View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Wayne Grenning has assembled a great store of publications, texts and catalogs from the early days of the internal combustion engine in his personal library. These publications have assisted him greatly in his modeling of early flame ignition engines, such as his Sombart and Otto and Langen models, and his full-sized replica of the Forest non-compression engines. Grenning realized that this data would be of interest to other enthusiasts, and set forth to make available many years of research in a single publication. The results are presented in Flame Ignition, which will make its debut at the much anticipated Coolspring Power Museum's Flame Engine Expo on June 18-20, 2015. The book examines the efforts of early internal combustion engine designers and the problems they faced. Each of the eight chapters gives a history of the designs covered and the actual engines developed are discussed in alphabetical order. The engines covered all feature flame ignition, although other significant designs are discussed as they relate to the story of flame ignition. Each chapter contains many period engravings, test data, specifications and full color photos of existing examples of the engines covered.
