What were you thinking? I did a team build that went real well (TB4) so I would be willing to do it again. Who's design would we be using?

I'd be up for a team build. How about Chuck Fellows 3 cylinder radial? It's a good looking engine.
I have easy access to material and some spare time.

Regards,
Mike

wasnt really sure as to what radial I dont have any plans.
I Thought that if there was a set of plans floating around that it would be a nice challange for a team , and that is why i was thinking of a 3 or 5 cylinder to keep the parts list down a little.


is there a link to the (Chuck Fellows 3 cylinder radial) or pics ??

Any ideas as what ony to do (if enough interest)

Chris,
Chuck has a thread on his engine in the finished projects section, but there are no drawings.
Plans are available for Rudy's radial 5. Do you want a compressed air engine or an I.C.?
Does anyone else have any interest or suggestions?

Just saw this thread. I'm in the process of revising the valve system on my radial. I'm getting ride of the push rods and overhead ball bearing valves. I'm replacing them with a rotary tube valve like I used on my 4 cylinder opposed. It will be much simpler and more reliable.

Chuck,
Will the plans for the revised version be posted? I guess we're looking for options for a
possible team build of a radial type.

I'd love to join a team build! But since I'm in Brazil I think it'll be a little difficult to participate.
If you guys are still in need of someone to join, I'm here!

I guess I'll see how it turns out before I commit to supplying any drawings.

Chuck,
That sounds like the prudent thing to do. If this next team build chooses another engine
I'd like to build a copy of your 3 cyl. just for the way it sounds.

Regards,
Mike
