I personally think that both evolutionary processes are on a par with each other.I seems the diesel engine has gone through more evolutionary changes than the gasoline engine, so it would seem.
I have much reading to do.
I think I have a copy of the book Internal Fire, written by Lyle Cummins, and I seem to recall the front page is signed by Lyle.
My dad use to know a guy in the publishing business (Tom Lindsay), so perhaps that is where it came from.
I am going to look for that book, and see if I am recalling that correctly.

You might like to consider reading up on George B Brayton? He’s been an almost forgotten pioneer in the area of internal combustion. Accredited with the invention of the liquid fuel injector and his Cycle is now in extensive use around the world.
I have been very slowly building a replica of one of his engInes for over 20 years now. Hopefully I will get to finish it in the next couple of years.
