In an engine configuration the two cylinder outputs are arranged at quadrature, 90 degrees apart on a crankshaft. Notice how the connections between each valve and its cylinder are opposite ways round for the two cylinders.
The 3/2 valve switches deliberately have a large “off” region in the middle. However, it is wasteful when it comes to making engines. A faster engine may use trapped pipes instead of the 3/2 valve switches. This means the throw of the “valves” is much smaller.The variable pneumatic system allows a pneumatic cylinder to be controlled to any position in its range, not just the end-stops. The use as a steam engine is at an early stage of development. The wheel coupling rod drives the lower rod. A cog connection from there, with an angle added or subtracted from the reversing lever, drives the upper rod. The difference provides the offset to the valves, which the system will respond to in the change of air power to the cylinders, providing a reversing function similar to some real steam engines. Can a jet engine get started and run on only compressed air?

Why do you have to create the mirror image of what you just made in lego mindstorms?
This generation is characterised by single port pneumatic cylinders and the more complex plumbing including a three port distribution block with a pressure and vacuum outlet port. These pressure and vacuum lines ran to a switch to provide pressure for extension or vacuum for retraction of the pneumatic cylinders. The old cylinders and pumps were discontinued. Over the years, several new pieces were introduced in this line as well. The new pump was spring based, and could only be operated by hand, which limited pneumatic power to how fast it could be manually pumped. This obviously limited the power of pneumatic circuits. This made it much easier to use in studless construction. Generation three pumps are now available in translucent blue. Pumps are the primary source of air in a pneumatic circuit. When ports are connected, air will freely travel through the valve between those two ports. Lego pneumatic tubing almost always comes with sets in an uncut form, and are required to be cut into smaller pieces using scissors. The leftmost port could only have air going into it, no air would ever come out. The right port could only have air coming out of it, no air could go into it. Lego pneumatic projects usually include a compressor made from a combination of a lego electric motor and pneumatic pump, together with a pressure switch which will activate the motor when greater pressure is required. The pneumatic elements are most commonly used to resemble and take the function of hydraulic cylinders in appropriate models, actuating a digging arm or crane, for example. They can, however, also be used to build a pneumatic engine, which converts air pressure into rotary motion using the same principles as a steam engine. However, the cylinders are not optimised for this purpose, and such engines tend to be slow and lack power unless the cylinder inlets are enlarged. Because a slight delay is involved between increased pressure and cylinder movement, various feedback loops can be used whereby one pneumatic component can activate another in a series of mechanical events. Lego pneumatics can be configured in such a way that electronic circuits can be replicated. These circuits can then be combined to create digital computers.
