Gear cutting done, just got to drill and tap them all for M3 grubs and run them in in pairs now. Probably tackle a run of spark plugs next.

great work Tel, Herbie, looks great.
While you have been working, Ive been relaxing 1000kms from home in the
Hunter valley wineries region,tasting suitable Wines for my son Lee's wedding
tomorrow
But I will be home again monday, all I have completed is the valves and retainers.
Bit unsure about heads and ports, so have not continued with them, or do you
think I should continue as per drawings?

Dave

Yep, good luck to all involved, and enjoy the wine. They make, from memory, a rather fine Le Gopener.

I've been slowly making some swarf on this project, I've got one flywheel nearly done, but ruined my first go at a fuel tank support column. Ah well, these things happen.

Back on deck again, recovered from wedding etc
Dunno about the RAAF guys tho! They found the Le Mouthopener!!
Tel, I think the Le Gopener got shelved!

Have the valve seats all but completed as I have problem finding
suitable springs or wire to make them.
I havve however assembled 1 valve set with a slightly larger ID spring
and I think it will work well. (4.7mm ID)
However this is a deviation from the original plans. Not sure we should be
doing that.
Open to suggestions here!
Will post a pic maybe tomorrow, cant get macro to focus properly on
them as they are so small.

Default Team build deviation

I just got it. Doh! LeG Opener. Only took 2 weeks. Dave, I wouldn't worry too much about small deviations as there are quite a few measurements missing there is bound to be some deviation. As long as we communicate well there should be no drama.

Also if people needed to be able to make parts in imperial I could convert the parts perfectly for them.
Hay guys
This plan set looks like it needs a bit of work, why dont we get Ausdier to post his detailed workshop drawings for this Engine??

That gets my vote Pete - there is a lot of info not there that needs to be.
