exhaust valves are formed on them. Cited from A History of Aeronautics, by E. Charles Vivian
  • Firstly, there is limited space when inlet and exhaust ports are arranged in a line on one side of the head meaning a reduction in port area compared to a crossflow head.
  • Inlet and exhaust valves can be set quite independently of one another -- a useful point, since the correct timing of the opening of these valves is of importance. Cited from A History of Aeronautics, by E. Charles Vivian
  • It incorporated a mechanism which shifted the cylinder in relation to the inlet and exhaust and so allowing it to run in reverse.
