Good find. It would be interesting to see how a sleeve valve engine would fare built using modern materials and machinery. I once drove a Minerva sleeve valve at a show and it burned oil terribly. As I understand it is difficult to achieve variable valve timing using the sleeve valve system.

G'day Mechagon,
to PackardInfo.

I invite you to include any Packard/s you may have in the Packard Owner's Registry.

Also attached are pic's of a cutaway Falcon Knight engine seen back in 2013 in the Sapphire Coast Historic Vehicle Club's Museum. Engine was found in a rubbish dump behind the SCHVC's clubhouse!
