Cool stuff!

This is what happens when engineers are left at home alone with too much time and money on their hands ... Kind of like a nerd version of "girls gone wild".


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

Shannow. I would want to see how much shearing was going on in the oil of that engine. LOL

Also, the sleeve valves have an oil film between the sleeve and the cylinder, and the piston and the cylinder

Exactly... I went to school for computer engineering and you should see the home automation stuff I have done with smart-device modifcations, Raspberry Pi's etc. I built an automated watering system that turns on the in-ground sprinklers with very specific conditions and weather monitors / soil moisture meter etc. I have perfectly green grass with minimal water use. My neighbour had me build him a similar system and the other neighbours on the street can't figure out how our grass is so green, thick/lush with no weeds and it barely gets watered. (Just watered based on smart conditions)

I enjoy messing around with stuff like that. I'm currently working on a system that would automate my temperature control by changing furnace / A/C settings / and opening the windows and turning on ceiling fans etc. to best control the temperature with the least amount of energy.
