So, I used to be perusing a railroad fanatic board the opposite day, and came across an extended thread about why steam engines would have their rods related to the wheels on the opposite facet at 0°, 90°, or 180°, for problems with stability, ease of upkeep, or traction. As I used to be studying this, I acquired to pondering; no person has ever considered putting cranks at something aside from 180° aside. Or have they????? Might someone give you some cockamamie ‘profit’ to putting cranks say, 90° aside? Or possibly another quantity than 180°? What do all of you assume; might this be the “moon saddle” of the long run?
