Hi all,
I figured out why this engine wasn't running... kind of embarrassing, I had installed the valve block backwards. The .062" Ø holes that feed the cylinder and piston were facing the wrong way. I was dismantling the engine preparing to re-do the valve block bore and valve assembly when I noticed that the block was backwards. I turned it around and re-assembled with fingers crossed and it fired right up!

Here is a movie (I hope, first time uploading a movie)


And a link to my first time build thread.

Thanks for reading,
Gerry
