dc.descriptionThe object of this test was to determine the reliability and durability of an all-aluminum alloy cylinder on the Lawrance 3-cylinder engine. The cylinder performed satisfactorily, on the torque stand, for a period of 10 hours, except for the exhaust-valve seat, which was hammered out badly. There appears to be no advantage gained in cooling, due to the all-aluminum construction.en_US
