Thanks Chris ,I had just about finished a dissertation on critical engine etc. all that work for nothing. The only information I can offer on this thread is that the F7F engines both turn right hand as viewed from cockpit which is the normal reference point.
Thanks for that Clancy, The Reno air races haven't been the same since the Lefty and the "White Lightening" retired. Another excellent P-38 book is Warren Bodie's which claims to be the definitive book on P-38 history. Don't know about that but it does have a lot of info that is not found in other accounts.
