    Well deserved. This is a really interesting build, so much so, I occasionally go back to the beginning to see it evolve

    Thanks again everyone !!!

    Stout, it is one half scale. The overall dimensions are roughly 6.625" height (excluding base), 6.25" front to back, and 5.625" (side to side, inclucing pulley shaft).

    Very nice Bill, Your Briggs brings back alot of good memories for me. My dad built my brothers and I a go-kart back in the 60s and used a full size engine just like yours to power it. He cut up his old cushman scooter so he could use the material for the go-cart. It wasn't very fast but it sure was fun. Anyways, thanks for stirring up some good moments from the past. I admire your work and can't wait to hear it run. Dave

    Congrats Bill

    A great surprise to see your work in progress given such well deserved recognition. For me the work in progress is what it's all about and yours is certainly amongst the best here. Considering the standard on this site, that is no mean feet.

    best wishes

    Good Job. I always liked the full-sized ones and a little one is great.

    Bill, as a new engine builder doing my first engine I also think your engine is completely deserving of the Project of the Month. Your detailed level of documentation has helped me with my piston ring machining in a way I had not seen before, and it seems to have worked very well. Congratulations.
