Engine Description

The Glide engine is a two-cylinder, four-cycle, air cooled, overhead-valve, V-type engine with 74' cu. in. displacement. It has three major component assemblies: cylinder, crankcase and gearcase.

Cylinder assemblies include cylinder head, valves, rocker arms and piston. Cylinders mount on the engine crankcase in a 45 degree "V," with both connecting rods connected to a single crank pin.

The reciprocating, linear motion of the piston in the cylinder is converted to circular motion in the crankcase. The built-up crankshaft consists of an off-center crank pin interposed between two counter-weighted flywheels which rotate on two end shafts (pinion and sprocket shafts) supported by anti-friction roller bearings. The lower end of the rear cyl-
