Hi all,

I've allways loved things which moves from their own power, make noises and smells, that's why I'm here and why I became a engine engineer.

My oldest engine is from 1969, that's not really old, but at least I've got the surrunding car. I.love the sound of slow running diesel engines like deutz 545, and I facinated by unusuall or forgotten tecnical approaches.

Hope to find a lot of intresting stuff here

Dominink

Welcome to the stak. But I must warn you that you can catch the old iron sickness from us. After just a short while around us and you will have to have an antique engine. Just one and there is no known cure. You will never have enough. You will want to sit around hear them run. Bill K

Thanks for the nice welcome!

I allready felt in love with a continental A40 flight engine and I was really close to by it... I even started to design my own flathead design...

BTW, recently l found out that Fairbanks Morse is still offering opposed piston engines, I really need to have one!

@ Thomas: Von Aachen aus ist es zwar ein Stueck kuerzer, aber dummerweise muss man immer den Umweg ueber Frankfurth nehmen, das war wahrscheinlich immer der Grund warum ich es erst einmal nach USA geschafft habe. Dabei bin ich auch nur bis New York gekommen, zaehlt das ueberhaubt?

Lf you have ever heard the saying if you have seen one you have seen them all. Well that does not work with fairbanks. It should say if you have one you want them all. Bill K
