Port timing diagram fortwo stroke petrol engine
To determine the period of port opening and closing and to draw the porttiming diagram for the two stroke petrol engine.
i) Measuring tape and ii) Marker.
i) Identify the inlet, exhaust and transfer ports.ii) Ascertain the correct direction of rotation of the flywheel by observing the correctsequence of opening and closing of the ports.iii) Measure the circumference of the flywheel.iv) Rotate the flywheel in the correct direction and mark the position of IDC andODC on the flywheel against a reference point.v) Rotate the flywheel slowly and mark the position at which the inlet port just begins to open. Continue the rotation and mark the position at which it closes.vi) In the same way mark the position of the exhaust port and transfer port openingand closing.vii) Measure the circumferential distances between the various markings with respectto the nearest dead centre.viii) Tabulate the readings. Determine the period of port opening and closing at ratedspeed. Also draw the port timing diagram.
i) Crank angle = [ Arc length / Circumference ] x 360
ii) Period of port opening(closing) = [ Crank angle / 360] x [ 60 / N ] , secondsWhere, N = Speed in rpm.
