Interesting how the company video describes the level of information that an engineer would be interested in about tolerances etc.

I also liked how they solved the timing issue by making the distributor mechanically moved by the camshaft. Genius'!

I can only imagine how tight they could make this engine today with modern tolerances. Anybody know more about that?

 

I chuckled at the ignition waterproofing test. 

I bet in 50 years we will see more about some funny current practices that we don't see.
