new pistons, new dorms...


finally received, on a same day, the special designed pistons and taps for the beemer :) must be a revelation. "work, shinya. work!"

待っていたベーエムヴェー用の特注ピストンと、こちらも待っていたベーエムヴェー用のタップが同時に届いた。働けというお告げに決まっている。

we also received a pair of intake dorms for our 1915 indian, just in case.

さらに1915インディアン用のインテーク・ドームがカナダから届いた。念のためスペアを持っていると安心。
 
shinya and niimie were a little apprehensive about its material. they were talking about making them with more durable mateirals themselves.

しかし、木村氏とN美氏は素材に不安があるみたい。ただレストアするならいいかもしれないけど、大陸横断となると・・・もっと耐久性のある素材で作り直す計画を立てる2人。
 

at any rate, they need to modify this new pair to actually use on our indian.

いずれにせよ、このままは使えそうもないので、我々のインディアンに合うようにまずは加工が必要みたい。

A piston is a component of reciprocating engines, reciprocating pumps, gas compressors and pneumatic cylinders, among other similar mechanisms. It is the moving component that is contained by a cylinder and is made gas-tight by piston rings. In an engine, its purpose is to transfer force from expanding gas in the cylinder to the crankshaft via a piston rod and/or connecting rod. In a pump, the function is reversed and force is transferred from the crankshaft to the piston for the purpose of compressing or ejecting the fluid in the cylinder. In some engines, the piston also acts as a valve by covering and uncovering ports in the cylinder wall.

An intake, or especially for aircraft inlet, is an air intake for an engine. Because the modern internal combustion engine is in essence a powerful air pump, like the exhaust system on an engine, the intake must be carefully engineered and tuned to provide the greatest efficiency and power. An ideal intake system should increase the velocity of the air until it travels into the combustion chamber, while minimizing turbulence and restriction of flow.
