Default Red Wing Air Cooled Hit & Miss Engine

First post to this site. Hope this works. I should be attaching two photos and one video. About 9 months in the making for a really nice engine.

Like your engine elperkins. Is it running? What kind of ignition are you using? And fuel?
I will soon start building a similar engine my selves so I'm curious.

If this works it should include a link to a video of this engine running;

Aha! it worked!

With regard to your questions Rudy;

As you can see by the video, yes the engine is running, in fact very well. The ignition system is a buzz coil purchased from Neil Butterfield at Neilsniche.com . So far I have only burned gasoline in the engine. I also have an Upshur hit and miss that runs well on naphtha (also known as Coleman Fuel).
