Mating parts to achieve rotary, linear, and oscillating motions in a multi-part simple engine

Given a static display of the final assembly, assemble the parts files to match. Add mating conditions which will allow for the required motions. Finally, using the simulation tools display the total assembly in motion. Contributed by William Lindsay, North Carolina
