Gas Engine Mechanics
Saturday, April 22, 2017 (All day)
This training is a broad introduction to all gasoline engines, with the goal of demystifying them. Starting with the parts that make up an engine and the overall theories of how an internal combustion engine works and progressing to identifying parts of actual engines commonly found on a farm and learning maintenance tasks, basic repairs, and troubleshooting theory. There will be classroom discussion as well as hands-on work on actual engines. Most work will be done on small simple engines, but connections to larger more complicated engines will be discussed. Participants are welcome to bring engines for 'show and tell" on training day.
At the end of this training, a participant should be able to indentify parts and discuss engines with more confidence, and will leave with the ability to perform basic repair and maintenance tasks correctly on their own.
