    Hello Charles The recent posts of engine photos. and construction slideshows cover just about

    This project was, many years ago, my goal in model engineering, a nice looking engine that I
    could ride behind.I steamed it up a number of times away from the track and rode behind it once

    Hello Dave Thanks for the comments.I'm not certain what the paint was, it was many years ago

    the 'Morton M5' and this engine is based on that design.I learned a lot from that project.The

    The V twin was my first I/C engine. I was so impressed with the way it performed, I was hooked
    on I/C engines for some time.The Gypsy 1 is another successful design by Chenery. Sounds
    good.No construc...
