Unique features: This engine has a ported exhaust in addition to the conventional exhaust valve. When the engine is up to speed, the governor moves the injector camshaft aside, preventing fuel from being
injected into the cylinder. During this miss cycle, the intake and exhaust valves operate normally, inducting clean air, compressing it, expanding it and exhausting it.
