English term or phrase:parent bore block
Following earlier practice, a parent bore block was used to achieve minimum length and maximum rigidity but many of the engine’s features were novel at the time. The valve gear and the fuel injection pump, for example, were driven off the crankshaft by a toothed rubber belt rather than a chain. Also, the undersides of the pistons were cooled by oil jets, a system previously only used in much bigger engines.
