    Nice job Dick. I've been following all the way. Great to see another Vee engine firing
    up.Keith.

    Art, the half bearing on the sump cradle side has a small pin soldered in, similar to the con
    rod bearings. I didn't do the block side as the oil way will be in this position. With the
    bearings being ...

    Hi Bill, the cast iron was from Reeves in the UK. It was just plain extruded bar, not tube. I
    had some more extruded cast which I think was from Chronos tools, which I've just used to make
    the piston ...

    Had a good Xmas in the shed. I did the cast iron liners first. I ordered some cast iron to do a
    test. This was obviously poured in a mould. It was a bit rough to machine but gave a reasonable
    finish i...

    Well, my plans change all the time, but at the moment the plan is to get it running, with some
    form of forced induction, and then make a mini dyno and do a bit of proper testing on it under
    load.After...

    Paul, I'm as surprised as anyone that the dividing head is so rigid, although it is a hefty
    beast.Some more progress........continuing my theme of trying things I've not seen on models
    before, I made ...

    Yes, 4 jaw chuck method would work just as good.I started the block recently.I'm going to use
    the dividing head to machine 90% of the block. It worked great on the V8, so no need to change
    technique.T...

    I've not seen this method of making the bearing shells too often, so I decided to photograph
    every step.Apologies if everyone already knows this stuff.First step was to rough turn and bore
    the phospho...

    John, from my understanding of it, balancing the crank alone wouldn't achieve anything useful.
    The crank needs to be balanced with some dummy weights fastened to the journals, to represent
    the mass of...
