I still can't get what stops you from making working prototype?
Even if you are poor and can't find sponsors, a Fiat126 engine is worth not much more than monthly wages?
I understand that machining is still costly, but looking thru the files, the project is decades old?
Completely I don't understand your questions. After all I have the done fully acting prototype of this timing gear on the engine Fiat 126 p .Ready to demonstration.If only responsibly to write the power what this prototype the power has, it after all it was necessary to make some of measurements on hload . Up to it I did this prototype in order to sie more about it learn.
But this knowledge is very expensive. I made my prototype of the engine 3 years, it is of about 1000 working days.(all design, software, making, and preview work with all regulations).
Now after visiting thread about the exchange of the gasket under head in Lotus, learn such a done work well can cost even 1000 pounds. So so-so I counted. I so for exchange presumably for one working day I would make it.
Sum , about 1.000. 000 Pounds are value this prototype, and this horse power value this engine.Of course it wasn't that's all simple, for example I had to undress and fold up this prototype of 15 times. I wore out starters of 8 pieces. How I already recalled of measurements he dynometer, the engine broke down - the lower part didn't keep waiting 10 times of greater loads, than the mass-produced engine for him. Shows it has become with polished rod on photo .It color has been changed on result of temperature on bearing on blue .Of course, at present everything is exchanged and the engine is sending for the demonstration of his work. By the way ,I don't know, where from you have information, I am poor ? .
I think that this project isn't decades old.
I think that this project is a "weather report" for one hundred next years .
4 strokes is all I ever need...
Yes, Yes, There is sole my car still, I own that and obvious I use it still
