Title: Linkage device of internal combustion engine

Abstract: A linkage device of a V-type internal combustion engine rotates a pair ofdrive shafts for changing openings of swirl control valves. The linkagedevice receives reciprocating motion from an actuator through a rod. Acenter lever connected to the rod changes the reciprocating motion toswing motion and transfers the swing motion to right and left links. Theright and left links are connected to the drive shaft through right andleft levers, respectively. The right and left links and the right and leftlevers change the swing motion to rotational motion and apply therotational motion to the drive shafts.
