  1. David,

    The Wasp 4360 was an enormously complex and equally powerful piece of machinery. Power output ranged from 3000 to almost 4500, depending upon the version. The beast has 28 cylinders in four banks of 7, 56 valves, etc. The “face” of the engine would be about 4 feet across. It was really the last major radial engine before turbo props started coming on the scene in the very early 1950’s. See the Allison 56 series as a good example of an early successful T-prop solution.
