Godspeed Maurice Petty.

Engine building was more art than science back in his day, and he was a heck of a fine artist. There's still a degree of art in the motors, but it's a lot more weighted toward science today.

RIP

Did not realize till just now he had passed.

Great engine builder.

And his early 70s look was epic.
