Re: Repower confusion (horsepower)

That Washington had six individual heads and a dry sump with access panels so you could change main bearings easily. A small guy could reportedly get in the crankcase to work. It was direct reverse (no transmission, just a driveline) so you shut the engine down and pulled a lever and started the engine again (compressed air start) running in the opposite direction. It was still running last I heard and it was built in the 1930's as I recall.
