Absolute basics of a 4 cycle ICE in 30 sec

This video has enough information inside to teach someone about the absolute basics about an internal combustion engine. It includes lots of engine vocab and a quick walkthough (more like a sprint) of the ICE process. I built this engine model for the purpose of teaching myself more about ICE engines, it took a long time! Hopefully i spoke clearly enough so that my speed does not interfere with your brains sucking up this important information!. : )

Good model, but I'd like to see more detail in a longer instructable too.
If I call now, do I get a second engine absolutely free? Just pay shipping + handling? Excellent model, really really nice work. Next step: Make it run.
ok that didnt seem to work, try this then<br/><br/> &lt;object width=&quot;400&quot; height=&quot;300&quot; &gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot; value=&quot;true&quot; /&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowscriptaccess&quot; value=&quot;always&quot; /&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;movie&quot; value=&quot;http://www.facebook.com/v/109706871378&quot; /&gt;&lt;embed src=&quot;http://www.facebook.com/v/109706871378&quot; type=&quot;application/x-shockwave-flash&quot; allowscriptaccess=&quot;always&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;true&quot; width=&quot;400&quot; height=&quot;300&quot;&gt;&lt;/embed&gt;&lt;/object&gt;<br/>

<div class="wikierror"><strong>Video</strong><pre>invalid movie: http://www.facebook.com/michael.p.graham?ref=profile#/video/video.php?v=109706871378&amp;ref=mf</pre></div>lol i made another engine that runs on compressed air. hopefully the above link will work. I am currently working on one that runs on compressed air that can power a shoebox sized toy car with a clutch!<br/>
Isn't crank:cam gear ratio is 2:1 presenter says its 4:1
Thank you, you were right, the proper gear ratio is 2:1. Now i have to do something about it
lol well im not sure about common gear ratios for this, but i KNOW mine is 4:1. Thankyou for bringing attention to this, i will have to think about it.
sham wow! cool model though, i want one
Talking too fast is extremely irritating. Almost as much as shouting. It reminds of sleazy commercials and legalese...
It looks dark on my screen, you might want to re-shoot with different lighting? Anyway you do well to compress that much into 30 sec. L
