Is there any way that I could actually get you to elaborate on your two stroke theories? I asked a page or two ago, but now I need to do it again. As I read this, it doesnt make sense. I am not being argumentative, I just would like to understand (case in point, allowing combustion byproducts to escape with residual byproducts, which seems to be two of the same). Are you talking about a two stroke that uses neither poppet valves, reed valves, or cylinder porting? If so, how does this work? I think what is happening here is that you are thinking faster than you are typing and missing some content.
