An engine must have some accessories in order to function. The complexity of accessories on an engine is determined mostly by its intended use. Some of the common accessories are described in other chapters of this book. Devices to dynamically balance the engine are described in chapter 5, “Engine Design.” Lubrication is used throughout the tractor and is covered in chapter 8. Electrical systems are also used throughout the tractor and are described separately in chapter 6.
