Great Job! What is the base material and where did you get it? I'd like some for a base too.

Now that is just plain cool! Be a lot of fun to fire that up in the living room to see the wife's reaction. I assume you mixed some oil with the gas to assist in piston lubrication?

Yes I do. WD40 actually. Works real well as a top end lube.

Well I found a couple things and it is running a little better. First I found the two ignition wires on the 2-4 bank were crossed DUUHHHH!! What a dork!. I also re-positioned the conductor on the rotor. Then it was a little bit of fooling with carb and timing. Tinkered with it for about an hour.

More importantly, I thought that the carb might be too small but it seems to be working fine on the larger engine. Once I receive the o-rings in the mail I can see which one fits best for the fan belt. The plans can be finalized and castings will be for sale.

Congratulations Steve!
Another state of the art work. I hope when I work on mine, I get close as yours. You are really good on those little piece of art engines.

Nice job.

Edi
