    This is my finished Clan which was very challenging but very rewarding to make.
    I think this may be the start of my two stroke addiction :)

    Very cool! Congrats on a beautiful looking as well as running engine.

    Revealing my woeful ignorance about this sort of engine: what does the lever on the top of the cylinder adjust? Is it a throttle, or ... ? Also, what fuel are you using?

    awake,
    The lever adjusts compression as these engines are in effect variable compression ignition so no power needed. The fuels is a mix of Ether,paraffin and castor oil. You can Google for more on these engines and the fuel.
