The “Odd Ball” twin OHV vapor engine was built by Ron Schindele, of AZ, in 2021. The Odd Ball is a 2-cylinder, 4-stroke air-cooled overhead valve engine with a bore of .687 and stroke of .708.  It is made up of 2 crankshafts, 2 camshafts, 19 ball bearings, 6 timing gears, three cog pulleys, 1 timing belt and a large flywheel. It burns gasoline vapor on spark ignition and purrs like a kitten. The engine is 6″-long, 4″-wide and 6″-high.
