Beim Bremsen wird die kinetische Energie in die Wärmeenergie umgewandelt, die durch Reibung zwischen der zusammen mit dem Rad rotierenden Bremsscheibe und dem fest montierten Bremsbelag entsteht. Das Betätigen des Bremspedals bewirkt, dass die Bremsbeläge an die Bremsscheibe gedrückt werden. Im Laufe der Zeit wird die Belagstärke immer geringer und daher ist es notwendig die Bremsbeläge sowie Bremsscheiben regelmäβig gegen neue auszutauschen. Abgenutzte Bremsscheiben verursachen Fahrzeugschwingungen, Hochfrequenz-Quietschen und andere störende Geräusche. Mit zunehmendem Verschleiβ sinkt die Leistungsfähigkeit und Fahrkomfort, der Bremsweg verlängert sich gravierend. Bremsscheiben und Bremsbeläge von Brembo sind nach ECE-R90 Norm geprüft. BREMBO ist ein weltweit führendes Unternehmen in der Entwicklung und Herstellung der höchsten Qualität von Bremsanlagen und ist Erstausrüster bei vielen renommierten Autoherstellern.
The photos in this edition are black and white. The Mark IV Chevrolet big-block, made from 1965 to 1976, produced legendary performance and is one of the greatest big-blocks of all time. This design was a giant performance leap ahead of the old Chevy wedge big-block. The Mark IV featured canted valves, large intake ports, and an efficient head design for vastly increased air/fuel flow, better combustion, and huge horsepower. With a big-block under the hood, the Camaro, Chevelle, Corvette, and other Chevys became some of the most desirable ultra-high-performance cars of all time. How to Rebuild the Big-Block Chevrolet covers the best techniques for rebuilding the renowned 366-, 396-, 402-, 427-, and 454-ci big-block engines. With exceptional clarity and insightful detail, this book explains engine removal, disassembly, parts inspection, selection of machine work, initial and final assembly, tuning, and break-in. Through 500 photos and extremely detailed instruction, each step-by-step procedure explains professional techniques for rebuilding these engines. In addition, high-performance upgrades are covered as well as torque specs for major components, setting cylinder firing order, main bearing cap torque sequence, and much more. This volume provides an unparalleled level of information for rebuilding a big-block Chevy, so your rebuild project is hassle-free and successful.
The photos in this edition are black and white. From factory drag racing, to the AC Cobra, to the legendary Mustang, the history of the Ford big-block is a long and storied one. Making its debut in the late 1950s, the Ford FE big-block engine sat between the fenders of factory lightweights, Cobra Jet Mustangs, 427 Cobras, Cougar Eliminators, Talledega Torinos, and Mach 1s. While the FE engines remained in production through the mid 1970s, mostly in light-truck applications, Ford had plans for a new engine on the horizon. In the late 1960s, Ford transitioned the FE big-block out of production in passenger cars and performance applications in favor of an all-new design, called the 385 series, also known as Lima big-block. Originally used in luxury-car applications, the 429-cubic-inch version of this engine found its way into performance applications such as Mustangs and Torinos starting in 1971. The high-compression 4-barrel versions, called Cobra Jet or Super Cobra Jet, are some of the most powerful engines Ford has ever produced. An engine similar in design to the Lima series engine, the legendary 351 Cleveland made its debut in 1970. While technically a small-block in many ways, its oval ports, canted heads, and physical size made people think of it more as a mid-block than a small-block. The 351- and 400-cubic-inch versions (the latter known as M series engines) of the Cleveland engine were used in passenger car applications and in light trucks starting in 1975. The M stood for modified, as the deck height, bearing sizes, as well as pistons and connecting rods were modified for low-compression passenger car and light truck use, and they were used all the way through the early 1980s. All three engines are covered in full detail in this Workbench series rebuild volume. Included are step-by-step heavily illustrated instructions, that walk you through the entire process of rebuilding your Ford engine. If you want to breathe new life into your tired old Ford engine, this is the book for you.
When we think of Detroit, we think first of the auto industry and its slow, painful decline, then maybe the sounds of Motown, or the long line of professional sports successes. But economies are made up of people, and the effect of the economic downfall of Detroit is one of the most compelling stories in America. Detroit: A Biography by journalist and author Scott Martelle is about a city that rose because of the most American of traits - innovation, entrepreneurship, and an inspiring perseverance. It’s about the object lessons learned from the city’s collapse, and, most prosaically, it’s about what happens when a nation turns its back on its own citizens. The story of Detroit encompasses compelling human dimensions, from the hope it once posed for blacks fleeing slavery in the early 1800s and then rural Southern poverty in the 1920s, to the American Dream it represented for waves of European immigrants eager to work in factories bearing the names Ford, Chrysler, and Chevrolet. Martelle clearly encapsulates an entire city, past and present, through the lives of generations of individual citizens. The tragic story truly is a biography, for the city is nothing without its people. Scott Martelle is a former Los Angeles Times staff writer and author of three books of nonfiction. He has covered three presidential campaigns as well as postwar reporting from Kosovo. He is the cofounder of the Journalism Shop, a book critic, and an active blogger. He lives with his wife and children in California. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Hughes. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/004893/bk_blak_004893_sample.mp3.
