I just acquired an H-44 (bore 2.2.5; stroke 2.75) and it has just 4 studs on the cylinders, the carb flange is on the centerline of the engine, and there are no studs or flats on the exhaust ports. I ...

Jerry, thanks, all quite interesting. I'd guess they'd have to jack the tail up to wings level to install the valve covers. Tom

Jerry, fascinating stuff. Thank you for the great photographs. So the rocker arms and valve stems are lubricated only by by splash? How is the oil scavenged from this inverted engine? Thanks and keep ...
