so i was at work were i repair l oxygen equipment, and our homefill pumps look like 5 cyl radial engine. after about starring at it for 15 minutes i came up with the idea of a R10 radial engine with twin banks using cag heads and even using twin superchargers to pressurize the crankcase(1 sc for bank) probably will need a ultra tough clutch but it may trump the 3 engine cag!

I still like the guy that took 2 Cag engines, side by side, and made a piece that locked the 2 cranks together 180 degress apart, so it was like a two cylinder engine. I would love to do that, and then maybe one set behind the other, or a 4 cyld.

It was about 2 years ago on another site, some people were talking about it here. Can't remember if they brought the pics here, or I had to go look somewhere else. If you made a shaft between engines, with the key slots 180 degrees apart, and had a left hand thread on one side and a right hand thread on the other side, and you could tie it together at the center, it might work, and you can keep the left clutch and right flywheel intact.
