WELCOME BACK TO: THE SIX STROKE ENGINE - SPECIFICATIONS 15 FEB 2011

 

My original cylinder head invention and early Beare engine prototypes have of recent years been undergoing much redesign & revision, I plan to post revised and complete specifications, as soon as prototypes based on my latest specification/inventions have undergone mandatory patent registration, official trials, and testing.

Meanwhile, please see below specification postings based my early development Beare Ducati prototype.

Thank You.

Malcolm Beare
