    Does this picture help? In the radial, the crank turns, in the rotary the crank is stationary and the engine turns. The stroke is determined by the displacement of the crank form the center of rotation, just like a regular automobile engine.
    The master rod is the same as a single cylinder engine's. It rides on the eccentric of the crankshaft and the other cylinders slave off of it, like in the picture.

    Inside a Radial Engine

    Thanks Rob and shrike,

    That explains the basic functions in the best possible way. From now on, I´ll know for sure the difference between a rotary and a radial engine.

    best regards,
    Bengt:rolleyes:
