I have access to brass, aluminum and steel in the sizes needed.

I also have a reasonably large supply of socket head hardware (black) could put kits together.

I will have to check but I believe I can put my hands on enough aluminum to do either the frames, the cylinders or both if need be, but it will take a few days to find out.

I take it those are bronze bearings in the frame?

Basically all parts would fit in a flat rate envelope, and that is $4.90. We would all be send the same amount of packages. So we can figure about $25 per person for the shipping.

If your parts are small enough to fit in a standard envelope, it may be less $ determined by the weight.

I will make the fly wheels from what ever material you guys would like. It really doesn't matter to me, so you guys go a head and vote. I don't want to make one if its going to be tossed aside anyway. Better yet, let me know who wants what. The motions will be the same. I also have Two 1" x 4" 12L14 disc's laying here also.

Let me know
Matt

Then you would only have to ship one box of parts to one person.
Just a thought.

Pat,

That makes sense, cause I ship you a flatrate box with my parts for everyone in for $6. Included with my parts is a 6 dollar bill that you will use to return ship the rest of the parts for me when there all done. So for $12 total shipping we all have an engine. It will save us 50% of shipping parts individually to each other.

I can get the cast iron for the cylinder heads. No problem there.

I am fine making 8 parts as well. I wouldn't go far beyond that point...

What is our time line?

I would at least triple that time. We are just the opposite and are busy right now. Plus I have to order the cast iron.

I don't have access to the metal for the frames and may not get it til after the first of the year. my shop is down until the snow clears and I can assess the damage from tree limbs/water intrusion. I may have to back out of this build and try to get in on one in the spring. Even then when combined with working full time, 4 weeks is a short window, I get 1/2 day/week shop time max this time of year
