    Air-cooled Deutz diesels are remarkably compact for heavy-truck engines. Here's a V6:

    And an interesting British site featuring Deutz swaps: http://www.magirusdeutz.co.uk/MD8deutz.htm

    I heard the Deutz air-cooled V8s in some of the buses in Athens: lovely sound!

    I like Ned Ludd's thinking going pretty far out there for stateside so it would be unusual for Americans but might be common place else where. so how is this for unusual A rooters/ commers TS3 "knocker" 3 cylinder six piston headless valveless supercharged 2 cycle truck motor. here is a link to on on youtube running with the side covers removed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-OqYFB4ofY&feature=related

    or new design old school and I mean real old steam power max tourque from 0 RPM like an electric motor get parts copper or brass plated to kind of go steam punk prewar look awesome economy and they are trying them in over the road trucks

    Love TS3s! Here's a somewhat comparable installation: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showpost.php?p=8103223&postcount=105

    You don't get far looking up Commer TS3s without running into Junkers and Gobron-Brillié:

    [​IMG]
    Junkers Jumo: no way it'd fit in an early Ford! They did make a smaller, horizontal bus engine that might, but I'd expect those to be rare as hen's teeth today.

    [​IMG]
    Edwardian Gobron-Brillié: not quite found under every bush either.

    All three are opposed-piston designs. The TS3 had pistons on both ends acting on rockers onto a single crank. The Junkers had two cranks geared together, which is elegant if bulky. The GB had conventional connecting rods for the lower pistons and tensile rods for the upper pistons, and an otherwise fairly conventional crankcase.

    Does it have to be that unusual? what about a hybrid motor?
    Traditionalists will hate me for this but here goes.
    http://www.superchevy.com/technical...sucp_0903_motown_ls_crate_engine/viewall.html

    MoTown create motor traditional SBC with LS top end and cam for better crank loading and a distributor drive in the block.
    @Ned Ludd Where did you find those photos!? I have only ever seen drawings of the junker little tall for a an automobile would definetley be an unusual motor. lots of guys get the blower, intake, carb and are soo pleased that " It is higher than the roof" that is definetley out there ha ha. Is that a collection some where in or near Cape town? I have only been there once waiting out the weather just hung out it the "duty free" area of the port.

    1903 Premier air-cooled engine with a total-loss oiling system. This would be hard to beat!

    Has anyone suggested 2 V8s end to end to make a V16? Or 2 V6s to make a V12?

    hahaha. what i love best about the early total-loss engines is that they were used in the days of 'gentleman racing' so the driver behind it would be decked out in a suit and tie.

    So you're suggesting that a Napier Nomad might not be entirely feasible? Bummer. It makes pretty good power for weight, since you get 3,150 hp out of only 3,580 pounds. ;)
