The Dyno runs ever so sweetly,with it's own very unique sound.
The Dyno runs very well on a fuel mixture made up of 3 equal parts of kerosene, oil and ether.
This is an extremely well made engine with very close tolerances and typical fine Swiss workmanship.
The visual resemblance to many other early engines is striking, one that immediately comes to mind is the infamous old Deezil but in that case the similarity ends right there..
