(Cl. 23u-_56)
The present invention pertains to a novel two

cycle engine and compressor, and the principal
object is to provide a device of this character in
which the cylinders, horizontally alined, are not
rigidly anchored, in order to eliminate undue
strains on the structure.
In the accomplishment of this object the alined
cylinders are carried by supports which in turn
ently be shown. The sliding uprights 2 carry
opposed cylinders 3 and 4 fastened by bolts 5. The
intermediate uprights 2 are extended to form
the spaced end Walls or bottoms 6 of the cylinders
