      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Gaskets, seals, and O-rings all perform the vital task of sealing the engine. Gaskets are used to create a tight seal between two or more engine components, preventing leaks of fluids or gases. Seals are used to prevent the leakage of fluids or gases between stationary and moving parts of the engine. O-rings are specifically designed to create a seal in a circular groove, preventing leaks in various engine components. Therefore, all of these components are essential for maintaining the integrity and efficiency of the engine's sealing system.

    Which of the following statements is not correct?

    • A.

      All metals are elastic

    • B.

      Cut bolt threads are 30 percent stronger than rolled threads

    • C.

      Torque is a function of friction

    • D.

      Proper use of torque will avoid a yield condition

    Correct Answer
    B. Cut bolt threads are 30 percent stronger than rolled threads
    Explanation
    The statement "Cut bolt threads are 30 percent stronger than rolled threads" is not correct. In reality, rolled threads are generally stronger than cut threads. Rolled threads have a greater tensile strength and fatigue resistance due to the compressive forces applied during the rolling process, which helps to align the grain structure of the metal. Cut threads, on the other hand, can have uneven surfaces and may introduce stress concentrations, making them weaker compared to rolled threads.

    Which one of the following gaskets is not used on certain engines?

    • A.

      Valve cover gasket

    • B.

      Cylinder head gasket

    • C.

      Exhaust manifold gasket

    • D.

      Oil pan gasket

    Correct Answer
    C. Exhaust manifold gasket
    Explanation
    The exhaust manifold gasket is not used on certain engines because some engines do not have an exhaust manifold. The exhaust manifold is a component that collects exhaust gases from multiple cylinders and directs them into the exhaust system. Engines that do not have an exhaust manifold, such as some rotary engines or certain designs with integrated exhaust manifolds, do not require an exhaust manifold gasket.

    Bolt torque is a function of:

    • A.

      Tension

    • B.

      Torsion

    • C.

      Friction

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Bolt torque is a measure of the rotational force applied to tighten a bolt. It is influenced by tension, which is the stretching force on the bolt, as well as torsion, which is the twisting force. Friction also plays a role in determining bolt torque, as it affects the resistance to rotation. Therefore, all three factors - tension, torsion, and friction - contribute to the overall bolt torque.

    A damaged bolt should be:

    • A.

      Repaired with a tap

    • B.

      Repaired with a die

    • C.

      Discarded

    • D.

      Both B and C

    Correct Answer
    C. Discarded
    Explanation
    A damaged bolt should be discarded because repairing it with a tap or a die may not fully restore its strength and integrity. A tap is used to repair damaged female threads, while a die is used to repair damaged male threads. However, if the bolt is significantly damaged or weakened, it is safer to discard it and replace it with a new one to ensure proper functionality and prevent potential failures or accidents.

    Technician A says two extremely smooth surfaces do not require gaskets or sealants when they are fastened together. Technician B always uses new gaskets and never reuses old ones. Who is correct?

    • A.

      A only

    • B.

      B only

    • C.

      Both A and B

    • D.

      Neither A nor B

    Correct Answer
    B. B only
    Explanation
    Technician B is correct. While Technician A's statement about smooth surfaces not requiring gaskets or sealants may be true in some cases, it is not always the case. Gaskets and sealants are used to ensure a proper seal between two surfaces, regardless of their smoothness. Technician B's practice of always using new gaskets and never reusing old ones is a good practice as gaskets can degrade over time and may not provide an effective seal if reused. Therefore, Technician B's approach is more reliable and recommended.
