"Hartley has applied for a number of patents for the V8, including one that allows using identical heads- one reversed......You save on inventory (with identical heads)....The design uses the offset required for the second rod to move the reversed head forward toward the cam drive... saving 40mm....more in a larger engine.  It's one of many ways Hartley thinks mainstream automotive engine designers could reduce the box volume of their designs."

Please contact me for further information on the design details and license opportunities./ John Hartley
