    I have neither the plans, the skill, or the hardware! I look at these big old flywheels and just weep!

    Super looking engine btw!

    Sweet.. I have just started up my own Farm Boy #651. Have some ignition problems to sort out. Do you have a build thread on this?
    What kind of fuel are you using? Found it difficult to get hold on clean alcohol. Runs grate with a butane torch blowing some gas against the mixer.

    Rudy Congratulations on your accomplishments on theFarm Boy #651
    I used a set of inition points and a condenser work good.

    Sorry no build thread on my Farm Boy as you where doing a good job on your build i just followed your build.

    Fule i used is "Coleman Fuel",
    also the spice jar carburetor works real good.

    Rudy lets see a video of it runing when you have the time to post one
    Thanks
