    We ran to the sounds of thunder.
    We danced among the lightning bolts,
    and tore the R10's assfromunder.

    Here's one they don't have... the Commer 'Double Knocker' with opposed pistons. It's a diesel, very common in the fifties and sixties, sounded great labouring up the big hills with 25 tons on board...

    There's plenty of these in a thread called 'Oddball engines' in the Technical forum at the Atlas F1 site...

    <a href="http://www.atlasf1.com/bb/forumdisplay.php?forumid=8" target="_blank">http://www.atlasf1.com/bb/forumdisplay.php?forumid=8</a>

    And when that got too full of gifs and other pics, they started another thread... 'More oddball engines' I think that was called.

    Some crazy stuff in there!

    Thanks for the site info,

    I always thought engines were made with little leprachauns living in sub-standard conditions getting paid below award wages by capitalist car manufacturers to make things fail 1 month after the warranty expires, turning handles (commonly known as "crankshaft")to make the car go (commonly know as "move") drinking magical fairy juice (commonly known as "petrol"). cheers! These leprachauns are the reason why manufacturers claim ethanol is bad for engines as the leprachauns get bollocksed a_drink (commonly know as "pissed") and can no longer wreck the internals of your engine.

    Well thats what my mechanic said to me.

    actually the engine wouldn't run without the blower on there
    it was mainly put there so that they could get air into the engine
    the performance that came with it was a bonus
    there is a history on the commer knockers somewhere i'll see if i can find it
    i actually studied these motors as part of a tafe course once
    3 x '78 604 SL

    1 x '98 306 GTi6

    1 x secret project

    1 x '98 406 STDT troop carrier and i don't care if it stinks, i don't sniff it's arse Death by wank tank

    1 x '99 406SV 5spd wagon, time to burn more fuel

    1 x 1994 605 SV3.0

    Anyone going to that Atlas thread should pay particular attention to the Nomad engine... that was a doosy...

    A bit of reading, but it will fascinate you.

    I like the way the "left" conrod whacks into the side of the crankcase on each cycle! kewl!! Not true in practice though I am sure. Although perhaps that is part the reason they were called knockers.
