Bliss Jupiter
 
Bliss-Jupit
 
The 1920s Bliss Jupiter featured cylinder barrels of steel, and aluminium heads secured to the barrels by studs and set screws. Invar sleeves were fitted under the nuts to compensate for unequal expansion. The piztons were of cast Y-alloy (Nickel-Aluminium).
 
The Jupiter was supercharged and a 2-1 epcyclic reduction gear was optional. An Eclipse starter cost extra.
