Bright idea

Wheels (Australia) - - Carejohny -

Ralph Sarich was the West Australian engi­neer who came up with a new en­gine de­sign he dubbed Or­bital. He took it to ABC TV’S The

In­ven­tors, which named him In­ven­tor of the Year 1972. The Or­bital con­cept was a dud (think of it as a kin­da­sorta ro­tary equipped with ex­tra prob­lems), but the air-as­sisted fuel-in­jec­tion sys­tem Sarich came up with while try­ing to make it work could be ap­plied to nor­mal pis­ton en­gines.
