Engine fundamentals: An engineering review

ive been absorbing this web site for a while now, great theory for engine builders and basics. the company designs and build systems for aircraft, but it all applies. might be a bit heavy for some.

mechanical basics TOC (force, friction, fatique, cyclical fatique, fretting failure, beairings, vibration):

http://epi-eng.com/mechanical_engine...s_contents.htm


engine basics:

power and torque- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...and_torque.htm

thermal efficiency- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...efficiency.htm

volumtric efficiency- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...efficiency.htm

piston motion basics- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...ion_basics.htm

cam and valves(applies more toward reliability in aircraft, still a good read)- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...aft_basics.htm

more advanced subjects:

exhaust system pressure wave tuning (very important!)- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...technology.htm

hydrodynamic bearings (the kind your rods and crank run on, interesting section on grooved main bearings)-
http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...e_bearings.htm

BMEP- great read for those who bullshit engine numbers- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec..._yardstick.htm

torsional excitation (aka engine vibration)- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...on_engines.htm

metalurgy- http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec..._materials.htm

piston engine TOC: http://epi-eng.com/piston_engine_tec...y_contents.htm

What would I be getting myself involved in....... I have already sale my '94 TBI manifold and TB with all the sensors from my '94 engine to a '95 CMPI vortec. I know the sensors are of slightly because the here block "breaths" better, has better heads, better cam, etc that have it 40+ more HP. Problem is this.. I have not put the HEI coil on this bear get. Anyone have that crystal ball that can for see any issues? Its my ONLY driver, and if I have it apart for another whole weekend without spending time with my wife I fear bad things could happen? I have all the books but she gets annoyed when I am face first in then for this also. Thought for sure some one has done it already, maybe I could save some time here! Thanks y'all had a good weekend

Couple of things...

Welcome to the forum.

Your post is difficult to follow without punctuation.

Make a post in the Electrical/Lightin section and you'll get more views/answers.

Not without a lot of wiring work. You should re-post in the 4.3/262 section for more answers.
