I have a block and one cyl for the 100hp 4cyl. I had found a company in California that still offers parts and new motors even. I will try to pull up that info for you.

Hope you get that rat going. I would be MOST interested in seeing pictures of how you rig a quiet exhaust system on it. Good luck.

Try the experimental aircraft sites. Google popular rotorcraft, some guys use these engines on gyrocoptors. EAA site probably has some info too.
