Re: engine question

1cc = .061023 cu.in. .15/.0.061023 =2.45cc, .21/.061023= 3.44 cc. In the same token our dl50= 3.05 cu.in. hope this helps...

Engine Problems

So you go out one morning and your engine will turn over but it won't start... What could be wrong? Now that you know how an engine works, you can understand the basic things that can keep an engine from running. Three fundamental things can happen: a bad fuel mix, lack of compression or lack of spark. Beyond that, thousands of minor things can create problems, but these are the "big three." Based on the simple engine we have been discussing, here is a quick rundown on how these problems affect your engine:

Bad fuel mix - A bad fuel mix can occur in several ways:

* You are out of gas, so the engine is getting air but no fuel.
* The air intake might be clogged, so there is fuel but not enough air.
* The fuel system might be supplying too much or too little fuel to the mix, meaning that combustion does not occur properly.
* There might be an impurity in the fuel (like water in your gas tank) that makes the fuel not burn.
