The English customary measuring system was established about A.D. 1100 in England during the reign of Henry I. The foot was determined to be 12 inches and was taken from the length of a typical foot. The yard (36 inches) was determined to be the length from King Henrys nose to the end of his outstretched hand. The mile came from Roman days and was originally defined as the distance traveled by a soldier in 1,000 paces or steps. Other English units, such as the pound (weight) and volume (gallon), evolved over the years from Roman and English measurements.

ENGLISH CUSTOMARY MEASURING SYSTEM The Fahrenheit temperature scale was created by Gabriel Fahrenheit (16861736) and he used 100F as the temperature of the human body, which he missed by 1.4 degrees (98.6F is considered now to be normal temperature). On the Fahrenheit scale, water freezes at 32F and water boils at 212F.

What Weighs a Gram? To better understand the metric system measurements, it is often helpful to visualize a certain object and relate it to a metric unit of measure. For example, the following objects weigh about 1 gram.

The word gauge means measurement or dimension to a standard of reference. The word gauge can also be spelled gage.

Therefore, in most cases, the words mean the same. Automotive Engines: Theory and Servicing, 7/e By James D.

2. 3. 4. 5. A tape measure or machinist rule can be used to measure linear distances. A micrometer can measure 0.001 in. by using a thimble that has 40 threads per in. Each rotation of the thimble moves the thimble 0.025 in. The circumference of the thimble is graduated into 25 marks, each representing 0.001 in. A micrometer is used to check the diameter of a crankshaft journal as well as the taper and out-of-round. A camshaft bearing and lobe can be measured using a micrometer. A telescopic gauge is used with a micrometer to measure

the inside of a hole or bore, such as the big end of a connecting rod or a cylinder bore. Automotive Engines: Theory and Servicing, 7/e By James D. Halderman 34 Copyright 2011, 2009, 2005, 2001, 1997 Pearson Education, Inc., Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458 All rights reserved. SUMMARY 6. 7. 8. 9. A small-hole gauge (also called a split-ball gauge) is used

with a micrometer to measure small holes such as the inside diameter of a valve guide in a cylinder head. A vernier dial caliper is used to measure the outside diameter of components such as pistons or crankshaft bearing journals as well as inside diameters and depth measurements. A feeler gauge (also called a thickness gauge) is used to measure the gap or clearance between two components such as piston ring gap, piston-ring side clearance, and connecting rod side clearance. A feeler gauge is also used with a precision straightedge to measure the flatness of blocks and cylinder heads. A dial indicator and dial bore gauge are used to measure differences in a component such as crankshaft end play (dial indicator) or cylinder taper (dial bore gauge).
