The Szekely 45 hp, 3 cylinder engine can be repaired but you're not going to fly behind it.
People do still fly behind the Szekely, and people do still have a cylinder blow completely off of the crankcase and flop around on that cable while the pilot tries to ignore the insanity three feet in front of him and look for a place to dead stick it in...I would give the radial the best chance I could, but be prepared to punt. It would be cool on a stand and do demos; 2 minute runs.
