Identify Part [Misc]09/25/99
I have a circuit board that has a part which needs to be replaced (overheated and broken). I have not been able to find anyone (electronic suppliers) that can identify the part. The part is about 1 inch (25 MM) in DIA. and 1/8 inch (3.1 MM) thick and is black and marked SG355. It has 2 leads and looks like a large radial lead capacitor. The current passing through this part goes on through a relay on its way to a DC motor. The logo is in block letters, and appears to be "Li" or "Ri". The "L" or "R" is a vertical solid white rectangle. The "i" is the same width as the "L" but is lower case and just an outline, the "dot" is solid white on the top while the lower half is just a line. The top of the "dot" may be the extension of the "R". I think it is a thermistor (thyristor)(varisitor) that controls inrush current to a mechanical relay. Who makes it and where can I get one, that is the question?

Sixstroke Engine [Misc]08/11/99
The Sixstroke engine is fundamentally superior to the Fourstroke because the head is no longer parasitic but is a net contributor to, and an integral part of the power generation within the engine. The Sixstroke is thermodynamically more efficient because the change in volume of the power stroke is greater than the intake stroke, the compression stroke, and the exhaust stroke. The compression ratio can be increased because of the absence of hot spots. The rate of change in volume during the critical combustion period is less than in a Fourstroke. The absence of valves within the combustion chamber allows design freedom. Malcolm Beare. Ph/fax 61 885 645 201
