Congratulations on a very nicely built engine. Beautiful and it sounds great. I really like the low RPM.

Beautiful engine, great work. Those flywheels run so true it looks like they're not moving!

Very nice looking and an exceptionally good running engine. Could you tell me how the connecting rod bushings are lubricated?

Hello Jeff, thanks to all for your kind comments. The con rod bearings have grease cap lubricators fitted,it was trial and error as the space to fit them is quite limited. It will idle down to 300 RPM, it has run for about 20 hours. there was a marked difference at about the 10 hour mark as the engine bedded in. Ignition is from Roy Sholl at S/S Machine and Engineering.
