Hello everyone, I am fairly new to this forum and new to model engineering in general. As a first project I decided to make Brian's version of the Elmer beam engine. I have almost completed machining all the parts, just a bit of work to do on the base and some silver soldering and then I'm ready for assembly. Now here's where I need a bit of advice. Having never built anything like this before can someone explain in simple terms about the setup and timing of the engine. For example what position should the crank and con rod be in in relation to the throw of the eccentric rod. Any advice would be much appreciated.
