Engine for Sale

A small engine was for sale with the owner asking for $475. It was free, had compression (after we operated the exhaust valve a few times), and was complete except for fuel tank. The gears were very worn and a small piece of iron was missing at the hub of the flywheel. The engine had no tag on it.

Other Engines

Dual Port Sliding Sleeve Engine

Here is an MPEG movie of a unique design in a 4 cycle engine. It has no valves, but uses dual sliding cylinder sleeves to move intake and exhaust ports. The engine was being demonstrated with the cylinder head off. The operation is difficult to describe, but can easily be seen. This movie is 1.44 MBytes.
