I want to thank all the respondees.  I have Gunston's book, but was just
checking to make sure there were no others that got by him.  I am not
counting as a single engine ones where the crankcases were seperate but
geared together.  If the reduction/combining gear was physically part of
the block or crankcase, however, such as an H engine, I am counting it.
Looks like Gunston has indeed covered the largest engine ever pretty well.

Looks like the largest contemporary engine is a bit more uncertain.  I am
going to write PZL- I suspect if there is a large engine still produced in
Eastern Europe PZL is probably the mfg.
