Contact Flight International, I have seen some of their pull-out cutaway drawings that they include in the magazine from time to time, maybe they did a Conway in the past.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Wow, the whole LP spool consist of fans? Interesting, I thought it was just the first stage that was a fan.

'Tis a two stage engine, LP and HP commpressor stages, with a provision for LP by-pass air, not a true fan engine.
Very reliable, but also very noisey.
SFC not as good as a JT3D, but quite an improvement over the JT4A.
B707 Conway fuel consumption was approximately 15% less than a JT4A, 4% more than a JT3D, but also slightly more thrust, especially at higher altitudes, where the Conway excelled.

Yes, the Conway's bypass originated from an oversized LP, not a fan.
