A film about back when Engines were Manly and Macho! This 16mm gem has a mouthy motor giving us his story, about how he continues to beat out the electrics and turbines, and how he works and gets improved. Great color and classic cutout style animation make this one from General Motors a classic 80's end-of-the-school-day film, even if much of it was made in the 70's. Enjoy!
This reel was transferred from my own 16mm archive print using my Eiki Telecine. The Eiki projects a 24fps print at 30 frames per second for a flickerless NTSC transfer. A special diffusion plate eliminates the 'hot spot' of the projector, and the sound is pulled right from the optical track.

    Wow
    I remember this they showed this to us in auto shop first day

    Meanwhile in Japan and Europe…

    3 cylinder engines, 10+ cylinder engines, and they were all spinning at more than 4800RPM(80*60) with more than 2 valves per cylinder and doing it more efficiently… lol

    We have 4 haters.
    Maybe it has something to do with the internal combustion engine?😂

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gordon Freeman says:

    There was a film about the wankel engine that I saw a few years back that was kinda similar to this. Do you by any chance happen to have that?

    I'm pretty shoure I watch this one in 8th grade shop class 1987

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Swick says:

    looks like many here want to go from the ox cart to the Jetsons space car without the evolution it takes to get from one to the other. I guess Fran you better get busy making that transporter from StarTrek.

    Old educational films can be incredibly informative. I learned electronics from army training films from the 40's and 50's. Outdated but very informative

    This old stuff takes you away back in time, thanks Fran, you've given me quite a few goodies you wouldn't believe

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Thomas says:

    It's great these old films are given a second chance….

    Watched it, thank you. Refreshed it to see what the views were, and we are now at 94 views, and 110 thumbs up.
    Congrats at breaking YouTube!

    The primary motivator of the transverse mounted front wheel drive power plant is COST. It is far cheaper to make and assemble the single front wheel drive unit than the rear wheel drive system.

    Sorry talking engine… no matter what you try to do, or WHAT you say in this propaganda film, you are STILL spewing carbon into the atmosphere.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Golem1 says:

    Only 25% of fuel moves car rest is wasted heat.
    So inefficient.
    Electric cars are here now.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars christian holmes says:

    sorry to say what a rubbish invention. what's the efficiency again? 😂 and we're still using it.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keri Szafir says:

    PWM controlled internal combustion engine with some complex feedback circuitry? Hmmmm… 🙂

    It's interesting to see how engines have evolved over the course of a few decades, but that also means they're way harder to repair. Plus with the oil reserves being used up, something might finally have to replace them. Electric motors are an obvious choice, but energy storage is a problem that still needs to be solved.
    I like how the engine's principle of operation is explained – really simple and clear 🙂
