Sample text

Following the latter, the setbolts are marked on their heads with paint spots that all face in the same direction; then each nut is given a further specific amount of turn, perhaps in two stages of a quarter-turn each. With the setbolts equally tightened the paint spots will all be facing in the same but of course new direction. Whichever tightening procedure is used, the numerical sequence of tightening specified usually involves starting from the centre and working alternately towards each end.

Apart from maintaining a seal by compensating for the non-uniform loading between the cylinder head and block, the gasket material must also be able to withstand the intense heat of combustion, the penetrating effect of the coolant and the chemical effect of the lubricant. It is for these reasons that the cylinder head gasket has always been regarded as the most critical sealing application on any engine. Types of cylinder head gasket In earlier practice, cylinder head gaskets for engines of moderate size and power were traditionally of sandwich construction.

33). Cylinder block and crankcase materials The combination of cylinder block and crankcase is the single largest and most expensive component of an engine and may be produced from either cast iron or aluminium alloy. Cast iron is an alloy of iron and carbon; there are two general classifications, known as white cast iron and grey cast iron. 0 per cent, the difference between them is concerned with the condition in which the major portion of the carbon exists in the metal structure. Grey cast iron (so called owing to its grey rather than white appearance when fractured) is used for cylinder block and crankcase manufacture, because most of the carbon is present as flakes of graphite.
