Interesting when they moved the propeller the cooling fan behind it moved at a faster rate.

Yes, it was geared to turn at 1.72 times engine RPM.

I have always had trouble envisioning how radials work. Wikipedia has a great animated pic of the radial motion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radial_engine

I think some WW1 radials had the engine spinning?

I beleive when the WW1 era engine spins it's best called a rotary engine not radial engine. Radial engines themselves don't spin.

This is a cool page. I thought there was a radial engine on there as well. But there is the Gnome radial as described by faustnik.
There are a heap of others to marvel over as well.

Enjoy
