Sir Harry Ricardo's first engine This four-stroke stratified charge engine, designed by Sir Harry at the age of 17, was built in 1903 and used for pumping water at his family home. Its success encouraged Sir Harry to a lifetime of engine design and development. President of IMechE in 1944, his thoughts and inventions still contribute to the success of Ricardo today.
