[This] engine is conventional, though novel. Don't expect high efficiency.

ANY engine that has a standard crankshaft rod type system by
design will have very poor efficiency. The percent of force that the
effective cylinder applies to the piston that can be converted to
toqure is less than 20% max point with an over all mean of less than
7%. This factor is why standard engine designs have not been able to
improve. Rotory design offer some improvment with other problems but
even then most design convert less than 25% of the applied force to
the load. Turbo engines can convert 50% of applyed force but the open
combustion is the problem there.
My engine called the Dmannd Engine has a mean conversion rate of
over 90%. It is a very advanced form of the Bourke engine design.
Being a two cylinder op engine with yoke drive crank system.
On Oct. 7, 2005, NEC member, Congress:Advisor:Kenneth M. Rauen responded to Douglas Mann:
: Nonsense. Engines have been tested by the thousands that achieve 30% absolute efficiency. This is far above your 7 and 20% mechanical transfer figures.
