The "Small Gas Engines textbook" covers all areas of engine theory and service. The book includes extensive information on L-head, overhead valve, and overhead cam engine designs. The troubleshooting and engine service information in the book is generalized rather than manufacturer-specific so that it can be applied to a wide range of engine designs from different manufacturers. The book contains all of the service procedures needed to completely rebuild a small, single-cylinder gas engine. The theory sections of the book give the reader a sound understanding of the science involved in four-stroke and two-stroke internal combustion cycles in easy-to-understand language. They also provide the reader with clear explanations of the role of basic engine components, the benefits and operation of various engine designs, and up-to-date emission control information. Review questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the important information presented in that chapter. The suggested activities at the end of each chapter are hands on and research activities that help the students apply what they have learned in the text and expand their knowledge.
Designed to assist students in developing the skills required of professionally certified outdoor power equipment technicians, this book features operation, troubleshooting and service information that can be used to maintain and repair commonly used outdoor equipment, including: lawnmowers and garden tractors, snow throwers, leaf blowers and string trimmers, chain saws, and more! Comprehensive in scope, Small Engines for Outdoor Power Equipment begins by acquainting students with shop safety, tools and basic service information. Following exposure to the big picture of small engine operation, students are then introduced to the specifics of the ignition system, fuel system, governor and throttle control system, lubrication system, cooling and exhaust system, manual starting system, and the electrical starting and charging system. Both two-stroke and four-stroke engines are covered in detail. Small Engines for Outdoor Power Equipment also features step-by-step photo sequences to illustrate service techniques and provides students with an opportunity to test their knowledge by conducting a failure analysis and successfully rebuilding a failed engine.

From dirt bikes and jet skis to weed wackers and snowblowers, machines powered by small gas engines have become a permanent—and loud—fixture in American culture. But fifty years of high-speed fun and pristine lawns have not come without cost. In the first comprehensive history of the small-bore engine and the technology it powers, Paul R. Josephson explores the political, environmental, and public health issues surrounding one of America's most dangerous pastimes. Each chapter tells the story of an ecosystem within the United States and the devices that wreak havoc on it—personal watercraft (PWCs) on inland lakes and rivers; all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in deserts and forests; lawn mowers and leaf blowers in suburbia. In addition to environmental impacts, Josephson discusses the development and promotion of these technologies, the legal and regulatory efforts made to improve their safety and environmental soundness, and the role of owners' clubs in encouraging responsible operation. Synthesizing information from medical journals, recent environmental research, nongovernmental organizations, and manufacturers, Josephson's compelling history leads to one irrefutable conclusion: these machines cannot be operated without loss of life and loss of habitat.
