 Nicolaus August Otto

14th June 1831 TO 26th January 1891

The Internal combustion engine An engine in which the fuel is burnt inside the engine rather than in a separate furnace - see steam engine. Examples include all piston engines, jet engines, and rockets. 

The first practical internal-combustion engine was patented by Nicolaus August Otto in 1876, and it is the Otto-cycle petrol engine that still powers most road vehicles. A simpler but less efficient petrol engine is the two-stroke, used where low power is required. The main alternative to the petrol engine is the Diesel engine, based on a cycle invented by the German engineer Rudolf Diesel (18581913), which is heavier and more expensive than the petrol engine. The gas turbine uses continuous combustion. Jet engines based on the gas turbine are used widely in aircraft.

The Petrol engine and the Diesel engine are similar, it is only that they use different types of fuel as the power source.  Both engines use the Otto 4-stroke cycle - Intake Stroke, Compression Stroke, Power Stroke and Exhaust Stroke. By far most engines running on our roads to day use pistons that drive the engine, and are powered by gasoline. The piston fits into a pot or barrel and at the top of the stroke there is an explosion and this pushes the piston down.

A Car Petrol Engine -  Automobile

All pistons are connect by a crank, so when one moves they all move, all at a different stage of the 4-stroke cycle. The crank turns and drives the wheels. In petrol engines the explosion is ignited by an electrical spark from a spark-plug. The picture above clearly shows the 4 High-Tension leads that run from the Distributor to each engine pot.

The petrol engine, has improved immensely over the years and is now far more efficient and clean-burning; fuel savings have tripled than say, 50 years ago.

Not only are we fully trained to make your engine as good as it can be, we specialize in other parts that go to make up today's modern car. The transmission; the clutch and gear-box. The water-cooling system; the radiator, the water-pump. In fact every part is either repairable or easily replaced.
