    I can distinctly recall ordering plans for a similar engine and receiving plans for a device that couldn’t possibly work even if you were able to put it together

    Houston Maupin, AKA Bapa. Was my Grandfather I have copies of this old advertisement but have never been able to get a set of these plans. Bapa was a pilot, WW1 veteran, self taught engineer/ machinist he worked for many aircraft companys during WW11 and helped develope the variable pitch prop. Bapa was a hustler he used to take over expiring patents. He hired my dad after WW11 to research these at the patent office in Los Angeles. I don`t know if this was his design or an aquired patent.
