Hmmm...

Anyone notice anything 'different' about that engine...
Hint: Look at individual parts and configurations...

Definitely a custom job.

Allen started with two Pratt&Whitney 1340 jugs and hand built the crankshaft , connecting rods and the motor case.
He built wooden patterns and cast the Al case himself.
I will try to dig up some pictures of the bike he built to fit that motor too.
Five Liters = 305 and change cubic inches.

Yes, Gator caught it... :)

Those are jugs from an aircraft radial...

In my younger days, as an A&P, worked on those engines.

Interesting idea, never seen anyone build an engine with aircraft 'jugs' before.

I knew before I even watched the video that this was not here in the states. We just don't seem to breed that kind of imagination / skill anymore.
Economy?, Schools?, culture?. Who knows, but it's sad.

Here is a short video of the crank assembly that he built.
The flywheels weigh 150Lbs.
