Method of lubricating moving parts by agitating or splashing oil in the crankcase.

BEARING

A support or guide by means of which a moving part such as a shaft or axle is positioned with respect to the other parts of a mechanism.

ANTI-FRICTION BEARING

A rolling contact type bearing in which the rotating or moving member is supported or guided by means of ball or roller elements. Does not mean without friction.

ARMATURE

the rotating part of an electric motor or generator. The moving part of a relay or vibrator.

NONCONTACT BEARING

A bearing in which no solid contact occurs between relatively moving surfaces.

PARTICLE EROSION

Occurs when fluid-entrained particles moving at high velocity pass through orifices or impinge on metering surfaces or sharp angle turns.

SOLENOID VALVE

Electromagnet with a moving core. It serves as a valve or operates a valve.

MAGNETIC BEARING

A type of bearing in which the force that separates the relatively moving surfaces is produced be a magnetic field.

VARNISH

When applied to lubrication, a thin, insoluble, nonwipeable film deposit occurring on interior parts, resulting from the oxidation and polymerization of fuels and lubricants. Can cause sticking and malfunction of close-clearance moving parts. Similar to, but softer, than lacquer.

INERTIAL FORCE

A force in a given coordinate system arising from the inertia of a mass moving with respect to another coordinate system.
