STANDARDIZATION of engine components should start in the drawing office. To ensure uniformity in regard to method of dimensioning and standardization of data and notes, a system of sample drawing may be used. For example, if a drawing is to be made of a connecting rod, crankshaft, piston, piston ring, and so on, the draughtsman should refer to a list showing the sample drawing number for each particular part. The drawing may be obtained from file and used as a guide in producing the drawing. Fig. 1 shows one of these lists. To guide the draughtsman in selecting the proper sample drawing, a remarks column is used with a description oi the part.
