    That is where I guess the timing to be, TDC Using the timing light on the ign and visual on piston location/crank. I am pretty much lousy on working steel with any kind of decent finish. Did you start with 5/8" for your one piece?

    Damn, get it all back together, needed a new O-ring, I used the wrong type. Regardless, the damn thing sheared the tapered pin and silver solder on the flywheel side. Maybe I need to make one piece crank?

    Fusion 360 for a beginner

    Ikrestorer....yes you need to use the constraints, which can be a PIA, but down the road they are imperative. You using the "join" or "joint" function to put these together? I am sure there are many ways. Personally with what I do I split most of my drawings down one plane in the middle as I...

    Fusion 360 for a beginner

    Yes, they are frequently updating the menu's and not always will the interface look like the current program view. It is very intuitive though. As far as learning, we each learn differently and at different speeds. At this point, I don't watch any of the videos any more unless I am trying...

    Which O-Ring for piston ring?

    There are so many out there, I have no clue which to use for a piston ring. The one I got at the hardware store lasted about 10 minutes of run time. McMaster-Carr has a huge selection of types? https://www.mcmaster.com/o-rings

    Actually the rear was not firing at all, did not get hot. Valves leaking. (intake) Both sides actually compression gone.

    Mery 6-stroke kit.

    A bit longer run, in fact the longest yet. Had to make a new crankshaft after a backfire (I forgot to pin the darn thing first time around) Also got the water pump mounted, need to plumb it.

    Success. Need work on fuel system as it starves out. Need cooling system first.

    Mery 6-stroke kit.

    That was it, still need to improve valve sealing but got popping now. During all this, have been putting a little time in on the water pump. Much of it was to make gears 8t, 16 dp. I had a set of cutters for 16 dp, but the 'count' of eight was not listed for any of the cutters. Took a...

    Mery 6-stroke kit.

    Well I find out today that the issue was resolved. You see, on the exhaust chambers, someone, cannot say who this might have been, someone, drilled the holes bass ackwards. LOL. So got to fix them up and give it another shot. No wonder it wouldn't run/fire/do anything. What a stupid mistake

    Mery 6-stroke kit.

    Been getting some help and feedback. Trying to run on LP and use the mixer in the plans. Apparently just getting too much fuel and I need a demand regulator. Awaiting plans and more info, my assist person has personal stuff to attend to first and get me a file. Found a mixer...

    Mery 6-stroke kit.

    tWell tried to make her pop, but no pop. Did valve timing according to Newsletter data. I am getting spark at the plug. Got one pop, just one. Nothing but issues with mixing chamber so I think this may be the issue. Sure seems to me like not even close to enough air. As I remember a #60...

    Mery 6-stroke kit.

    I don't get it. I use the correct size tap and die and it doesn't start. NPT thread. What might I be going wrong? Finally had to go to 5/16-27 to be successful

    Mery 6-stroke kit.

    On to other items of need and interest in this project. Got to have elbows and T fttgs. Broke down and bought the tap and dies for 1/16-27 npt. Work well on the brass and bronze. Anyhow, the process. Drew up some elbows and T fittings in groups of 3 contiguous fittings in Fusion360. It...
