See Through Engine – 4K Slow Motion Visible Combustion ( S1 • E1 )

Welcome to Warped perception. and I’m just going to jump right into it and
show you what we got. we have this L head Briggs & Stratton engine. with a transparent head that we build a few
months back. Good job Maddie. Wow it looks great. Yes. How old are you Maddy. Two. One two. 2 years old?. Thank you. Your turn. My turn?. Here you go thank you. For an ultra-high speed shoot we were doing
for vision research. we were showing the combustion process from
rich to lean. In ultra-high speed or Ultra slow motion. And the other day this video showed up in
my subscriptions feed of these guys. We’re here at our buddy John’s and he’s uncovering
the Oakland. That built something similar to the engine
that I built that I just showed you. Oh no we broke our flywheel that’s it for
that. And it reminded me of those clips. Now we’re going to burn a few different types
of fuel. The first one is going to be straight gasoline. The second is going to be rubbing alcohol
which a friend of mine Chris suggested. I really want to see the unburned exhaust
gases. Exiting the exhaust port. So I’m going to go ahead and remove the muffler
completely. Get some earplugs. And fire this thing back up. Ready to rock and roll. So that’s what the alcohol looks like. And after looking at the slow-motion footage. Seems like the alcohol kind of rinsed out
the cylinder. And cleaned up some of the soot from the gasoline. And interestingly enough. It was really weird. It was like the cylinder was full of liquid. It wasn’t even vaporized. The spark was still igniting it. Enough to push the Piston down and run the
engine. So it was kind of interesting. Not for this one I’m actually going to put
some safety goggles on. Because I’ve had some bad past experiences
with acetylene. Alright so what I’m going to do is I’m going
to start it up on the alcohol. And then add the acetylene. Which is going to be this one right here. Here it goes. That was the coolest thing ever. So I’m going to do that one more time. But this time. I’m going to turn the acetylene all the way
up. Full open. Because there’s so much soot coming out of
there. But I think we’re still going to be able to
see it. So let’s see that one more time With the high
speed camera. With the acetylene a hundred percent wide
open and almost no alcohol. Here it goes. Whoa what happened there let’s try that one
more time. But that put put that out. Okay here it goes one more time. Well it looks like we overdid it on the acetylene
a little bit. But props out to Kevin from the backyard scientist
for suggesting the acetylene. Last because now the head seems like it’s
completely unusable. I’m really curious to see if this engine will
actually run on tequila. That’s about it well that was a lot of fun
and I hope you enjoyed that episode. And the most important thing to me is that
you watch and enjoy our videos. I know the equipment that we use is out of
the reach of most of us. But the ideas are not. So if you have any ideas that you want to
see come to life. Just let us know. let us know in the comments or send us a message. And as usual. Tell us what you think in the comments below. Don’t forget to like share and subscribe. Oh and also. Let me know if you want to see this engine
run on tequila. And I’ll try it out I don’t know if it’s worth
it. Because the alcohol was kind of. Yeah I was kind of like looked like the inside
of a washing machine. But I will try it if you guys want to see
me try it. So let us know. Until next time adios

    And I found this channel, excellent videos 👍🏽 i think this early morning is gonna be loooooong

  15. kuba2ve says:

    What kind of glass was used for this? Or was it acrylic?

  16. Jack keong says:

    Indonesia mana suaranya..??

    Класс! Респект приятель!

  18. Sonac says:

    I'm so supprised plexiglass can take the pressure. Very interesting. I'd love to see an entire crank case made of plexiglass with a plexiglass cylinder head.

  19. Pixel Games says:

    What if you put baby lotion and water in it?

  20. Ali Llanos Berrios says:

    You should have looked at the video before you possed it. It's too dark and doesn't show the process clearly.

  21. Jhonatan Valencia Vasquez says:

    Por que la segunda vez que baja el cilindro se ve la chispa de la bujía pero no se ve la combustión?

  24. macthemec says:

    Run it on propane and move the spark on top of the piston to see how the flame front changes

  25. GN97 says:

    what material is the lid?

  26. Sam Ortiz says:

    Kinda cool cause the speed of light is faster than the speed of sound so you see the spark before you hear it.

  27. ClueLessgayMah says:

    1:10 that sound reminds of of a rikshaw🤪 or a chimchi🤣😂

  28. W.D Gaster says:

    Now I hope those nuts are torqued to spec. On second thought, the plastic would probably crack

  29. Andrew Houston says:

    Running it on oxygen would be a cool idea

  30. Denis K says:

    Отличный видос приятно смотреть

  31. StopFear says:

    Videos like this need more safety warnings.

  32. 000 000 says:

    So awesome

  33. Brian J says:

    why doesn't the acrylic get hazy and glazed over from the heat?

  34. sharon buynicki says:

    I like to know which one offers the most compression

  35. Stewie Griffin says:

    When he removed the muffler why didnt it caught fire by the sparks

    i would really like to see a see-through rotary engine…will the high speed camera keep up with the rpm? XD

  40. Aleksandr Monich says:

    Lol cute kid bro

  43. Rick Bergles says:

    One hopes and prays that you have foam or CO2 fire extinguishers near by.

