  • The camshaft is used to operate the opening and closing of valves. It is driven by the crankshaft using timing gears.
  • Cylinder is the space in which cylinder reciprocates
  • The gasket is used to seal the gap between the cylinder head and cylinder block
  • spark plugs are used to ignite the fuel mixture
