Okay, it seems the engine to build has been decided then. Now, what parts do each of you want to make? Tel has already put his hand up for the gears, and I'm thinking of doing the flywheels, fuel tank support columns and possibly the cylinders and pistons.

Kaleb looks like time to get things organised. You have a plan set .
you need a team . you have one I think but the names should be listed.
TB 1 had 10 folks we did 12 engines. that seemed like a good number.
IMHO have 2 people do 6 each cylinder and piston sets maybe throw the crank in there as well. divide the work into 10 sets of parts or however many team members you get. then let people pick the part sets. try to make the division somewhat equal and fair. clear organization and clear communication will go a long way to insuring success of the project. Post all information the build in clear concise manner . For obvious reasons keep personal information private via e-mail and PMs.
so you need a list of the team and a list of parts breakdown and then a list of part assignments.

I could probably do the crank and the cam and of course some other parts, CNC would get those perfect. There are no diameter measurements on the crank.

I have a 13x36 lathe and RF 25 mill. Having never done any "serious" machining I would be happy with the simpler parts if thats ok.

At this stage I won't put my hand up to build any of the parts, but if more detailed plans or any modifications to customise for the build are required then I would like to help.
This way everyone can also have an input into the look, material selection style for the build and then see exactly what the end result should be like.
Also if people needed to be able to make parts in imperial I could convert the parts perfectly for them.
