Default Follow up to the "counter weight" thread.

I didn't want to hi-jack the thread on counter weights so started this one to ask my questions. If counter weights are so much better, why didn't henry incorporate them in the original design. Also, if a lighter flywheel is preferred/better, why did henry opt for a heavy one??. I understand that technology and our understanding of internal combustion engines and reciprocal mass has come s LONG way since the late 1920's. henry seemed like a pretty sharp guy and these two design inclusions seem pretty simple so why would Henry take such a different position on counter weights and flywheel weight than what seems to be the general consensus today??.
