Newcombe's Konig used a longitudinal flat 4 cylinder 2 stroke outboard motor with belt driven rotary valves mated to a Norton Manx gearbox. Here is the motor, note the belt turning 90 degrees from the side to the rotary valves on top. He actually won a race and finished second in the championship on this thing in 1973!?
