These "facts" would be a College Degree, I was stating that the Crankshaft should NOT be dipping into oil, there is a windage tray beneath the crankshaft inbetween the oil, the purpose of that is to stop the "wind" or air swirreling from the crankshaft to fill the oil with air bubbles. What I was stating is that if you overfill an engine the oil could go above the windage tray and the crankshaft could dip into the oil which would cause damage, I did not state that the crankshaft was designed to work in oil.
The transmission in a standard car is filled up about half way, there are gears in there which the fluid has submersed them at least half way, how the lubrication is done is when the vehicle moves the gears move (DURR) and splash the fluid up and lubricate around.. I didnt say anything about pump? and as Ccdel237 said the rear end is submersed, at least half way and works the same way as a transmission.
They only "gear" in a transmission that is spinning as fast as an engine is the input shaft which is attached to the clutch (should i go into how that works?) after that the gears are used to translate the engine speed into drivetrain energy to move the vehicle for certain speeds, get it?
So before you dismiss my information as some retarded bullshit, perhaps you should actually read what I wrote, and look some stuff up, good job
you're an idiot
Oh I just read you are working on a 110cc scooter engine, that's cute, how about you build a few drift cars and rebuild a couple V8's then come talk to me about engines.
