Quite some time ago, there was an article which discussed the Continental A-40 and a couple other engines. I had thought it was one of the "More Inspiration" series by John Oder, but it's not, that was on the R-1820 and related radial engines. Those were the same idea, showing the various separate parts etc.

I looked through the article index, but there are a large number of articles, and I do not recall the title nor the author. Only the subject.

Anybody recall that article and have a clue when it was?

About 2 minutes after I posted, I remembered the color of the cover! That got me the article in 3 tries. J-A '02

Thanks anyhow!

Just HOW do you search for a cover color?

Very simple.......

I go to the shelves, look at the magazine holders, and see which ones are the color I think the copy I am looking for is. I have nearly every issue, other than a few from somewhere in the 1990s.
