As far as plans go, I would suggest maybe the Kerzel hit and miss, or a barstock version of the Westbury Whippet. I have plans for both of these.

I can probably come on board for the gears as I will be doing a good bit of that for the next while. What are we looking at - one per member and one to auction for charity?

My vote would be for the Whippet - I've done a Kerzel.

Actually, my copy of the Whippet plans is not complete, but I do have plans for a French horizontal 4 stroke a little like the Webster. It's a little more to my liking since it's open crank, and the intake is atmospheric which should make things simpler.

I have the full series (4 parts) for the Whippet, one thing that attracts me to that is the 40 dp gears - I have cutters for that, although, like you Kaleb, I usually prefer open crank engines.

The French engine has 0.5 module gears. Could we possibly alter the design to use 40 D.P. gears instead? Also, who in the team prefers to work in imperial as opposed to metric?

If you let me have the gear details mate, I'll see how it can be shuffled. I personally work mostly in imperial but metric is not really a problem.

40dp is 0.635mod btw, so we are in the ball park.

Thanks Kaleb - 38/19 teeth in 40 dp would be very close, but a bugger to index with my gear. However 40/20 could be done by moving the cam shaft 1.5mm further away from the cranks shaft centre - that would make life easier. I'll study the plans in greater depth, to see what else that would affect, as soon as I get a bit of free time. Worse comes to the worst I can buy in the two needed 0.5 mod cutters - I know where I can get those reasonably cheap.

Very like the Webster, innit.
