Engines have continuously evolved over the years, especially in the field of electronic control with the introduction of computerised control; however, the main elements of a 4-stroke engine are basically the same as when it was invented by Nikolaus Otto in 1867, with the strokes being: Intake, Compression, Combustion and Exhaust.
An engine is basically made up of two parts, the cylinder head and block. The cylinder head houses the elements (injectors, collectors, valves, etc.) for fuel supply to the combustion chamber and for the exhaust of resulting gases (intake and exhaust strokes). The engine block is where the elements that generate movement through combustion are found (pistons, cylinders, crankshaft, etc.) and where the fuel-air mixture compression takes place (compression and combustion strokes).
The engine contains systems that are vital to its preservation and functioning: fuel supply, cooling, lubrication, electric supply and the corresponding channeling systems, via fuel, water and oil pumps and a current generator or alternator.
It includes systems for the engine power to be transmitted to the wheels of the vehicle (clutch, gearbox, and transmission system), systems for the passengers’ comfort (heating, air conditioning, etc.) and assistance systems for the driver (power steering, assited braking, information, etc.).
We have original spare parts such as cylinder heads, gaskets, centrifugal pumps, clutch bellows and pumps, clutches, radiators and condensers, intercoolers, engine brackets, fuel, oil and water pumps, hoses, thermostats, electric fans and thermocontacts by the best manufacturers.
