    Like the title says: I'm looking for information about Lorraine Dietriech aircraft engines. Information about France's Gnome Rhône radials and Hispano's V-12s is pretty easy to come by, but it's not so easy to get information about the Lorraine Dietrich engines.

    I ran across your post while researching Lorraine-Dietrich engines, as well. Since you posted almost a year ago, I hope you see this post.

    I found an article on the Lorraine-Dietrich aircraft engines at http://www.hydroretro.net/etudegh/moteursaviationlorraine.pdf

    It's in French, so you may have to spend some time with Google translator or the like.

    Analyzing the Lorraine-Dietrich engines, they seem to be more powerful, in general, than contemporary Hispano-Suiza engines, but they are very poor on power to weight and power to capacity.

    Here is v.1 from the Les moteurs a pistons aeronautiques francais (1900-1960), vol. 1/2 from #4 above. I cannot download v.2 for some reason.
