Interesting find!  I am a little unsure about the 72hp rate, but don't know two strokes that well.  A lot of experimental aircraft run on less.

I understand that McCullough also made a counter rotating prop that the military used for target drones.  A dual counter rotating prop in front of 72hp would bring a lot of horsepower per pound.

They did make 72 HP, along with enough noise for 720 HP.  The flat four McCulloughs were really, really loud  :grin:
