n: a rotating shaft to which connecting rods are attached. It changes up and down (reciprocating) motion to circular (rotary) motion.
A shaft with one or more cranks, or "throws," that are coupled by connecting rods to the engine's pistons. Together, the crankshaft and the con rods transform the pistons' reciprocating motion into rotary motion.
Main engine shaft that converts the pistons' reciprocating motion into rotary motion.
The shaft that transmits power from the pistons to the differential.
This is the heart of the engine. This is what spins and provides the motion for all the other parts in the engine (con-rods, pistons, transmission, etc.). All other parts in the engine work toward getting the crankshaft to turn fast and powerful.
The main rotating member, or shaft, running the length of the crankcase, with offset â€œthrowsâ€ to which the connecting rods are attached.
A crankshaft changes the up and down movement of the piston to a rotary movement.
The rotating shaft within the engine that is turned by the up-and-down motion of the pistons. The crankshaft transfers power to the flywheel, and in turn to the transmission. The crankshaft is housed within the crankcase, which is part of the engine block.
a rotating shaft driven by (or driving) a crank
The shaft which the pistons drive via connecting rods. Transmits power to the transmission.
A main rotating shaft running the length of the engine that transmits power to the transmission for turning the wheels of a car.
One of the more important things under a carâ€™s hood is the crankshaft. The crankshaft is a rotating shaft that is powered by the up-and-down motion of the pistons. While doing this the crankshaft powers the flywheel, which powers the transmission. The crankshaft is housed in the crankcase.
The rotating shaft within the engine that delivers the power from the pistons to the flywheel, and from there to the transmission.
The main shaft of an engine with a U-shaped offset at each cylinder to which the connecting rod is attached. It delivers rotary motion taken from the reciprocating pistons and connecting rods.
Also called the bottom end. This is the shaft at the bottom of the engine that turns as the Pistons fire (the pistons force it to rotate in circular motion) and has a connection to the flywheel, clutch, and eventually the main shaft of the transmission, torque convertor and possibly Belt Pulley or PTO. Other components that the crankshaft will drive are the water pump, generator, oil pump, camshaft (and thus valves), and hydraulic pump (some older models instead had hydraulic pumps connected to the PTO or Belt Pulley system). On some machines, it also either directly or indirectly drives superchargers, air port intakes (2 stroke diesels), and air conditioning pumps (late model tractors only).
A series of offset levers that connect to the pistons through connecting rods. As the pistons move, they turn the crankshaft, which turns the combustion into torque to drive the car.
A cranked shaft that is driven by the pistons and provides the engine output to the transmission.
The cranked shaft in an engine that changes the pistons linear motion into rotational motion.
The shaft that converts the linear motion of the pistons into rotation. The crankshaft is connected to the transmission.
Engine component (connected to pistons by connecting rods) which converts the reciprocating (up and down) motion of pistons to rotary motion used to turn the driveshaft.
The main rotating shaft in an engine that transfers the pistons' up and down motion into a smooth circular motion that is then used to drive the transmission and eventually the wheels.
The crankshaft turns back-and-forth motion into rotary motion, It is attached on one end to a connecting rod and turns the propeller screw on the other. Also, the crankshaft contains a rotary valve, which takes fuel from the fuel jet, and air from the venturi, and injects it at timed intervals into the combustion chamber. This rotary valve also creates a partial vacuum which draws air through the venturi, and fuel from the fuel tank.
The main driving shaft of an engine that receives reciprocating motion from the pistons and converts it to rotary motion.
A shaft with one or more cranks, or "throws," that are coupled by connecting rods to the engine's pistons. The combustion process creates reciprocating motion in the rods and pistons which in turn is converted to a rotating motion by the crankshaft.
A shot consisting of two or more throws or crankpins which is driven by connecting rods attached to the throws.
The engine component that converts the linear motion of the pistons into rotational motion.
The vertical movement of the pistons is transformed into rotational movement by the crankshaft. Connected to the pistons via the conrods. [ edit
Used in both machinery and piston engines, this rotating shaft with connecting rods attached, for converting between rotary and reciprocating motion.
