  • Lesser known parts of the vehicle

    As a PE/Health/Driver Ed teacher, I consider it my job to mess with my students 24/7, and make them constantly wonder if I am joking or serious. I am in the process of planning my Driver Ed curriculum for my students next semester and I am planning a lesson on the lesser known parts of the vehicle. Any suggestions?

    All I have is:
    knuton valve
    blinker fluid
    piston return spring
    horn volume knob
    wiper sharpeners
    header lock bushing
    interlocking transfer spanners
    Door Spanners
    O-pipe
    clutch belts
    exhaust booster
    710 Cap
    ......

    Any funny parts that I can use to mess with my students would be appreciated!

    Excellent!

    Anything from Star Trek (like dilithium crystal chamber), Back to the Future (Flux Capacitor) or Fletch (cannot remember right now, but it was in the airplane mechanic scene) would be good too.

      Dont foget the Flux Capacitor.

      But then again, it they thought the car had a flux capacitor, they may try to hit 88 MPH in the parking lot.

            Here's the best place to find your "Special Parts/Supplies", http://www.kalecoauto.com/

            The best product on the site is the Seasonal Tire Air, change it every 3000K miles or at the beginning of each season along with the filter.

            Everyone knows that temperature can have a great impact in your tire pressure. This is why you absolutely should use the correct air for your tires! For example, your car should usually have the tires set to 32psi. If you are using summer air in the summer, this is fine. However! If you use this summer air in the dead of winter, your may actually only be running at about 22psi! Each can will do one average sized tire. Sold in sets of 1 each.

                      Most vehicles on the road today have a loose connection between the seat and the steering wheel.

                        That's closely related to the loose nut behind the steering wheel.

                          Do me a favor- make sure to teach them to not be A-holes when they drive, teach them that a car or truck doesn't actually stop on a dime and how to estimate the time it will take for the oncoming car to reach their position. Also, throw some cantalopes against a brick wall, to show them what happens when a moving human body hits a stationary object (or vise-versa). Teach the traffic laws and beat safety into their heads- I'm sick of being cut off, merged into, nearly T-Boned/rear-ended/sideswiped and jerked around by kids who are two years out of driver's ed.

                          Tell them:
                          Lug nuts are tight when they reach .025" of bolt-stretch.
                          To make sure they rotate the air in their tires at least annually.
                          Liquid nitrogen is preferred for inflating their tires.

                            That'd be the "fetzer valve." There are at least seven of them, and they tend to stick. In order to fix it, first, you must prepare it with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads.

                            To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
