    Those are impressive. I saw on either the History channel or Discovery, that they can shut down a single piston and climb into the crank case to do inspection and repairs. After the oil is drained from that section. Did I hear that wrong? I am still baffled how they could do that looking at the pictures.

    That doesn't sound quite right.
    Nevertheless, i know they wander around all over and through the engine while it is running. See that it only does 102 RPM! so everything is happening at low speed that the eye can see.
