stretch the tongue   it is much easier to do  grin

on the v-7 and v-6  just pull the push rods and make air springs out of the dead holes  should have way less than 1% parasitic loss

A test mule motor is a real hard engine to build.  It needs to provide consistent performance throughout the test session.  Otherwise, the motor degradation fouls up the test results.  It is hard to differentiate between motor problems and tested component issues.  The Duttweiler shop knows the Chevy engines well.  Logic says their mule motor might be a good build.  This one survived just under 200 dyne pulls without performance degradation.  A link to the article www.hotrod.com/how-to/engine/hrdp-0162-engine-coatings/  It is bigger than 300 ci.

To be honest you, the Reverend and I need to find breweries with handles on the side of them, not just steins....

Be patient grasshoppers.

Yes.    In theory only.    Even pneumatic valve springs have their limitations . . . . . .

Use a blimp for a body instead of a tank.  There will not be all of these pesky issues with packaging.
