No valves, the cylinders are just open to the air at their base. Where's the fuel intakes, on the far side?

Is it a counter clockwise rotating prop when most propellors rotate clockwise (as seen from the pilots view)?

Good eye, but that wasn't what I was looking for. Back when that engine was built, there wasn't really any standards. European aircraft often had counter-clockwise rotating props. I think the Griffin powered Spitfires had CCW props, and the Merlin powered ones had CW turning propellors.

First, my apologies- it is a rotary engine, and you found the exhaust ports.

looks sad...
has a crank handle slot so is pretty old, any one recognize it?


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

No idea but it's got a robust sump. Cast? Tractor? Ford(son)?

Mike, my first thought when I saw this was, "How many cases of Brasso do they go through in a year?" Too much time in the Navy, I guess. LOL

LOL, yes I met the owner of the car, quite a character and very proud of his little Bugatti - and rightly so. A beautiful car, not overly-restored as so many are.

P.S. I once heard an old Navy sailor say that he was told “If it isn’t moving, either paint it or polish it!” Sounds like your experience was similar. :-)

REPOST to correct a bad photobucket thing from 4 years ago...

im SLOWLY catching all of them and getting rid of the bad links...

honestly, i dont know what this engine even belongs in but i took the photo at the Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg Museum in Auburn Indiana...


its not as flashy as 99.8% of everyone eles's but i like the repeating pattern of the exhausts (intakes?) and valve springs...

it would have been ideal if id had a tripod and been able to shoot at f16 or greater but at the time the 7D wasnt ideal at high ISO so i really didnt want to bump up high enough to get that kind of aperture and still be able to hand hold...

17-55 f2.8 with IS is a killer lens...
