The Engine Museum has a Forest Edwards Twin Cylinder Supercharged Opposed engine in their collection. It was on display at Sky Harbor Airport Terminal 4 in Phoenix. There was a small handout that has a picture of the engine and this description:
"To maximize the horsepower, Forest Edwards equipped his twin-cylinder engine with his own custom-engineered supercharger, a device for raising the pressure in an internal combustion engine. This one-of-a-kind prototype runs on unleaded gasoline with spark ignition and a wet sump lubrication system. With its 1 3/4-inch bore and 1 1/4-inch stroke, the supercharged twin produces approximately 15 horsepower at 7500 revolutions per minute using a 24-16 propeller."
Does anybody know how to contact Mr. Edwards or know if he has any plans available for this engine? I've searched the internet high and low, and while I have the plans for his radial engine, this twin is the one I'd love to build. I wish I could post the photo, this is an engine that will literally make your mouth water.
Sadly, the Engine Museum website appears to be a little neglected, and they don't have most of their engines even pictured on the site. It seems to be a place to link to the Strictly I.C. site, and not much else.
Does anybody have any information that will help?
You should email Paul Knapp(engine museum) or Robert Washburn( Strictly IC) to see if they have contact information. Mike Rehmus(Model Engine Builder) is on this forum from time to time too.
