Henry Ford's First Engine


This project began in 2010 when I was researching Ford's Quadricycle. I read that Henry Ford found the plans for an engine in a magazine and used that as the basis for the engine in his first Quadricycle. I continued to look for a copy of that article. 
I found several references to "Ford's First Engine" on users forums. They all seemed to point to Leon Ridenour. We talked to Leon and learned that he had developed a set of plans for the first engine. We purchased Leon's plans and DVD to learn more about the engine. Some of the details presented here are from his research.
