The Brothers wrote to several engine manufacturers with a request for an engine weighing no more than 180 pounds and capable of producing at least 8 horsepower. No one was interested in providing such an engine, so the Wright Brothers had to design and build their own. The four-cylinder Wright engine, built in their Dayton bicycle shop by chief mechanic, Charles Taylor, weighed slightly less than 200 pounds and developed 12 horsepower, or about twice the power of today's lawn mower engines.

It is a BMW V-12 block out of a 750il. I own one and talk about a fantastic motor. The faster you go, the harder it pulls.

I'll post more when it is clean.
Hey Sasquatch,

Here is your engine in a project from canada. This guy installed a BMW V12 in an Ultima GTR. Check out the video section. That engine sounds incredible at full song.




Link to the videos page, check out #4

well, except that a '6HP' lawnmower motor really can't output more than about 2-3 HP continuously, that 6HP is the instantaneous stall power. a 12HP aircraft motor actually DOES output 12HP continuously.

my 'mower' has a 20 yr old Briggs n Stratton industrial "8HP" motor. This is rated at 12.7 lb-ft torque @ 2500 rpm, which I calculate to be 6HP continuous. But this is a WAY more substantial motor than you'll find on the typical consumer lawnmower, its a 19 cubic inch vertical B&S from the old school.
