I built a lot of Pietenpol wing ribs and a fuselage frame when I was 
younger.  We were trying to get one together. As can happen on big 
projects like that, life got in the way.  I always wondered, though, 
that if it could be made to run on a Model A engine, it's entirely 
possible that it could run on an A1 Diesel.  Maybe something with a 
turbo to tune it to a lower RPM range....
