I remember seeing something similar many years ago - developed by an australian and called a barrel engine.

Don't think much of their comparison photo - they show a big cummins diesel - a mazda wankel and their own engine as being equal. i would like to see the wankel power a trawler!!!

Wish i could remember the Ozzie engine - the barrel one was invented in the 1920s - the engine I am thinking of was much newer - all crankless designs though.

I love this sort of stuff.

Was talking to an old guy I use for blast cleaning the other day about Sleeve engines and Diesel aero engines. How sad is that?

I hope its more reliable than Mazda's rotary engine in the RX-8 which suffers from what Mazda describe as "Engine over fuel - non start" problem! Apparently "their unique engine design" is that it must reach full operating temperature before turning off. Failure to do this (e.g. a short journey or just swapping cars round in a car park/driveway) means next time you turn the key it fails to start - and ends up going back to Mazda for some sort of ECU fix...

...thats after over 20 years of billion-dollar-company development.

The early Mazda rotary was only fit for about 35,000 miles, then had to be striped and have rotor tips renewed, they also burnt out all 'o' rings if over heated.

Not quite - right about most of it but you do not need the ECU fixed - you just wait for the petrol to evaporate!!!

A small price to pay for driving such a great car - I had one for a few weeks.Much better than a 350z - hope to get another soon.

My old English tutor always said

"boys who are bored do not have enough brain power to invent something useful to do"

I thought it was only teenagers who got bored anyway.

Being bored is a big pet hate of mine as you have to have a pretty sad life to reach a state where you are prepared to sit and do nothing about it.

I dare say some of the things that interest you Chris would not interest me.
