AbstractAn internal combustion engine has a cylinder with a first axis, a piston housing therein and connected to a yoke housing having a sliding block within a slot in the yoke which slot is curved about a center of curvature with the concave side of the slot facing away from the combustion chamber and offset from the vertical axis of the combustion chamber, the curve's radius being such as to provide a power stroke having a time period which exceeds the time period of a compression stroke.
