Diesel & Gas Engines?
I think that''s what i was wondering. Would a basic knowledge of engines (be it deisel or gas)be transferable to one type or the other.
As a programmer, i''ve found that you don''t necessarily need to know a language to get the basics from it. If I had a good knowledge of Cobol, I could take a fair shot at figuring out a program in, say, Unix. The syntax is different, but the basic structure and logic is the same.
I''ve been pretty good with making logical connections with unknown things, so i guess that''s what i was wondering. Were the two engine systems structurly the same, enough so that a basic knowledge of one would help with understanding the other.
I dont know engines very well (now), so i wasnt sure how close the two were.
I''ll look into the gas engine class then, and definitly find anything else i can on diesel.
Thank you both for the info! :O)
