French term or phrase: axe de distribution...chemises...joints de chemise...attelages...segments...
Once again, the context is a quality assurance checklist governing the assembly of an internal combustion motor for a backup power generator.

AXES ET PIGNONS DE DISTRIBUTION
In the section entitled "Distribution," one instruction is for the "montage des axes et pignons de distribution." My proposed translation is "Assemble distribution axles and pinions."

BARRE TRANSVERSALE DE COMMANDE D'INJECTION: injection control crossbar??

CHEMISES
The original document has a whole section on "chemises." Are these sleeves? jackets? Are we dealing with water jackets to cool the cylinders?

JOINTS DE CHEMISE: sleeve gaskets?

ATTELAGES: couplings?

SEGMENTS
In the section on "attelages," one instruction says, "Vérification de la position des SEGMENTS." Are these piston rings?

FREINAGE DES ATTELAGES. Are we braking couplings here?

JOINTS DE PASSAGE DU TIGE DE CULBUTEUR
This appears in a section on cylinder heads. I propose translating it "tappet stem passage gaskets." Qu'est-ce vous en diriez?

JOINTS DE PASSAGE D'EAU: water passage gaskets?
