The engine used a single crankshaft at one end of the cylinders and a crosshead for the opposing piston. In 1914, the Simpson's Balanced 2-Stroke motorcycle engine was the first opposed-piston engine to use a single crankshaft beneath the centre of the cylinders with both pistons connected by levers.

The cost of opposed piston engines relative to a 4-stroke diesel can be debated. The most direct comparison is probably the 3 cylinder opposed piston engine to the traditional inline 6 diesel. Both engines have similar torque smoothness with the same number of power strokes per revolution and both engines have good inherent balance.
