I'll try to find it, it's pretty wild.

I'd be more worried about lack of out riggers and the car rolling over when you crank her over!

Yes I believe they used a British made Gnome Rotary Engine.

I would love to hear that Wasp! I have a number of municipal airports around me so planes are often flying overhead. When I hear a radial I am OUT THERE to see what it is. That Wasp, that must be an outrageous sound.

Thanks Bigdog, that is so wild. Ok guys, try to wrap your head around this for a minute. They had to collect parts for this motor, remember it has 28 pistons! It has 56 valves! I am presuming it is two per cyl.

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.

Now THAT is one cool engine. Don't think it would fit in my LeMans though.

Here is one of my favorites. Its a Detroit 24v71. It has 12 blowers and makes somewhere north of 3500 hp.
