The GIF - video below shows the internal parts of the PatOP opposed piston prototype engine:

http://www.pattakon.com/patop/PatOP1.gif

Bore: 79.5mm
Stroke: 64+64=128mm
Displacement: 635cc
Compression ratio: 17
Scavenging pump bore: 130mm (1.34 scavenging ratio)
Total engine height: 500mm
Total engine weight (without the flywheel): less than 20Kp

It is an:
opposed-piston,
two-stroke,
single-cylinder,
single-crankshaft,
full-balanced (vibration free),
cross-head,
direct-injection Diesel engine,
with built-in "volumetric" (for a wider rev range and flat torque curve) scavenging pump,
with four-stroke-like lubrication,
and with some 35% as compared to the conventional, or some 20% as compared to the Junkers-Doxford and to the OPOC of EcoMotors, additional time for the injection and combustion of the fuel.


Along with the Junkers-Doxford:

the Commer TS3:

is another well-known single crankshaft opposed piston engine.


This:

is from the video PatOP QuickTime video (http://www.pattakon.com/patop/PatOP1.MOV) showing the PatOP prototype engine running on Diesel fuel, standing free on a desk.


This plot (the PatOP follows the OPRE engine (http://www.pattakon.com/pattakonOPRE.htm) curve) :

and this gif animation:

are explanatory for the additional time provided for the injection, penitration, vaporization and combustion of the fuel in the OPRE and in the PatOP engines.
