Default Pictures explain it all!

Found this site where they explain the difference of sohc,dohc, and pushrod engine. For me, the animated illustrations explain a lot that words get lost on.

That was really cool to watch. I had to have my son explain to me what a camshaft was

Hey- I just drive 'em I don't fix 'em.

but it was cool and I learned something new today and that is all that matters

Statistics show you forget 80% of what you learn each day. Which makes me wonder, now, if I remembered that, what did I learn that may have actually been important.....
