The sweet old Commer Knocker - opposed pistons, central combustion chamber, rockers and rods and cranks and stuff - reminds me of an engine I have seen on a thread recently

Then of course - the Ariel "Square 4" motorcycle engine - 2 cranks

Why not a free piston enigne? - some of those are used in some high powered applications (No crankshaft - the pistons reciprocate on their own)

I believe cold war era mark 3 torpedos used a version of the free piston design. JP-10 fuel with built in oxidizer.

Cold War Era. Mark 3 has been around since 1895. Originally had 3 cylinder compressed air engine.

Wonder if we can put bowman rings on all three pistons to increase compression?

New engine...Now NEW engine concepts

I should have named the thread New engine concepts. It should be fine to post your remarks and add any engine idea. Hey most of us like engines and have many thoughts about them. Post away about any engine features & don,t be afraid to express what you think about any engines we may come up with on this thread. Please not too many videos expressing real goofy crap. Best Regards.
