    Except for some work on making a settable throttle, I am considering the project complete. After the first video I wanted to add one showing the engine running at more of an idle speed which it now does rather well albeit with a little jumping around when it misses now and then. Its still has much less than an hour of run time so i hope things will smooth out even more with some additional time.

    There are a few final pictures and below is the link to the youtube video:

    Hello Bill,

    Wonderful job. It is amazing how it has all of the running characteristics of the full size engine as well. Thanks for documenting your build. Congratulations on a superb model.

    Kind regards,
    Mike

    Thanks to all for the nice comments and for following along on this long build log. There will be a bit more tinkering over the next few weeks, but also a new beginning on the next project. Meanwhile its nice to just sit back for a bit and enjoy all the wonderful projects here on HMEM!!

    Awesome job. Thanks for taking us along for the ride. Will you be bringing this one to Denton this summer? I'd love to see it next to its big brother.

    Thanks,
    Jon

    Thanks capin and Jon. I don't usually go to Denton but will have it at Cotton Ginning Days in October for sure. I see you are just up the road from me and would love to see some of your antique engines as well...maybe we can figure something out while the weather is cooler :)
