The Different Types of Ignition Systems

Gasoline-fueled piston engines require an ignition source to set off the explosion that converts the chemical potential energy of the air-fuel mixture into thermal energy which the engine can convert into mechanical energy. Each type of ignition source has advantages and disadvantages (which we’ll get to soon), but all have the same basic objective, which

How to Check Mechanical Fuel Injectors with the GTC605

This video shows how you can use the GTC605 Fuel Injection Analyzer to quickly check mechanical injectors on a small indirect injection diesel. Transcript (0s) Narrator: Starting and configuring the GTC605 only takes a few seconds; we’ll start by using the the easy-to-read digital view to check how long each injector is ‘open’ for on
