Slightly different Stuart Triple this time, it’s will have a bronze base cast from a 3D print (not by me) the rest of the castings are an eBay set of that has had the cylinder block started, but I will need to rework it to change the inlet/outlets over.
The crankshaft is one I made earlier from stainless I will also use stainless for all the steel bar stock, well that’s the plan.

Hi Steamingandy
I am learning from you build pics, I will be starting these parts shortly and I very much like your method of producing the connecting rods I will do the same when I get to these parts. My build has slowed lately as paying work is being done and a short holiday soon will post again soon.
Cheers

I have never seen a solution for supplying oil to the big ends, so I decided to try this a 1.6mm hole through the rod with a countersunk hole at the top under the cross head, it will either work or fling oil over the cross head, we will see.

A little more progress on the handed Stuart triple, the first machining of a newly cast bronze base, it will certainly stand out from the standard engines, the pictures show the process steps.

The base was cast by a gentleman in the states who is interested in creating a Stuart triple in bronze (no worries about water left after running on steam), I have made some parts for him in exchange.
