I am in the process of powering up a model tug. To do that I am building a "Seadog" as sold by Scratchdog Motors and as featured in Model Engine builder.
1" bore and stroke 4 cycle of a distinctively "Westbury" style.
The engine will be built for RC, and I would like to finish her out in traditional early 1900's flare....bling if you must.
I intend to put a forward/reverse transmission and a centrifical clutch for operation.
There are some changes from the original, some for "use and abuse" sake and some because as the president ( small p ) of my own engine manufacturing company, I get to choose the "Bling"
This is my first IC engine.....but not my first engine....if you know what I mean.
So here's where we are:
Boring and facing the crankcase
Timing case started
Timing case on the block
Setting up to make custom bolts
Filing rest set up for Hex heads on bolts
Hex Heads complete...about 2 minutes per bolt.
boring the timing gear cobore
boring the cam gear cobore
first operation on timing gear cover casting.
