The camshaft is driven by a chain, a belt, or gears. REMEMBER: The sprocket or gear on the crankshaft has half as many teeth on it as the cam sprocket or gear. This is because the camshaft turns 360° (one turn) during one four stroke cycle, whereas the crankshaft turns 720° (two turns). Cylinder rows, called banks, are determined from the flywheel end of the engine. A complete engine assembly including the heads is called a long block; without heads it is called a short block. The crankcase houses the crankshaft and bearings.
