You can send them money but you can't contact them.

Is there anyone besides me that has done any extensive research on this engine?

I did look through my library of period design texts and other sources that would be applicable. Shes a cobble job, and not alone. I have run into my share of them. Mostly built by students and enthusiasts. One good telltale sign is an engine of inferior design, built using parts from other engines that were better designs. Not taking away from the piece at all, I just don't see any historical providence outside of someone's pet project of old. That being said, its a perfect candidate to "finish" by adding a cooling system and driving something with it. I seriously doubt a school would pay anything for it, although they would probably take it as a donation. Time and money spent on something like that is a hobby expense not an investment. Glad you are having fun with it.

It's not a cobble, it's a Heinze model 57

"Patent Pending" has been used profusely throughout the years to scare off potential copycats, whether a patent was actually pending, or not.

There is one other mass produced part on this engine that no one but The Engineer has seen. It is not some "cobbled" part, it is of high quality, The crankcase vent. I asked him to post some of the pics I sent him and asked if he could identify the crankcase vent manufacturerer.

My question is why would someone even go through the trouble of stamping the base since it is not of significannt importance in the mechanical world...did they do it as a lark?
Why make a seperate casting & machining, just for the CASE nameplate, seems like overkill if it is a a lark.
I am sure someone will return with some kind of comment to try to negate my query. Disspell this one Makoman

Joe,
I would believe that the base was cast just for display. Without it you would be almost resting on the flywheel if I am correct, and it may have been a location to hide the original fuel tank. Making an oddball engine out of scrap is nothing new, and was quite a popular hobby in the 1940's and 1950's. There were even scores of casting kits offered for engines of all sizes, however this doesn't match any I know of. The basement of one of the local engineering colleges has a collection of homebrew engines, some look almost production. Same thing at the local aviation museum. Ive got a pretty good way to search engine patents, and nothing is coming up as even being submitted that would have any relationship to yours. The fact that the pat applied for is stamped and not cast in, even though case is, is odd. Likely you will never know its history, just like all the other orphans out there.

I have recently found that schools do patent things
Here is one for an active ingredient in Cannabis.
Original Assignee Virginia Commonwealth University
https://www.google.com/patents/US663...ed=0CDUQ6wEwAA

I thought this was interesting. I also found patents for other types of schools as well.

Look what our goverment has been up to since 1999

BTW that statement was not meant for you, and/or you only.
Other people might not know this, if not, now they do.
You seem to know everything, so why even read posts from an idiot like me.
You are not the only one keeping up with this thread.
Just because I post does not mean it is directed towards you.
From now on, when I want your opinion I will ask for it.
Thank you
Joe

Ok...I guess I didn't realize that it was not commonly known.

Joe,
I don't think you are an idiot, just not well versed in the history of engines. That's ok I don't know squat about fuel pump computers, and if I needed to know something about one I would ask you. This forum consists largely of very experienced people in the engine hobby and engine profession, not just myself.
