What is a Crankshaft Drive?
A crankshaft drive is a complete mechanism which is made up of the crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, and flywheel. Transferring the power created from the fuel combustion via the pistons and the connecting rods to the crankshaft. This up-and-down movement turns the engine allowing you to drive.
What is a Crankshaft?
The crankshaft is the shaft that runs inside the bottom end of the engine converting the vertical movement of the pistons into rotational movement. Eventually driving the wheels via the gearbox.
Crankshaft vs Camshaft: What's the Difference?
Often mixed up, the crankshaft and camshaft are actually two separate parts of the engine. Both the crankshaft and camshaft must work together in a tightly-choreographed function for the engine in your car to operate smoothly.
The camshaft sits at the top and usually uses egg-shaped cams to open and close the valves. The crankshaft at the bottom converts the cranks to rotational motion. They are connected by the timing belt and must work in harmony together. This is called valve timing.
