This engine doesn't convert from 2 to 4cycle. It can be built either way.


I'll give you guys one last hint.


Blow torch.

It has a ignition system that may use a spark plug or may not.
It can be either a 2cycle or 4cycle. So it has valves or can operate using ports.

Go back and look very closely at the beginning of the short video. You can see it's secret towards the top of the engine.

This is old technology but is still used today.

Sound great, doesn't it?

You might be thinking of the African Queen. Hepburn at the tiller and Bogie kicking the bejesus out or the boiler.

Think ships and oil fields.
