    Making a dividing plate

    Tom. Well said. While building the Howell V-2, I had gears with 34,21,14,13 Tooth to cut. Would be an awful lot of indexing plates to cover these holes. Choose to go direct indexing. Giving the choice of having a mate to CNC drill this combination Index plate would be best choice. I am a loner...

    Howell v-2 four stroke gas engine.

    Hi Geo. No worries. I have the chance to make a new gear case. Aligning the crankcase and gear case so a to mate the elbow was tough. I had the crankcase hole plugged and drilled and got it spot on. Will be back on the work bench to start and run engine. This is after frying the umpteenth...

    Hi Steve, Taken in Nanjing,China 2010 when I was consultant at a small air compressor plant. The heating system kaput and I had to put on a scarf to help out. Wet cold at 2 C no fun. Being able to speak Chinese fluently was great help. The Chinese names for parts took me a while. Ha ha

    Howell v-2 four stroke gas engine.

    Howell v-2

    Gordon & Kadora. Jinx. You are correct. From day one when I covered with hand,the compression seems not as good as all other engines built.One last resort is to use Viton O-Rings.With other engines with O/head on,I could feel the bump at TDC. Not this engine. Good news. My sister flew in...

    Howell v-2

    Hi Brian, Hopefully by end next week,I get V-2 up and spinning/Vrooming. Belief the gas intake is very tricky.Danger or too much and too little. For now I am no expert yet. Soon as I get V-2 spinning Gordon will the first to see it on FB. Hi Gordon. Hang On.

    Vertical I.C. Rupnow Engine

    Hi Brian, Gus was trained by British Lecturers drafting and later working 32 years with Ingersoll-Rand,had no trouble to read/work with US Prints. I must be the odd engineer. Fortunately I somehow built your H&M Engine with no problem. But with the V-2 engine ,I fumbled with the mirror image...

    Howell v-2 four stroke gas engine.

    Hi Brian. Other than the false starts,I am getting nowhere. You will the first to know. There has been a pretty lot of goofs/mess. Now reading '' Constructing the Nemtt-Lynx'' which has lotsa info. Seems my engine building skill and start ups gone backwards. Sigh.

    Howell v-2 four stroke gas engine.

    Very First Pop/Sputter Had to lower the fuel cup by a wee bit to have fuel level slightly below fuel jets to eliminate flooding carb. Distinctively heard a pop or sputter. I would claim to be a false start. Anti-climax, "Cordless battery flat" . Will make another attempt after...
