    The drawing above is from "Rotary Engines of World War One" by William Morse.

    No blooper (I think...), just an error in the drawing... Roller T is in contact ONLY with exhaust camplate, roller V only with inlet camplate...

    Well done, Alain!
    The rollers T and V must be on OPPOSITE sides of the lever U for correct function.
