Found couple of nice scans on Flickr which has better quality than the images previously posted here - so, gentlemen, please check your collections and replace if neccessary:

Next one was this AJS/Matchless twin engine cutaway by J. Bennett - this engine was build many years in 500, 650 and even 750cc versions and thus had a lot of names - so it difficult to identify the exact model depicted. Temporarily I saved it in my collection as 1957 Matchless G11 650cc engine (if I am wrong, please correct me) 1957-Matchless-G11-650-Engine-Cleaned.jp I also have a nice blueprint of this engine... 1957-Matchless-G11-650-Engine-Blueprint. ...which beautifully shows some of the very interesting technical features - first one is this intermediate bearing support plate with main journal cap (see red parts) 1957-Matchless-G11-650-Engine-Bearing-Su - very elegant solution which still allows vertically-split crankcase without overstressing crankshaft. I'd say this is kind of hybrid between conventional main journal caps and even more exotic tunnel monoblock crankcase - like this relatively modern VM Diesel (some time ago Ibsen posted cutaway of this engine as Alfa Romeo 2,0L Diesel) Tunnel-Crankcase-VM-Diesel.jpg Second unusual feature is a camshaft layout - as you can see at the blueprint, this engine has mirrored OHV layout (in common terms I guess we can call it DOHV - double overhead valve). "Extreme exotic!" I thought - I mean the only similar automotive engine I could remember was this stillborn 2001 GM XV8 concept engine... 2001-GM-XV8-Engine.jpg ...but then I found this 2013 Indian Thunder Stroke 111 engine with three cams (!) - you may also remember 1927 Fiat 806 GP engine 2013-Indian-Thunder-Stroke-Engine.jpg ...What can I say... Motorcycle engines are truly amazing :drunk:

Sorry I can't help providing missing info, or better scans.

 

What I am surprised about is J Bennett's signature.

 

The cutaway artist we know as 'Bill Bennett'  is John Arthur Bennett

1957-Matchless-G11-650-Engine-Cleaned.jp

 

Could he have done Motorcycle cutaways under another signature ?

I've added in a 'Car'  cutaway signature to the drawing to compare

It is also possible that J Bennett signature was added later by some editor or something. At least I have already seen a lot of unsigned motorcycle cutaways... and if so, that person could be not aware about "correct" signature of Bennett... well, this is only my guess

1928 Norton ES2 500cc engine by S.E. Porter 1928-Norton-ES2-500cc-Engine-Cleaned.jpg Another long-lasting engine which was manufactured from 1928 up to 1964 - so it anyone will recognize the article where this cutaway was published maybe we will be able to identify the exact model year

1953 Heinkel Tourist. Unsigned, but I think this is Schlenzig - at least wheel treatment resembling his BMW 600 (see below) 1953-Heinkel-Tourist.jpg Schlenzig-Wheels.jpg According to index it was already posted on page 234 together with his engine and transmission - but for some reason it is missing in my collection. So if someone could kindly repost those earlier images it would be very nice, thank you

About this "wooden car"... I understand they tried to use that DH Mosquito fame (which had probably the most starry image among other "woodies", right?) - but it is still hardly works as unigue selling point... If I remember correctly full-metal designs were already overwhelming that time - Mosquito was fast because it didn't had protective armament, not because it was wooden... So the real reason for that wooden car is that they didn't have money for stamping presses, etc. - there is no forgotten art or something...

 

 

P.S. By the way found an amazing site - grandprixengines.co.uk - which you probably already aware of... literally tons of extremely interesting information about engines - and in a beautifully compressed form... Reading with great interest right now

I hadn't noticed (paid attention) before

but RA271  had this odd "kinked" lower front radius rod, and RA272 had multiple rear radius rod attachment ponts

Can you please hint where you read about that? Because I had a lot of trouble trying to identify 271 and 272 (stamped steel wheels vs. cast magnesium spoked ones or something)

And of course I remember it so well, because I thought (silly of me) James Allington had done something wrong in his cutaway.

Mostly I was confused because 271 and 272 used the same engine and there were a lot of photos of it which were named differently - so I wasn't completely sure about my files
