    Drawings for Shaefer's Little York

    Hello, I don't know exactly how those copyright laws work, I have been trying to get in touch with Ministeam, who, I think are or were the suppliers of this casting set.

    Drawings for a Shaefer Little York

    1/4 scale International M

    Hello, I have wanted to do a similar build. I have 3 sets of sleeves and pistons left over from a Renault Caravelle rebuild they have roughly a 2" bore. And will take a fairly long stroke. I thought that the M engine would be a good place to use them. Now all I need is time! What is the bore...

    Rick, That would be a Rumley Oil Pull, They were a well known manufacturer back in the 1920's I believe they were bought out by Allis Chalmers. That should be a water cooled engine from the looks of it, at least I can't see any cooling fins on the cylinder, and the square box on the front served...

    die filer from scrollsaw?

    Ed, There is no need to "cut up the Craftsman scroll saw. Just remove the overarm and mount your filke in the chuck. They were made for double duty when they were new. There should be a nut, about a 3/4 on the back side of the overarm that removes it.
