    Another “Tiny” I.C. My first model engine

    Hi Minh Thanh Thank you very much :) While it is my First model engine, I am no stranger to the machine shop. My daddy had me in front of a lathe before I was tall enough to see over the bench. Running a 6" Atlas standing on a milk crate more than 50 years ago. He saw my mechanical ability...

    For Sale Books on making engines and basic machine shop techniques

    Hi Bill I have a set of 70's vintage castings for the #9. I think I need that book ! How would you like to handle payment ? PayPal ? I am in Ohio. I also noticed in another thread that you may have a few Perkins Spring Coilers. Might one of them also be for sale ? Scott

    Next Project

    I have always wanted to see a Chrysler 426 Hemi done. I have seen a few people start but have not seen one finished. Maybe with the crossram manifold. My buddy has a couple of them if you needed any dimensions. Scott

    Another “Tiny” I.C. My first model engine

    Tiny is finished ! Back together and running pretty good. Not quite as good as before I took it apart but close. A little more fiddling with it and I am sure it will be good again. I tuned it for best lean mix with the throttle bore wide open. It was typically running about 6100rpm. Not quite...

    Another “Tiny” I.C. My first model engine

    Thanks George !! I have been running it this morning and working on the tune. I may have video yet today. Also I added some Black Chalk to my 2 part silicon putty and re-cast the boot. It set up fine and now I have a black spark plug boot. The light blue just looked a bit off with the other...

    Another “Tiny” I.C. My first model engine

    I got Tiny put back together !! ( I feel better now ) So before I got it all dirty by running it, I decide to do some "Glam" shots. Sorry about the dust, I really did not see it until I looked at the enlarged pictures :( I originally made the crankshaft long so I could machine off the center...

    Another “Tiny” I.C. My first model engine

    I just can't seem to leave Tiny alone. I feel bad that I took him apart. I got some polishing done today. I lightly scraped then sanded the con rod big end. There was a significant amount of Anodizing present. Not sure if I got it all off or if it will be a problem. Anodizing is oxidizing...

    Another “Tiny” I.C. My first model engine

    I did get the bluing done today. :) I have 2 different types of hot caustic bluing, one is your typical " hot salts" used for carbon steels. This is the standard bluing any gunsmith would use to blue a firearm. The other type of bluing is also a " hot salts" type but is of a different formula of...

    Another “Tiny” I.C. My first model engine

    I anodized the aluminum today. Body and tank blue and the main caps and con rod clear. I had put some "liquid electrical tape" (dries like rubber) on the bearing surfaces of the con rod but the anodizing acid somehow dissolved it at some point, so I do not know how much anodizing is on those...
