    ok, whilst I am getting all the drawings together, could you send us some links to your previous model building projects, to see if my plans would be suitable for you?
    Cheers, Keith.

    Kar, I would love to see a picture of the CNC milling machine that you made, I'm always thinking about making one as well.

    I have had a look through my drawings and sketches, and realise that it would take far too long to get them into a state where someone else could make a working engine from them.
    I'm afraid I don't have the time, or incentive, to sort it all out, so, apologies to the genuine posters, but there are no drawings available for this engine.
    Cheers.

    KAR,
    if you want your posts removed, why don't you do it yourself?

    Kar,

    "OUCH", I don't know what upset you so much, I cannot see anything wrong with the suggestion by a long standing member that you start your own build log. I went back through your previous posts and cannot see the reason you said was there for posting.

    Paul.

    Johnny, I haven't got a full set of drawings available to send out I'm afraid.
    I can send you some cad drawings of specific areas of the engine if this would help.
    Can I suggest you start your own build thread, where you can tell everyone who you are and whereabouts you are in your project?
    I'm sure myself, and others, will be very willing to help if we can.
    Cheers.

    Hi there, I see that the build is complete on many websites. Is there a kit you can buy to make this or anything? Really interested in owning one myself. Thanks, Kolin

    First message and asking someone to send you the result of his efforts!

    Are you going to participate or once you get what you came for, you ill run away?

    I hope no one gets offended by my message, but as a machinists community there are some behaviours I am not comfortable with.

    I'm not offended, I agree totally. People are always asking "where can I buy one" etc, etc, especially in thecomment sections on youtube.

    I'm always tempted to say getting an engine is simple really, just go to a community college or a technical school and take a machining course for 1-2 years. Then buy 10k or 20k or more of machine tools, and spend the next 10 years getting good at using them, and all the support equipment that goes along. Then simply spend a 1000+ hours building yourself an engine like this (at this point, you have an "engine kit"). It really is that easy.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one who gets offended when some rich person whips out there wallet, credit card, check book, whatever and starts trying to offer something so impersonal, for such a personal object.

    End of rant

    John

    Edit: Just to provide a little help to the guy looking for a V8 kit, I'm not aware of any right now. In the past something may have been offered, but since this is not a high profit business, small start up companies have a tendency to come and go, mostly go. If you want a complete engine, go talk to Connelly, who's been building engines for sale for quite a while now (his engines are very under valued imo, (I mean he's not charging enough for them).

    I think the last two messages sum it up quite well.
    Most of the requests for plans seem to come from China, although I can't imagine what they'd do with them!

    I would happily sell the V8 and probably the V10 for the right price, but the most I've been offered for the V8 is £200 and the chap seemed quite put out when I declined.

    Thats $292 USD What are you waiting for!!!


    I feel your pain. I had the same reaction for a 50 dollar set of drawings. Thats only 57 cents a page. The people who don't build seem to have no concept of what it takes.

    Shake it off knowing that your undertaking was huge and the outcome was spectacular.