    Precious baby…Those jowls were made for kissing

  46. crazy squirrel says:

    do another video with supplementing oxygen to the carb.

  47. Hayden Foutz says:

    make a little engine like that but a diesel one. I would like to see you run it on tequila.

  48. abdul rahim says:


  49. rz tech says:

    Good job

  50. a thing says:

    Phil swift be like: THATS A LOT OF SOOT!

  51. Harpo says:

    Was that straight acetylene or proper gas air mixture?

  52. Ronald Jacobs says:

    cool. How about Hydrogen gas and Hydro-Oxy gas mixture

  53. Ronald Jacobs says:

    The Alcohol you used is 91% so you had 9% water which is quite a bit. Ethanol fuel is 99.9% Alcohol. Denatured Alcohol found at hardware stores is also a lot closer to 100% than the 91% stuff. Also Even the 91% stuff would run massively better if metered by the carb instead of pored in. your running super rich. very fun to watch!

  54. Amaroq Starwind says:

    Diesel, Nitromethane, Natural Gas and Hydrogen would also probably look awesome in this engine.

  55. Bonsai Man says:

    Only fat american can make this video 8 mins long

  59. Afonso Mendes says:

    Very cool. The isopropanol powering seemed a bit out of control right? Also the engine head started to crack! T

  60. MARCO SERNA says:

    has hecho la prueba con E-100 ethanol?

  61. Olistuntridin says:

    Plsssss with 2 strokeeee

  62. Gaming zone 008 says:

    A heart 💓for the little scientist 💓🔥🔥😘

  63. Alansar Trignot says:

    And so they have multiple of these in cars to make them go faster… right??

  64. Jianwei Liao says:

    Waiting for a diesel version

  65. Александр Иванов says:

    У нас заливают все что горит)

  66. no Name says:

    Elektrik motor

  67. Andras Libal says:

    There is a spark after exhaust venting? I though only every 2nd stroke needs that … interesting. 
    Maybe it is easier to build it like this, having a spark before every downward motion.

  68. Spoutnik says:

    Fuel is not supposed to be Sprayed to be compressed instead of direct liquid ?

  69. Shree Vatsa says:

    Please do try on Diesel engine..

  70. FlOsCh says:

    Awesome 👍😉

  71. Tobi Bobi says:

    Can you try with glass?

  72. Darren Croghan says:

    very cool to see it! i had an idea of what goes on in a piston head, but seeing it makes it more understood. Thanks!

  73. Antony Moran says:

    next time try it with oxy on as well it should stop the soot but it may blow the head off ''good stuff ''

  74. Guido Sarducci says:

    that was pretty cool. gave like & a sub too. good post

  75. Luke Becker says:

    Thats awesome

  76. Luke Becker says:

    3:06 looks like it is flooded

  77. crzde says:

    the sound when explosives ignite is real or edited?

  78. Angie Troy says:

    Great show , make it run on fumes

  79. misturax says:

    Muito legal. Parabéns

  80. Serg Rep says:

    Great, thnks. Also, lpg, cng, diesel probably should try to flame

  81. Aanantharam Surya 247 says:

    Use isopropyl alcohol

  82. Edward C Tullis says:

    What about natural gas?

  83. Jon Young says:

    1:58 why o we get an ignition after the exhaust but before the fuel has entered?

  84. Seigfried Gustafson says:

    Why does the spark plug go off at the end of the exhaust stroke?

  85. Sándor H. Szabó says:

    What say your daughter at 00:28 ?? 👀👀

  86. Bobby Phillips says:

    When you are going to be experimenting with fuels that you have little or no experience with,wear your safety glasses….while standing behind a safety wall.

  87. Mitch Burk says:

    Wasted spark on exhaust stroke?

  88. Berndt Lindström says:

    wonderful to see such skill and knowledge. Gives me hope for the future. Thank you and greetings from Sweden 👍

  89. Simon s says:

    Jeezus that flame front moves so much faster with the oxyacetylene

  90. D Tom says:

    I’d like to see the engine run on all the bloviating hot air spewed by our congressional politicians! Perpetual motion! Enough energy to fuel a large city!

  91. iare19 says:

    So alcohol doesnt ignite every turn? Mixture problems? Explain pls someone.

  92. Imda Mann says:

    Cool or I should say hot !!

  93. Archie says:

    People take for granted internal combustion engines. Not me. I've been in awe of them for 45 years and still am. They are one of the most incredible, almost magical inventions ever devised. That you can harness and control explosions and channel that energy to propel vehicles is amazing. The force of the combustion just to drive the piston down the cylinder is amazing enough but then when you think there still has to be enough residual energy for the piston to turn a crankshaft, which in turn turns the driveshaft, which in turn still has enough force to turn the vehicle wheels propelling a vehicle just boggles the imagination. Then add on top of all this the durability and reliability of internal combustion engines, especially considering they hold together under such stress from the non-stop controlled explosions and you have for me a head-shaking miracle.

  94. reverse thrust says:

    Do it with a turbine engine?

  95. Nathan Nolan says:

    I'm a small engine mechanic and never in my 5 years of working on these have I or has any mechanic actually gotten to see what he's really fixing and what's really going on in those chambers until now. This is amazing.
