Joining the United States Navy and participating in a special Enlistment Program began the Journey. Here Graduating from Jet Engines and System Fundamentals School. Each in the Class got the opportunity to Pre-Flight, Pre-Start Check and Power-up this Jet Trainer.
After Receiving further Aviation Training in “Escape and Evasion Tactics,” and further very specific Electrical and Electronic Fundamental training I was sent to NAS Moffett Field California and assigned as a 2nd Mechanic/Flight Engineer aboard the Lockheed Martin P-3 Orion Sub Chaser Squadron VP-46.
In-flight duties included monitoring hundreds of system gages, proper switch positions, Preflight and In-flight weight and balance Calculations, fuel transfer system and take action for any number of Flight Emergencies.
My desire to personally fly my own Aircraft became known after I joined the on Base US Air force Operated General Aviation Flight Club and Flew Solo after only 36 hours in a Cessna 150. Subsequently on a Patrol along the Aleutian Islands off the Alaskan Coast Line I was given the honor of Flying the Powerful and Sophisticated P-3 Orion… Simply Awesome!
Upon exiting the USN, the Air Force Air Club gave me Letter of Good Standing and Recommendation to join Civilian Operated Air Clubs.
To fly Civilian Aircraft I took and passed the Ground School and License Class given at Foothill Jr College at Los Altos California.
Logged many hours flying in and out of the General Airfields Located in the greater Bay Area in the Popular Cessna 150, 172’s and 180’s.
I read many magazines and my favorites were the Popular Science, Popular Mechanics and Flying. There were numerous articles written displaying the Bede Kit Aircraft. The propeller driven BD-5 was to be powered by a two-cycle Hirth snow mobile engine.
The 4 cylinder Volkswagen Engine. This engine is machined to show internal components.
My Power plant of choice was the Corvair Engine. Pictured here is a modified Corvair with a Propeller Drive Gear.
Wanting to go “over the Top” I designed a twin Corvair setup. A front to back Case and Crankshaft connected 12 cylinder configuration. The Corvair and Volkswagen unique flat or boxer layout makes for a very mechanically balanced engine. The design also incorporates some other features that include an all Aluminum Cylinder Case with Independent and individually removable Cylinder and Piston Assemblies making Modification and Improvements Uncomplicated.
Aluminum casing and Independent and removable Piston Cylinders making larger displacement modifications uncomplicated and later prove to be a very unobvious benefit.
After exiting the USN I began to collect Corvair Engine Casing Parts and experiment with the 12 Cylinder layout.
The Flying Magazine were filled with articles about the Bede and the Burt Rutan designed Long-Eze and Lazy-Eze Kit Aircraft. This design captured my attention with its anti-stall canards that push the nose down by “Stalling First” before the main wings.
My completed interconnected 12 cylinder Corvair Engine. A modified 1972 12 Cylinder Jag Distributor rounds off this unique design. The design also included 12 single throat Webber Carbs. The large intake ports would make for easy engine breathing.
This Popular Mechanics Magazine illustrated an article that changed my direction and my thinking on a possibly new way of powering my 12 Cylinder Boxer Engine. The Article “Railroads Shape Up to Give You A Faster, Smother Ride” On page 40 of this October issue.
I continued with my research and following of Burt Rutan’s anti stall front winged composite Aircraft. Here a Model 33 VariEze I found more to my liking being tested by NASA. I could not get the Magnetically Levitated Train Technology out of my head. Finally after many sleepless nights I envisioned an Electromagnetically Forced Piston and Cylinder Assembly I thought worthy of investigating and study.
I knew and understood the principle operation of the DC and AC Motor. Looking at this functional illustration it became apparent that a Magnetized Piston could be made to reciprocated in a special dedicated Cylinder.
I intensified my research and understanding of Magnetic Force Calculations and the Mechanical Configuration that would be required.
I learned that Magnetic Force calculations has many parameters and they all must be taken into consideration when designing a Magnetic Circuit. There are Mechanical as well as Electrical and Electronic concerns and restraints to manipulate this invisible force that surrounds a magnetized element.
I learned that a concentrated magnetic field is created internal to a wound Coil that can be manipulated to act on a Magnetized Piston.
I began to understand fully the force calculations and force requirements for emulating the Internal Combustion Engine.
The Mechanical Construction of the Piston and Cylinder Construction required a complete understanding of the Periodic Table of elements.
After Years of concentrated Study on existing Electromagnetic Systems I began specific experiments on my 12 cylinder Boxer Engine.
I ordered many sizes and shaped Permanent Magnets to apply in my magnetic Piston design.
Here a set of 6 3 inch x 2 inch neodymium 1.3 Tesla or 30,500 gauss magnets.
All of the operational components of a typical flat boxer Engine was laid out and studied for an Electromagnetic conversion
Every aspect from external power to internal operational characteristics were analyzed and cataloged.
Here my Mechanical Artist takes instructions on Piston Configuration and Design.
Hard at work cataloging results and completing initial instructed design drawings.
The core mechanical configuration of the non-magnetic Casing.
In May of 2012 a Non-Provisional Patent Application was filed for a Zero Emissions Electric Magnetic Pneumatic Engine was filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Even though my initial design was centered around my custom Boxer 12 Cylinder Engine I knew that the Independent Cylinder was a key portion of a successful Electromagnetically Force Driven Engine. The Steel or iron block in and of itself is not Magnetic Circuit Compatible. We have Custom Configurations that Compete with the Inline and Cast V Blocks.
I began analyzing the Modifiability and Scalability of the Engine during my Patent Pending status
I entertained the idea of working with San Jose State University but after intense negotiations learned that University Academic Freedom Policies were not a fit for exploitation of my Invention.
