Don’t know how about a full stop.
a colon could be a problem

It was a horizontally opposed, wet-sump supercharged, two-stroke diesel engine.

@Marum 1007: Interesting. Not difficult to see how that works, except for one thing: Where TF did they put the output shaft?
Oh, wait- I’m still half asleep. Like a normal crankshaft, I suppose.
Yup, It uses bellcranks from the connecting rod to the crankshaft I think they called them “crankpins” or something. The idea is, that there is almost no side thrust on the pistons. Thus piston and cylinder wear is minimised. The opposed piston setup, makes the motor very compact and reduces parts. No cylinder heads valves etc. Using modern technology they can be made very light and very efficient. (Think 55 mpg +)(50% efficiency Vs 30%) The other way is to have two crankshafts. Then you can have a step- up gearing or a reduction gearing to the final drive. (Flywheel/propeller).… Read more »
