    Hi Sid. Problem is this patent link provided only gives verbage. Do you have any cross sections of this motor? I Google'd but found nothing within a few minutes and gave up.

    Claims are intended to elucidate the invention to the point that figures are not required. With as many claims as I've reviewed I have yet to be able to decipher an invention without figures.

    Actually the if you click on the Images link at the top, it shows the pictures. However the pictures I think need a plug in to download which is available at uspto website.

    The engine is just like a rotary vane compressor only instead of releasing the compressed gases, it burns them and then expands them and thus keeps running.
