A V6 makes use of six of them – to that end the identify – alternatively this method allows the engine to run on 4 or in all probability 3, principally creating it a smaller, further gas-efficient powerhouse. Cylinder-deactivation methods have had a fairly tainted earlier, then again nowadayss computer-assisted engine management systems deliver a electrical sander application.

Gear Introduction

 A gear also known as "gear wheel" is a rotating machine part having cut teeth, or cogs, which mesh with another toothed part in order to transmit torque. Two or more gears working in tandem are called a transmission and can produce a mechanical advantage through a gear ratio and thus may be considered a simple machine. Geared devices can change the speed, magnitude, and direction of a power source. The most common situation is for a gear to mesh with another gear, however a gear can also mesh a non-rotating toothed part, called a rack, thereby producing translation instead of rotation.
The gears in a transmission are analogous to the wheels in a pulley. An advantage of gears is that the teeth of a gear prevent slipping.
When two gears of unequal number of teeth are combined a mechanical advantage is produced, with both the rotational speeds and the torques of the two gears differing in a simple relationship.

There are tiny gears for devices like wrist watches and there are large gears that some of you might have noticed in the movie Titanic. Gears form vital elements of mechanisms in many machines such as vehicles, metal tooling machine tools, rolling mills, hoisting and transmitting machinery, marine engines, and the like. Toothed gears are used to change the speed, power, and direction between an input and output shaft.

1)      Gears  are the most common source used for power transmission.
2)      They can be applied for two shafts which are-
·         Parallel
·         Collinear
·         Perpendicular &Intersecting
·         Perpendicular and Non-intersecting
·         Inclined at an arbitrary angle

Tecumseh HMSK80 Engine Alternator Installation

The one part that I didn't discuss in my last post was the key missing
component. In order to operate correctly the alternator, which generates
A.C. power, need a rectifier to convert the A.C. to D.C. Then I can use
an automotive style utility light which are easily obtained at local
stores. Adding a battery allows me to run the light without the engine
running, or when the engine is running at low RPMs.

Original flywheel is removed. This is required to install the alternator
coils which are mounted underneath. The old flywheel makes a nice paper
weight once it's off.

The new flywheel has 5 magnets to match the alternator coil below. I'm
not knowledgeable on the effects of different numbers of magnets numbers
of coils. They would most likely affect the power output and possibly
frequency/amplitude of the output AC signal.

Below I've mounted the alternator to the engine.

Routing of the wires is critical as it cannot rub against the flywheel
when running, nor can it crimp the fuel line. Try a few different
routing options to find what's best for your setup.

Below are the two AC alternator output wires hooked up to the two channels of my scope.

Same thing, just overlaid.

Then I hooked it up to a full-bridge rectifier and we see the desired "DC" output is not clean at all.

I will be adding a capacitor as well as a regulating circuit to reduce
the voltage to a stable 14.4V. I hope to use a switching setup rather
than linear regulator.

Audi A3 Audi A3 iPod Install

Okay, I was too impatient to wait for the Audi ipod OEM solution. I have just finished installing the necessary components, and it just works. I want to thank N3WBI3 at the fourms for investigating this and confirming it.

The exact details and part(s) needed


You will need a Audi/VW radio removal tool. If you have the Symphony II, I think you will need 2 pair. (I have the Concert II).

The car is NOT pre-wired for CD, so I also had to purchase the AA3-HAR adapter that is shown next to the radio removal tool. The 10mm wrench is for disconnecting the negative battery terminal. Oh yeah, this article is FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.... Im not responsible for any car-fires caused by faulty installation.

Install Pics

Here you can see the VW/PC-POD adapter. There is lots of space behind the climate control area.

You can see how the top rack of cables plugs into the adapter cable.

The iPod adapter takes the right-most slot of the top bank on the radio. Make sure you ground this cable to metal.

The slightly harder part is feeding the iPod dock cable from the back of the center console to the glove box. The glove box liner comes right out with a firm pull. I drilled a hole in the back to allow the cable to pass through.

Here you can see what it looks like when finished. You can leave the cable in the glove box if you want, but I was getting tired opening/closing it, so I have opted to leave it out for now. A neat installation would be to get a dock and retrofit is somehow to go where the ashtray is currently located. If anybody has any ideas...

I purchased the iPod interface for approximately $140 shipped via ebay and the cable was another $25. I was quoted about $195 (includes tax) for the Audi cable, so I saved a little, and I got it a whole week earlier. You can see that the PIE interface disables the iPod when connected.

Hope this helps.


I have changed the placement from the glove box to under the console as I was getting tired of opening/closing the box to get the iPod. Some people have mentioned that they like to keep in the glove box for security reasons. I am thinking of making some "home-brew" panel to cover this area so at least you dont see it from outside the car while parked.
