THE WERRY ENGINE AUSTRALIAN'S INVENTION [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 8 July 1927
THE WERRY ENGINE AUSTRALIAN'S INVENTION A few privileged persons witness ed in England a private demonstra tion of what experts describe as a remarkable motor cycle engine. It has one cylinder, is double shafted and has two pistons. It was design ed by the Australian engineer, Mr Werry. Though The engine is rated nominally as of 2 1/2 horse power it is claimed that it develops 12 horse power. In a bench test it did four teen thousand revolutions a minute with a roar like an aeroplane. The engine was virtually without vibra tion though it was not even fastened down. It is predicted that the eng ine which will be on the market with in a few months wil on the road dev elop four times the power of an ord inary similarly powered motor eng ine at hallf tihe running cost. Mr Werry is applying the principle to a six cylinder aeroplane engine and the Air Ministry is showing keen inter est in the experiment.
