Wow, nice work Bill! That is a neat engine, and it is a good runner.
You have made good progress on it as well.

Bill That is awesome and a quiet runner. The only thing I can't figure out is why it barks...... LOL

Don, either the dogs were barking approval at seeing it finally run or terrified of the fire breathing dragon looming over their heads...I think the later is probably more likely ;)

A short update to the work on the pump over the last day or so, some bling, which is uncharacteristic for me, and I received yesterday the globe valves from PMR, one of which will be for the priming cup which I still have to make. A few pictures follow

I like the bling. What did you used for the pad and compound for the engine turning?

Brian....sorry for the delay...have been out of town for last 5 days. I used just a piece of 1/4" dia craytex (rubberized abrasive) extended from a collet in the mill and dressed it several times during the process.

Fine looking build Bill. She sure runs smooth. I just finished putting all new bushings in one of these models for a friend over the weekend.

This is a fantastic build!

It only leaves one question, where can one find such a set of castings?
