THIS review of early developments in automotive equipment and its lubrication requirements was presented by Mr. Mougey upon the occasion of his retirement from General Motors. He covers such subjects as crankcase oil specifications, crankcase dilution and corrosion, oil consumption, break-in oils, e-p crankcase oils, hydraulic valve lifters, relation of oils to octane requirement increase in engines, and hypoid-gear rear-axle lubricants - discussing what progress has been made and what problems are still to be solved. He also pays tribute to a few of the many individuals who contributed to the progress that has been made in automotive lubrication. He points out that there are many other subjects on which progress has been made, but that he couldn’t cover them all in one short paper.

THE 18-cyl turbine-compounded engine developed by Wright is claimed to be an attractive powerplant for aircraft designed to fly up to speeds of about 450 mph. The compounding of this engine is accomplished by means of three blowdown turbines. This type of turbine is used because, according to the authors, it is more efficient than the pressure turbine up to an altitude of about 30,000 ft. It is estimated that at take-off a suitable pressure turbine would provide about 8% increased engine output. The present Turbo Compound engine, with its blowdown turbines, gives an 18% increase.

THE control of residual stresses in automotive cylinder blocks is discussed in this paper. According to the authors, this study was started because a small percentage of castings was being scrapped because of cooling cracks in the valve compartment wall. They discovered that the greatest single factor in inducing trapped stresses in castings is too great a difference in the cooling rates for different portions between 1400 F and 600 F. They also found out that residual tensile stresses can be eliminated in a particular section by keeping its cooling rate at least as fast as that of other significant sections. Moreover, it is possible to move trapped stresses from one section to another by overcooling. They have also developed a method that gives quantitative results that serve as good index values of the trapped stresses present even in complex castings.

MOLECULAR weight or volatility has been found to be the most important factor in determining the extent to which a lubricant contributes to combustion-chamber deposits and octane requirement. Bright stock appears to be particularly harmful. Crude source (or variation in predominating hydrocarbon type) seems to have little effect. These authors report further that commercially practical mineral-base oils have been developed that show a significant advantage over previously known conventional lubricants in their ability to prevent these deposits and octane requirement increase when used with a conventional leaded fuel. Moreover, they say that SAE 5W-20 motor oils can be made that give a 4-5-octane advantage over conventional motor oils in preventing detonation. They point out, further, that, although progress has been made, even better lubricants and fuels are needed, in this respect.

INCREASING fuel prices and fuel taxes have forced engine builders to find ways to better engine specific fuel consumption in order to help operators survive the onslaught of increased operating costs. This paper explains how an improved combustion system has yielded up to 15% improvement in fuel consumption. This system was arrived at by analysis of those previous combustion systems which held most promise. The resulting direct-injection open combustion chamber is described here.

1. SCOPE: 1.1 Form: .This specification covers a highly viscous, non-melting, heat-stable silicone sealing compound, , 1.2 Application: Primarily for sealing joints in high tension electrical connections, aircraft engine I ignition systems, and electronic equipment and as a lubricant for components fabricated from elastomers. Compound is not recommended for use on silicone rubber parts subject to temperatures in excess of 150°C (300°F) and is to be avoided on or near any surfaces which subsequently are to be painted or adhesive bonded.

AMS3315B
This specification covers a silicone (VMQ) rubber reinforced with glass cloth. This product has been used typically for gaskets or seals requiring a thin, resilient, nonporous sheet material suitable for operating from -55 to +205 degrees C (-67 to +401 degrees F), but usage is not limited to such applications. This material is resistant to deterioration by weathering and petroleum-base engine oil and remains flexible over the temperature range noted. This material is not normally suitable for use in contact with gasoline or aromatic fuels and low-aniline-point petroleum-base fluids due to excessive swelling of the elastomer.
