I love discussios backed with opinions and no scientific data.
Think Im gonna re-discover what Otto and Ricardo did, hell, Who knows?

They might have both been wrong!!
Maybe, Boyle and Dalton were wrong too!
Do it dirty Biker,quit talking about i. You are burnin daylight!
That was an exellent article on long rod theory you reffered us to,at least one of these guys should read it, it will enlighten him,to say the least.
And PLEASE send pictures of aftermath!!
I would also like to see results of Dyno, better yet take the motor U.C.F. They've got the original Smoketron.
I also notice on the link Cobalt posted,the horsepower of this LONG ROD engine came in a lot earlier than what was it? 5501 R.P.M.
Time for word eatin for somebody here as it relates to another long rod post!!!
Funny the way things surface to the top and the s#OO sinks to the bottom.
Good reference Cobalt,I build all my motors with long rods.
If I could stuff a foot long rod in an s.b. I would do it!!!
