strange tbay engine

Can someone shed some light on what this is? eBay item number:233121661169 Never seen anything like it and it appears to be a mfg thing. It sure does not appear to be a diesel with spark plugs, mag and carbs.

There has to be someone out there that knows about this and how it was used. Anyone that could build this thing sure could do magic to other engines.

I did read the link and it does not identify the origin, maker or positive history of the engine.

I had a 1965 2-cycle Sears Allstate motorcycle with two cylinders and one spark plug. It was a V-twin with the smaller rear cylinder used for intake and compression. The fuel charge moved through a passage to the larger front cylinder for power and exhaust strokes. The front had a spark plug and was connected to the exhaust pipe.
