hi Rich: Your build inspired me to look at mine again. From your pictures it looks like there are some minor differences. Just wondering if you built from the original Lew Blackmore plans or if there are other modified plans floating around?

Very different than the Blackmore engine. Are the Hodgson drawings available? I would like to have a look.

If anyone is interested in building this engine, I have a copy of the original book by Lew Blackmoore which I would be happy to post anywhere in the world for the price of the postage and packaging. I'm in Queensland, Australia - let me know if you are interested. PM me.

G'day Rosco.
Just wondering if that book was still available?
Cheers.

Thank you James and Clockword, after coming back from a short out of town trip, I will try to fire up this engine, I´m really anxious!

I take it this most impressive piece of machinery has been built to a scale of 4" to the foot? Has there ever been anything akin (castings/drawings) for the LeRhone 9C in miniature? Thank you.

Thank you Paul!, I don´t know the LeRhone 9 C engine, however, I did machine the Ageless Engine (Lee Hodgson)) 9 cylinder engine, and Lee sells the casting and drawings in his site, that is a wonderful engine too, here is the link to that:

Hallo zusammen
Zunächst herzlichen Glückwunsch zu dieser wundervollen Arbeit!
Ich muss auch den Bentley BR2 vorher bauen!
Ich komme aus Deutschland und habe schon einige Motoren von Ohrndorf bauen lassen! Vielleicht wird es ein paar Gespräche geben.
Gruß Andi


Hello everybody
First of all, congratulations on this wonderful work!
I also have to build the Bentley BR2 before!
I am from Germany and have already had some engines built by Ohrndorf! Maybe there will be a few talks.
Greeting Andi

Thanks Andi!. I am in the monumental task of firing it up, just had a few pops, I talked to Lee Hodgson, he says there is a lot of fine adjustments on the go, I am on it, will post when I can get this engine to run
