      You are doing great work man!! I always wanted to visualize how engine works and a transparent engine that's so awesome man! Science need more people like you! Love from India!

      Note the ‘wasted spark’ on the exhaust stroke just before top dead centre - simplifies the ignition points they are on a crank lobe as opposed to running at half engine speed on the cam shaft.

    4. DIY Channel

      Hi everyone, I am looking for a diagram or an explanation of the 2 stroke engine that was used in motor bikes for racing. The engine has 1 or 2 exhaust valves that shut off to hold more in the compression stroke. This is different to the power valve. Thank you

      those multiple engine mods are actually quite common for racing where I live, they usually take 2 or 3 125cc moped engines and weld them together.

    17. Gregies Pot

      Awesome guys ....we designed a 6 cylinder Chrysler side valve to run on petrol vapour and it operated efficiently and virtually no’s on you tube if you want to have a look ....cheers

      you should tell them to work as mechanical engineers they have amazing minds

    19. Dominik Uetz

      is there a reason that the spark plug goes off in the intake phase?

    53. Ken Cangi

      Hopefully this doesn't sound like too much of a dumb question. It's clear how the power stroke pushes the piston down, although what pushes it down on the intake stroke? Is it momentum from the previous power stroke.?

    66. Abhishek

      Hi, Can anyone answer a question for me: As it is visible in the video that the intake valve can open only by going up here and the exhaust valve can only move downwards to open, So when the power stroke happens (3rd one) then why only it pushes the piston and not the exhaust valve also( as we don't want the power to be lost from exhaust but only to be used to move the piston down) at this stroke but instead it is opened in the next stroke? I want to know how it is achieved: 1) preventing exhaust valve to go down in 3rd stroke and (2) what drives intake and exhaust valves? I'm a computer engineering so don't know much, only read about these interesting things in first year for basics😅.

      1. Redtooth 75

        The intake and exhaust valves both open into the cylinder. Pressure in the cylinder pushes the valve harder into its seat which makes it seal tighter. The part the runs the valves is called the camshaft. Its essentially a circle with lobe on it. As it turns the lobe will push the valve open and closed.

      Fact A 15-year-old teenager ... was fornicating with his high school teacher, who is 40 years old, and who has 3 children, two of whom are older than him! After her husband and the school administration knew of betrayal, and it was a resounding scandal, the teacher was transferred to another school in the same city, and the student was transferred to another city 170 km away from their original city. 13 years until the professor divorced her husband in 2006, and married her lover (her student) in 2007! This adulterous student who emerged from the embrace of fornication, rottenness, treachery and strange perversion with a married woman of his mother’s age, today he has become the head of a country called France, and today he gives us lessons about the “crisis” of Islam and wants to change our religion that does not agree. "With him !!!

    71. Pete B

      Destin. Love your stuff, but please can you not call the controlled combustion an explosion. Detonation in an engine is an explosion and is bad (sometimes called knocking or pinking). Thank you. Keep up the good work.

    72. John Wyn Francisco

      4:05 Where's the fuel injection? Edit: omg they used propane hahahaha

    73. adam courville

      They aren’t explosions. They are controlled burns and in fact, if there were no exhaust opening, there would be no loud popping sound that we associate with explosions. It is the sudden release of high pressure gas that makes the sound of an “explosion”.. Explosions (detonation) will destroy any engine fast. But I do give him the benefit of the doubt that he is aware of this and just used the common though false description that most people think of when describing an engines sound.

    74. Hondatech9

      Thank you. I’ve wanted to see this for a long time as well.

    75. Matt Thomas

      wow thanks for sharing

    76. mauro acevedo

      did u visit jason zimmerman from cinnamonson nj?

    77. David Lee

      It is NOT an explosion! There is a huge difference between combustion and detonation. Under the wrong conditions detonation of the fuel/air mixture can occur, but it is completely uncontrolled, makes very little power, and if it goes on long enough it will destroy the engine. Engines are designed around a known, controlled rate of combustion of the fuel. Any engine with "little explosions" going on is not only useless for doing any work, it's not going to be an engine very long.

    78. Raghav Shukla


    79. Ried Jacobsen

      It is not an explosion. It is a controlled burn.

      There's a lot of Everetts that do amazing work and I hope to be one of them

    91. Ladybug Fly

      Thank you for doing this educational video, im a woman and have no idea what is a spark plug and how does engine works. Now i feel like im smarter now😄 in not ignorant now.

    92. Lewis Heilig

      I ordered one of those FS/s100 at engines offline on the first it hasn't came in yet for some odd reason but it's a clear top and it's actually manufactured that way it is so cool dude all right brother I'll holler at you in a good way

    93. Marwari Rai

      awesome sir

    94. scivics

      there are so many things wrong with this vid. 1 near the end he said all pistons fire at the same time... they dont they fire at differt time like a i4 that fires with two pistons at a time. they must fire at differnt times or the engine willl be unbalanced and there will lots of vibrations

    95. scivics

      there not eplotions there computions

    97. Loïc Leung

      3:48 - "allowing a FUEL-AIR mixture to be drawn into the cylinder !" MY QUESTION IS... When the explosion is made , does it burn the PETROL as a GAS or as a LIQUID ? (Please answer me) (I think it's not liquid but how does it become GAS ?)

      1. 2359Rob

        The fuel becomes atomised and mixes with the air.

      This litt a spark plug in my brain
