But try to wrap your head around that when you think of the troubles you had rebuilding a V8! All the stupid crap I wasn't expecting with an inline six flathead, how about a 28 cyl radial the size of a VW Bug!

You're correct. 56 valves. Also, if you start it wrong just one time you'll have a fun time replacing all 56 spark plugs.
