Cant even tell you how envious i am. Always wanted to do a model A engine. Is there another set of castings available?

Anyway I'll be keeping a close eye on this one.

That's really neat! You procured the castings from someone making finished engines...

Wow!

I found a link where you can buy a running version - not cheap though (nearly $4K) - LINK

look up profi engines right at the bottom of the page
I dont know where these castings came from originally or how they got to england but I saw them on ebay they were relisted twice and i could not really afford them but sold a recon engine from the shed just in time to bid
15 years ago when we first got the computer there was a complete one on auction I think it was from a collection and went way out of my reach price wise and I still cant believe I have these to work on just have to sit down with calculator and drawing gear and try to sort out the internals as I have no specs or plans other than bore and stroke

measuring and drawing from the full size specs every thing except the bore size scales to 1/5 so back to drawing proper drawings I can work with for building this little paper weight
the photo is of the twin carb hot rod model that hobby club sent me in reply to some questions I had a very helpful company to deal with
