Here's a hint: It involves making very accurate plots of valve motion with a laser. I'll be done building this beast in about two weeks. It can go beyond 10K rpm if I am ATGATT.
You're channeling Mr. Yunick.

That would be true! The difference is that I'm doing it with a portable package. It's also a dyno so I'll be able to measure parasitic valvetrain torque. It will be a nice instrument for studying any OHC heads, including motorcycles.

There's a Ducati 749 head on the bench, just waiting for a shot. The fixture is also currently set up to run Ford Modular heads. I'll be building adapters to run pushrod heads in the near future as well.

Real Rotary engine

Not that Wankel thingy. A Gnome.


The cylinders rotate around the crank. The fuel/ air mixture travels through a pressurized crankcase, through the copper tubes to the intake valve.

Wow! Got that wrong! The intake valve is in the piston and opens by the vacuum generated on the intake stroke. The low pressure in the cylinder pulls the fuel/air mixture through the piston from the crankcase. The copper tubes must be exhaust.


More Here

That top photo's a different design. It's got intake and exhaust valves in the "head" with a rocker and pushrod.

For most of the World War One, rotary engines like the Le Rhone were the lightest available for a given horsepower. An improved version of the Gnome rotary, the Le Rhone featured nine cylinders rotating around a fixed two-piece crankshaft. Its costly design used nickel and special alloy steel cylinders around pressed-in cast iron liners, with copper inlet manifolds and intake/exhaust valves driven by a single pivoted rocker arm. With no carburetor or throttle, it was normally run wide open. To vary the speed, the ignition was intermittently cut via a "blip switch" on the control column.

Wondering if this should have been posted in old timey things instead.



Yes, it still runs on the crap gas in the tank.
