Default The two-stroke engine is simple in construction

The two-stroke engine is simple in construction, but complex dynamics are employed in its operation. There are several features unique to a two-stroke engine. First, there is a reed valve between the air-fuel intake and the crankcase. Air-fuel mixture enters the crankcase and is trapped there by the one-way reed valve. Next, the cylinder has no valves as in a conventional four stroke engine. Intake and exhaust are accomplished by means of ports - special holes cut into the cylinder wall which allow fuel-air mixture to enter from the crankcase, and exhaust to exit the engine. These ports are uncovered when the piston is in the down position
