Very cool. I had read an article about a company that was remanufacturing MB OM606 (I think) engines for use in aviation, but this is even better.

Speaking of aircraft engines, here's a radial 9-cyl diesel.. not from an airplane though, but lot of airplanes had radial engines so it might be of interest.
Very cool!

Got to love the comment

First chance you get go to an aviation museum and check out a 4 row radial aircraft engine that has been cut away. The engineering is amazing. Look at the cams.
