This can be seen in Figure 6, where the circular flange on the valve box contacts both the crankcase and the cylinder barrel.
From the crankcase of the ship ahead of him flames were leaping.
This stop was hinged to the crankcase and actuated by a small rod running along and supported by the crankcase deck.
In this rotary motor the cylinders and crankcase revolve about the crankshaft which is stationary.
Cylinder Fastening: Early models had their cylinders strapped and bolted to the crankcase.
Magnalium takes the place of aluminum in the crankcase, because it is not only lighter but stronger and can be cast very thin.
The crankcase was drilled to provide forced-feed lubrication to the connecting rod big end and crankshaft main bearings.
This type of fastening actually strengthened the crankcase in contrast to the usual method.
The distributing valve forms a part of the crankcase as does the water intake, and the gear pump.
crankcase: It was strengthened by having external ribs added.
