I1.’ the recess I1 being ñlled with air or gases
from the crank end side of the piston. During
the exhaust stroke the piston A will stay in this
position with respect to the sleeve B until a
point, somewhat more than one-half the length
of the motion of the sleeve B is reached, when
the sleeve B will begin to slow down, the piston
i , A being atits highest rate of speed at this point>
withdrawn from the recess I3, this recess filling
with air and gases from the crank side.Y of the
piston-the piston A holding this position with
respect to the sleeve B up to a point somewhat
less than one-half the length of the stroke of the K
sleeve B.
During this time the inertia force act
ing in opposition to the motion of the sleeve B
decreases rapidly from a high value at the be
ginning of. the-suction stroke to zero -at a point
will tend to continue at this highest rate of speed,
and thus proceed ¿towards the head o-f the cylin 10 somewhat less than one-half the stroke of the
der at aA faster rate than the sleeve B.
Simultaneously, while this action of the piston
A is taking place, the air and gases in the recess
I1 are being compressed, ñrst lightly, to permit Y
the piston A to move freely, and then compressed»,
vmore strongly as the compressed gases'iail'to`
escape through the holes 24 as fast as theyßare
being compressed, thus checking the speed of the
piston A, an-d bringing it to rest, at the end of its
forward motion, at the same time that the sleeve`
B vcomes lto the end of its forward motion, and
thus contact is >made between the faces 21 and
28 of the sleeves B and I4, respectively, without
' This action of the piston A is the result of the
inertia lforces Aresiding in the Vpiston A.V As the
acceleration at_the beginning 'of the strokel is
high, theinertia force of the piston A holds it in
the position' it hadïat thejbeginningïof the stroke
sleeve B.
klí‘rom this point on, the inertia is again re
versed, acting now towards the crank end of the
piston, the sleeve B, through the motionrof the
crank and connecting rod, slowing up, while the
piston tends to continue at the same speed, thus
' ‘ the sleeve 2l'being withdrawn from the recess
I1_ whilethe sleeve 20 enters the recess I3, com
pressing the air and gases in the recess I3 and
similarly as in the exhaust stroke, bringing the
piston' A to rest without shock, with the face 25
in contact with vthe face2Iì.v The piston A comes
tothe end of its motion at the same time as the
sleeve 'B comes'to the end of its motion.V That
is, the piston A and the sleeve B come to Vrest
simultaneously, the piston A moving further than
the sleeve B bythe length of the clearance space,
which equals the length of theV motion of the
sleeve B inthe recesses VI3 and I1.
The_timing of the openingof the suction valve
until the inertia becomes zero at a point-a little 30
must -be such that as the- piston v'A leaves the

I claim:
In a gas engine having a cylinder and piston
rod, a piston with outer Walls engaging the in
ner Walls of the cylinder, a cylindrical sleeve 10
connected with the piston rod and reciprocable
within the piston for operating the same and
having annular end walls of substantial width,
cylindrical cups connected with the piston end
walls and shaped and positioned to form annular»
chambers for receiving the annular ends of said
sleeve, and two rings of apertures through the
Walls of both said cups, the apertures of the outer
ring in each case being of large diameter to
admit crank case gas and oil freely into said
annular chamber, and the inner ring apertures
in each case being very much smaller and being
positioned close to the inner ends of the annular
chambers to permit only sloW discharge there
from for effecting a strong cushioning action in
the transmission of the force of >reciprocation
of the sleeve in both directions to the piston.
