Eaton Corporation | Date: 2017-03-22

An anti-rotation guide for a lifter in an overhead valve valvetrain. The anti-rotation guide includes a plug having two lobes connected through a neck region. A first lobe of the plug is held within a bore in the lifter. The bore forms an opening at the edge of the lifter through which the neck of the plug emerges. The bore in the lifter accommodates a first lobe of the plug that is wider than the opening in the edge of the lifter, whereby the plug is shaped to prevent its slipping from the lifter through the opening. The lifter reciprocates in a first bore in the cylinder head. The second lobe of the plug extends outward from the lifter into a second bore formed in the cylinder head and adjoining the first bore. The second lobe reciprocates in the second bore and limits rotation of the lifter.

A hydraulic lash adjuster (HLA) and an arrangement for a valve train assembly comprising an HLA are presented. A valve train component comprises a first body that defines a first bore. The HLA comprises a second body that defines a second bore and a plunger. In use, a first end of the plunger is mounted within the first bore, and a second end of the plunger is mounted within the second bore for reciprocal sliding movement with respect to the second body. The second body and the plunger define a first chamber for containing a hydraulic fluid and the plunger defines a second chamber for supplying hydraulic fluid to the first chamber through a valve located between the first and second chambers in response to movement of the plunger increasing the volume of the first chamber. In use, all of the second body is located outside of the first body.

A valve train assembly (1), comprises: a valve bridge assembly, the valve bridge assembly comprising: a valve bridge (27); a first cavity (45) formed towards a first end portion of the valve bridge (27) and a hydraulic lash adjuster (HLA) (47) disposed within the first cavity (45) for engaging a first valve stem (29a). The valve train assembly (1) further comprises: a pivotally mounted first rocker arm (5, 7) for engaging the valve bridge (27) and pivoting in response to a rotating first cam to cause a first valve lift event in an engine cycle. The first rocker arm (5, 7) comprises: a rocker arm cavity formed within an end portion thereof and a control capsule (112) disposed within the rocker arm cavity, wherein the control capsule (112) is configurable in an ON configuration and an OFF configuration, wherein, in the ON configuration pivoting of the first rocker arm (5, 7) causes the first valve lift event and, in the OFF configuration, the control capsule (112) prevents the pivoting of the first rocker arm (5, 7) from causing the first valve lift event.

An internal combustion engine includes a cylinder head, a poppet valve having a seat within the cylinder head, a cam shaft on which is mounted an eccentrically shaped cam, and a rocker arm assembly comprising a rocker arm, a cam follower, and an electromagnetically actuated lash adjuster. The lash adjuster provides a continuously variable length fulcrum for the rocker arm. The actuator may be a piezoelectric stepper motor. The lash adjuster may be operative to vary a rate of internal exhaust gas recirculation and without requiring crank angle data.

A circuit interrupter includes an indicator apparatus having a pair of movable elements and a connection apparatus that enables the pair of movable elements to be cooperable. One of the movable elements is connected with an indicator element that indicates an OPEN and/or a CLOSED condition of the circuit interrupter. A pair of engagement structures are situated on the pair of movable elements and enable the pair of movable elements to be engageable with one another. A biasing element extends between the pair of movable elements and is configured to absorb some of the kinetic energy of a trip event, which resists breakage of the indicator apparatus. The indicator element changes states when the set of separable contacts are at a relatively small amount of separation and does not require the set of separable contacts to reach the end of their travel before changing state.

A coupling assembly arranged between an input shaft and a rotor shaft of a supercharger includes a first hub, a second hub, a first side coupling assembly, a second side coupling assembly, a central hub and a plurality of coupler pins. The first hub can be mounted with the input shaft. The second hub can be mounted with the rotor shaft. The first side coupling assembly can have a first side coupling body and a first side elastomeric insert. The second side coupling assembly can have a second side coupling body and a second side elastomeric insert. The central hub can define central hub bores therein. The plurality of coupler pins can be received in the central hub bores. The first and second side elastomeric inserts provide dampening between (i) the first side coupling body and the central hub and (ii) the second side coupling body and the central hub.
