As Dylan (Bob, not Thomas) taught us, "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows."

Piston ring


Attachment rod


Push rod


Connecting rod

And if you thought it was unfair, confusing, or a waste of time, we'd like you to tell us that, too. And if you have an idea for a subject that you think would make a good future Brainteaser quiz, be sure to let us know.
