Compression - Two Stroke Cycle (Engine)
After the exhaust valve is on its seat (53 ATDC), the temperature and pressure begin to rise in nearly the same fashion as in the four-stroke engine. Figure 23 illustrates the compression in a 2-stroke engine. At 23 BTDC the injector cam begins to lift the injector follower and pushrod. Fuel injection continues until 6 BTDC (17 total degrees of injection), as illustrated in Figure 24.
