    Brian, Have you looked at F.A.M.E. Tips and Links? The third tip is by Richard Williams (the

    the gas bottle...

    The con rod was supplied as a piece of aluminium section. This was drilled and reamed for the
    two holes. The bottom end had a bronze bush pressed in. The drawing showed the little end as
    just a bare h...

    The piston was a piece of cast iron bar, not overly generous on length. To ensure adequate

    I got a set of Chinese reamers in a wooden box some time ago from an English company Amadeal. A
