    Ok, I've gone back through all 30 pages again and I do not see it listed. Any idea where it might be?

    I could have sworn I've seen one in the past...if I'm mistaken and there is none, then we need to find add that info! :D

    Ranger (division of Fairchild) made an air-cooled inverted inline 6 (L-440) used in trainers like the PT-19 and the J4F/OA-14 as well as an air-cooled inverted V-12 (V-770) used in the SO3C

    They also made APU for larger aircraft, like the Martin Mars flying boats. Here's a Ranger APU seen mounted forward on the upper deck, port side, just behind the wing's mainspar aboard the Martin Mars Hawaii:
