Gnome Monosoupape
« on: May 06, 2012, 11:04:55 PM »
I'm looking for pictures, drawings, etc of the 80hp Gnome Monosoupape
engine. AKA "Lamda"? I beliveve it's the 7 cylinder version. Thanks in
advance for your help.

At this link, Sir, under the 'Gnome' entry, you will find period drawings of the earlier 50hp version.

In appearance, this and the 80hp version are very similar. If you scale up the dimensions of the 50hp version by 10%, you will be just about right for the 80hp version.
