I'll do #s 21,22, & 23. I'm not equipped for screw cutting, so studs & nuts would have to be
done with a tap & die, which I can do if we're converting to non-metric....

Could the cylinder liners be made with trunk shocks tube? They're pretty smoth ans polished inside, and the one I have here are 16mm inside. I believe that would be possible to get more of the same dimension.

This would save some work and should run fine. Just a thought.

If the piston is aluminum an unlined cylinder would be a bad idea. The cylinders for TB4 had a brass tube pressed into the bore for an aluminum piston. Maybe a liner from some 12L14 would be a good idea.

The plans call for, M3 dome nuts and washers(36), M3 studding (12in)
so mutiply that by the number if engines thats what we need.

As for the bases< I dont know about anyone else but I am good with whatever you decide.

We need ti give it a few more days do see how many members we got on this build and then we can get on our way.

we are going to build one extra for auction right? thinking of making sort of certificate for that one with names of all builders? just an idea maybe.
i'll get all nuts, washers and enough threaded rod for all engines than, least i can do since i cannot realy machine something at the moment. so that will all be covered.
