    All,
    Here is my Farm Boy engine completed. Thanks for all the help getting it running. Special thanks to Engine maker (Jim) for all his help and for the decals!

    2kmoss,

    Very Well Done. The paint and polish makes it attractive to look at and the video shows that it runs very well. I also like the brass touches here an there.

    Have you tried putting a load on it to see it you get a different pattern of hits versus misses?

    Again, Congratulations,

    Thank You! And no I haven't tried placing a load on it with my hand or otherwise. I did not even make the optional drive pulley as I wasn't planning on using the engine for anything other than building a running engine. If it's like my others it will get put on display in our living room never to be ran again.

    Was that built from castings or built up from plate, bar and round stock?

    Built completely from bar stock. It is designed to appear to be made from castings though, its a Jerry Howell design.

    Looking good. I've never built a gas machine before, only compressed air machines. This looks very interesting to build as it's from bar stock. Where can I go to buy plans to build this engine?
    Thanks,

    DDUUHH, if I only could read, I see that I can get the plans from Jerry Howell's website. Went there and purchased them.
