This is my first post to this forum. After a few years of learning this for you experts I decided to jump in with both feet. I have always wanted to build a FLourCity tractor engine so after building a few casting kits and gaining some experience. I started measuring one up that a friend owned. This took a couple years as he is several states away. I bought a Tormach 440 and began the learning curve. it took me about a year and a half of machining and this is what I came up with. Many thanks to you all for the expert advice I have learned from the sight over the years.

Video of an earlie run of the engine. The governor was an after thought and I am still working on getting it to spin. The cam is one piece, including the gear, If I had figured the governor in earlier I would have added a pulley to the cam.

The valve train designer had a very artistic eye! That engine is unique. Nice work!

Don't think I've ever seen on of these, very nice looking tractor, and your engine looks great! No grass growing under your feet to learn all the cad/cam/ cnc skills AND produce the engine in such short time. Well done.
