CV also built an air-cooled version, which I think was called the MA, it would of course use a common crankcase in both the MA and MW range.

Hi Philip,

Yes correct, the air-cooled version of this CV was the MA, Don had one of them for a while, he'll be able to tell you which size MA it was as I don't recall.

Funnily enough Don it always seemed quite a big engine in comparison with the new one, more than likely down to the cooling fins and cowling adding bulk.

I like the Wimshurst machines in pic#155228. We had one of those in the Physics lab at school, all oak and brass. That didn't half make Your hair stand on end!!

I think I saw that working a couple of years ago Charles, it reminded me of the colour spectrum wheels.
