Packard, the captain, and the wavy-crank opposed-piston engine.

https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2019/08/ ... nk-opposed-piston-engine/

There must be an unwritten rule somewhere that every engineer – even the most button-down, nose-to-the-grindstone straight-shooter – is allowed at least one flight of fancy. Prolific Packard inventor Captain Lionel M. Woolson seemed to have spent his idle hours dreaming of an internal-combustion engine that nobody else seems to have considered.

Woolson, though little known to Packard automobile enthusiasts, holds high esteem among Packard aviation enthusiasts. He is, after all, the man who designed Packard’s successful diesel aviation engines that won the company the prestigious Collier Trophy in 1931 and who was personally recognized by President Herbert Hoover for the achievement.

A native of Los Angeles who spent much of his youth in England and who studied engineering at St. Paul’s School in London, Woolson began applying for patents in the Teens as a mechanical engineer with Hoboken-based Bijur Motor Appliance Co. then, once the United States entered World War I, joined the Army Air Service. Though he trained as a pilot, the Army Air Service assigned him to aircraft engine testing and stationed him at McCook Field in Dayton under Jesse Vincent, where Woolson rose to the rank of captain.

The trunions are heat treated but not fully hardened. Fully hard is 50-62 HRC, the trunions are probably around 38 to 45 HRC. Heat treating makes them tough but not brittle, fully hard they would be brittle.

They can be bored out using carbide tooling, CBN, or you could have them wire cut, EDM machined to accept bushings. Just be careful not to remove to much material to weaken them.

Another option would be to have the pin portion metal (thermal) sprayed and ground. The trunion bores would be machined first to clean them up and establish the size the pins would later be ground to.

Jig grinding the trunion bores would be one option if you went the metal spray route.

Info about the metal (thermal) spray process:

Nice experiment!

Hot copper will act as a catalyst and oxidize ethanol. Slower process at lower temps?
