    I've wondered about the same thing and agree there is some point at which the flywheels will rotate out of alignment. A locking taper is used, and the nuts used on the early engines are tightened a couple hundred ft-lbs, but engine rebuilders invariably find them out of alignment. Later engines had the tapered pin pressed into the counterweights and some racers even welded the ends of the pins to the weights. - Terry

    That is an awesome build. Thanks for sharing this great adventure. Do you have any build videos? That would be awesome to see. Your next project is going to have to be awesome because you have set the bar extremely high. Thank you again.

    Hey Terry
    First thank you for the complements on my design, but hats off to you, for the transformation of my piece of coal into the diamond you have created. Not to mention the fantastic, how to build documentation you have created. You have created a piece that should only end up in a museum. I am proud to be a small part of it.
    Congratulations on a great build.
