I remember something about an engine that Ford did sometime in the 70-80,s Most everything was plastic. Metal tips on the valves and metal caps on the pistons. and a few other parts. So it was done many years ago. Anybody remember it? Scott

It was the eighties and I remember it well. The plastic was Amoco Torlon and they ran the engine in a race. That was also a Polimotor design which had Ford funding.
