Will this fit in my P51/

A guy built a 12 cylinder diesel engine that runs and fits in the palm of a hand. It took him over 2,000 hours to make, so I donít think you can count his labor - it would be over $100,000.00 for a table warmer. But still pretty cool : This is not CNC technology; this guy made everything at home on his lathe and drill press. Took 1,220 hours to make the 261 pieces.

Note the end-loaded crankshaft into the block (like an Offy), 12 individual cylinder heads, TINY rods and pistons, dual "under head" cams with pushrods to rockers in the heads.
And, he did break-in runs using an electric drill driving the crankshaft.

Even if you're not an engineer, you'll love this!
(If you can translate the titles that would be great but it isn't really necessary)

Life is either a daring adventure...
...or nothing.

Re: Will this fit in my P51/

I question if it is a true, running engine. Did anyone notice that the cams are timed 1:1?

Now credit where credit is due, it is a wonderful piece of work.

Re: Will this fit in my P51/

I now notice the cam drives at 1 to 1 as you did Dave. On the test stand it appears as if he is running it on perhaps compressed air? I see no signs of exhaust smoke or a fuel system. He's probably working on that as we type. None the less it is quite the machining accomplishment.

Re: Will this fit in my P51/

This video has been around for some time now. It has no forms of carburetion or ignition and is reaction driven by compressed air. Amazing that it moves and is so small, but is not technically a motor any more than a kid blowing on a paper pinwheel calls it a "motor"

if you want a REAL working scale motor, check this out
+ YouTube Video

Conley has also been making functioning scale model motor kits. Now THAT is something you should put in your P-51
