The oldest engine in the Museum's collection

The engine was designed by Leon Levavasseur. Every cylinder has a separate injection carburettor. Worth mentioning is the cooling system, using water evaporation in the cylinder jackets. Due to complexity of fuel supply and cooling installations, the engine did not gain popularity. It powered an aircraft bearing the same name.
