This is an engine a friend and I came across
while visiting Houston. We have no idea who manufactured the
engine. What caught our attention was the fact that it appears to
have been modified from a slide valve engine to a piston valve
Off flywheel side of the engine (Larry doesn't know he's supposed to stay
outside the ropes!).

Crank end of the piston valve. Note how they had to attach the valve rod
offset on the valve spool.
