Title: Internal combustion engine having opposed pistons

Abstract

An internal combustion apparatus is described having opposed sets of pistons comprising: (a) an inner crankcase means defining an inner chamber means therein, the inner crankcase means further defining a first connecting arm aperture means and a second connecting arm aperture means therein; (b) a crankshaft means rotatably mounted within the inner chamber means of the inner crankcase means and defining a crankshaft axis means extending axially there through, the crankshaft means defining a driving means peripherally therearound to facilitate distribution of driving power therefrom; (c) a first outer crankcase means defining a first outer chamber means in fluid flow communication with respect to the inner chamber means through the first connecting arm aperture means; (d) a second outer crankcase means defining a second outer chamber means in fluid flow communication with respect to the inner chamber means through the second connecting arm aperture means, the second outer crankcase means defining a second piston bore means extending longitudinally therein; (e) a crank pin means positioned extending through the crank pin aperture in the crankshaft means, the crank pin means being rotatable with respect to the crank pin aperture means; (f) a first connecting arm means fixedly secured with respect tomore » one end of the crank pin means and extending through the first connecting arm aperture means into the first outer crankcase means; (g) a second connecting arm means fixedly secured with respect to the other end of the crank pin means and extending through the second connecting arm aperture means into the second outer crankcase means; (h) a first piston assembly means positioned extending through the first piston bore means to be reciprocally axially movable therein; (i) a second piston assembly means positioned extending through the second piston bore means to be reciprocally axially movable therein.« less
