How is the Peewee going Dave, did you ever get it finished off or is it still in progress? I'll be back on mine soon and I'm hunting up all the old threads in preparation...

Im thinking your V8 will be next Steve, is it much bigger?

Dave


I'm sorry Dave I missed the question at the end. The V8 is a little bigger having valve covers and much longer. It is still a 5/8 bore and stroke so if you did Peewee you should have no trouble.

Hi Cogsy
Yes the engine itself is finished, a few finishising touches to do on the radiator.
I have been trying to start it a few weeks ago, lots of noise but it wouldnt run properly, i stripped it down to bring home from work and have been so busy since I havent even unpacked it!!!

Looks fantastic! If it's making noise it can't be far off running... I'll hold my breath while I wait.

Hi Dave,
Nice work.
Another Aussie engine builder here.
Several including 4 cylinder 25cc four stroke boat engine, runs on methanol, grinding machines for cams and also another for crankshafts.
Presently doing castings for a v8 among other things. Mate of mine keeps me busy with electronic requests for his engines.
Wondered about your valve seats? Usually we cut our inserts at the same time as the valves.
Eliminates any difference in fit which can be a big problem, including hard to start.

What part of Thailand? We get back to see the family in Khon Kaen province every now and then.
