I have to see one of these things in person some time, what a work of art. At the Dream Machines show in Half moon bay there will often be a guy with a "Johnny popper" motor that stands about 15 feet tall. He brings it on a lowboy flatbed trailer towed by a Peterbuilt semi, it's THAT big. And yes, it looks exactly like the little ones that will also be there.

Absolutly cool, loved the smoke rings (lost art?).

Did it seem like the middle cylinders were rich? At times it seems like only two cylinders are firing (dispalcement on demand system?).

I have no photos, and I only saw the engine run one time back in the late 50's.

My great uncle Harry built an engine in the late 19-teens. He had a working model which I saw run as a small boy.

He was issued US Patent 1350880 on Aug 24, 1920

My father was executor of the estate when uncle Harry died. At that time the motor was stored in a wooden box in Harry's work shop and conveniently disappeared.

I had been promised to get the motor by uncle Harry.

Dad did give me the original patent papers which are framed and hang on a wall here.

The working engine, I don't know who hi graded it, but I do believe it was a relative.

This is a link to the patent http://www.freepatentsonline.com/1350880.pdf

That is friggin wild, I wonder where the motor is at, in some collection of cool stuff somewhere, in a metal pile rusting out behind a barn? Who knows but it is a damn shame you don't have it. I wonder if you gave that patent to one of these small engine guys who make them from scratch if they couldn't make you one. I lot of those guys are in to it because of the shear passion of it. I would bet there is a guy out there who would build it for free.

I sure wish it was setting in my living room where it belongs.

Harry received the patent in 1920, in the following years he continued to work on the engine and in the fateful year of 1929 he formed Osborne Motor Works and was trying to get financial backing to go into production. The rest is a history of "what if".

At this point I am just glad to have the Patent papers, a bit of family history, and a cool story to share.

I like the idea of having one made, even if it was smaller than the original. What size was the original, anyway?

Post your favorite Engine

Gents;
I have a 150 hp Marine Mercury Out Board power head.
It now has a EFI.
Being a 2 cycle, it can be mounted in any position (verticle, or horizontal).
I am mounting it in a VW.
This engine Dynos at 380 hp @ 10,000.
Red shows up around 14k.
This was a 1/4 mile Boat racing engine. It has won its class several times.
I have been racing for very many yrs.
You can only do so much with a Small block or Big Block.
You simply run out of RPMs. Your skills are what wins.
Anyway,,, I want to see what can be done with
Very little Weight and very many RPMs.
Happy Trails
bob

Its the #40 Turbine car that Parnelli Jones drove in 67 500. Andy Granitelli in the photo. He came within 3 laps of winning that year when a $10 bearing failed.

LOLOL, I didn't notice the dude in the suit! That is obviously a vintage photo. I thought it was just shot by you somewhere.
