Congratulations on a great runner.

Got to build me an I.C. one of these days - thanks for the motivation.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Good looking engine. Looks similar to the Bill Reichart "Panther Pup". I am building the panther pup from Bill's booklet drawings. Just finished making the cylinders. Instead of brass I used 12L14 steel.

The attached images are of the cylinders, made 1 extra for mistake management purposes. The cylinder heads still need fins, and the valve seats to be cut.
