Abstract:

NAHBE 1 is the first operative vehicle where the engine has been modified for achieving the basic performance of the Naval Academy Heat Balanced Engine concept. NAHBE 1 started as a 1965 junked jeep. The engine had been used well over 30,000 miles. It was converted to the NAHBE geometry with two days of labor. Only the pistons, rings and gaskets were replaced. The timing and all the auxiliary hardware remain standard. The NAHBE uses no antipollution devices and has not driving limitations. It has been operated over 3000 miles of ordinary use. Author
