Hello to all!

I was able to get some more work on the TI4.
I have fixed the engine to the wooden base and built the gas tank.
Because the base is very thick, it was not possible to screw the posts thru the bottom of the base. I split the post into two parts and use a wood screw internally then an internal thread to screw the post. Please see the photos you will understand what was done.

The only thing missing was the gas tank. I used a tube with 0.3 wall thickness. The two ends was a brass turned to the tube outside diameter with a small recess to fit the internal diameter of the tube then soldered it with tin.

For the tank posts, I had to eliminate the internal thread on the bottom side and added a small allen screw.




Next, the last work on this engine project, I provided two pockets on the bottom surface of the base to accommodate the CDI and the battery holder. It gave a very clean layout to the engine.

I have spent a several hours trying to get a better carburator response. I remade the carburator 3 times and could not get better result than this.

So I'm considering the project finished.

I am very grateful to all that helped me, giving tips and advises during the construction of this little engine.

This was my very first engine/project. The TI4 being so small was a big challenge but on the other hand I had the opportunity to develop some skills that will be very useful for the next projects.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL, especially the ones that followed this thread.


Next project will be the PeeWee V4 from Bob Shores

See you all on the next thread.

Edi, your engine, radiator, and stand are all very nicely done. The engine sounds great!

Ed, if you could ever make it to the USA and bring your projects to the NAMES Expo near Detroit, I'm sure everyone there would love to see your work. I was there this year and was awestruck at the work of better machinists than I'll ever be.

Thank you very much Jhon, Steve, Nelson, Cogsy, Natale, Chuck, David and Minh Thanh for the kind words.
I got lots of help from great people from here.

This my first finished engine project.
Do I need to post it on the Fiished Projects Forum/Section?

I already started the PeeWee engine. The block is finished. I will start a thread this week with detailed photos.

Thanks,

Edi
