    I have access to some "leaded steel". I'm told it's easy to machine, but not weldable. Would
    this be an alternative to cast iron for cylinders?Cylinders for what?

    I was instructed to use the ratchet, and to go three clicks.

    Aspen alkylate petrol may be cheaper, but still not cheap. Google it for your nearest supplier
    (they are a bit thin on the ground) and a description of the claimed advantages.

    I knew Jay had lots of cars but I didn't know he also had a Merlin. And a real fancy one at
    that.It's a matter of taste I know, but for 'fancy' I'd say 'blinged-up beyond reason'.

    I'm not moving out of this chair.

    The accuracy of the master cam is only one aspect of the matter. The geometry of the mechanism
    is also critical to its faithful reproduction.Not long ago I completed a rocking frame grinder,
    shown her...

    I recommend getting a book.

    I agree with Bazmak. A set of 0 to 6 mm in 0.1 mm steps will cover every imperial or metric
    size you need. That equates to 0.004" steps, accurate enough for almost any drilled or tapped

    My own, perhaps controversial, view is that multi-cylinder i.c. engines withoutcrankcases are
    an aberration peculiar to HMEM.

    Is this a new kit from Stuart, or bought elsewhere?
