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.

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,
Grasshopper

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