I seem to recall Ford experimenting with plastic con. rods years ago ...
That should be good for about 1.5hp as long as you keep the compression ratio under 2:1
Get it hot and it will catch fire.
Never make it in the southeast. Termites are awful down there.
They should have doweled it instead of gluing it
It might have actually idled for a minute or two that way.
people with way too much time on their hands
They should have pressure treated the wood first LOL .
Matti Holtzberg’s first practical experiments with polymer engine parts date back to 1969, when the engineer fitted plastic pistons in an Austin Mini engine. These lasted only 20 minutes in testing, though a revised design with aluminum crowns reportedly made for much better durability. Ten years later Holtzberg founded Polimotor Research in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, where research initially centered around a design loosely based on Ford’s 2.3 liter Pinto four. Though touted on the cover of the September, 1982 issue of Popular Science as “Ford’s Impossible Plastic Engine,” Holtzberg has since claimed that Dearborn had no involvement with the project.
