Siamese engines all right!



A double-twin because each of the four banks of eight cylinders could be clutched off!

Reg,

Keep your private e-mail tab open this afternoon - it's soon time for that tutorial.

C'mon then skwinty - throw something up.

PS - I could have answered your post about the Lightning.

Didn't ask here for fear of being off topic.
