Technical progress, also based on what a previously invented .. Well, for example, the spark plug ,, which also used a. Only properly selected sum of the previous inventions, creates a new, sometimes much better way to the engine. So that all these values are taken into consideration .. What does not necessarily give the profits we expect when we apply them to new ideas. .. Exactly the channel, in such form as you can see in the picture, between the cylinders, when we use a simple candles spark there that the engine is not at all able to launch itself .. Now, to find the right answer to the question of why this is so, was able Hares 3 weeks of daily motor starters, without receiving even one blue smoke .. You can give yourself answer in this case, what would you do ?? . If at all you would not give up the attempt at all .. ?? I do not quit. Why?. Well, because my first prototype run like a perfectly normal engine seamlessly .. I knew that here must be something badly, because it can be very believed in the value of Ricardo .. of course I had to dismantle the engine to enter there any fixes. Meanwhile I had to do, "doctoral thesis" of the formation of the flame in the combustion engine. After converting speed they were in such a small channel, it turned out that they can be as small as 1200.km / h or Mach 1 ~~ .. I made a discovery that at this speed, spark between the electrodes can not be formed spark power, because it is one basic condition, when it is possible. This condition is that the candle was created between the electrodes ionized air (mix), because when there will be the ionized air, it's never a spark is not created. For me, this air flow rate resulted in "taking" of ionized air from between the electrodes of the spark plug, and never the ionization does not have at this point .. So that want to take advantage of Ricardo, a little went wrong. I had to do a lot bigger this channel to reduce the speed of the air flow. So I did, and after a week of work on the demolition and modification of the chamber of the motor started immediately ... So my diagnosis was correct .. the other hand, I found out that that with such a large system speed in the channel, if used diesel fuel injector is probably about keep high speed diesel, well even up to 10 000 rpm ..
Therefore, I will not make any sleeve valve, because my engine, such "piston sleeve valve".
And this is the right step future
