    Wow! That came right out of the blue. I assumed projects have to be completed before getting Project of the Month.
    I opened up this morning and thought "who on earth's that, looks just like mine!"

    Your comments are very kind, and very encouraging, and I hope I can keep at it long enough to get it running.
    I reckon another 12 months yet, but who knows?
    Been nearly 11 months so far.

    Thanks all again.
    Cheers, Keith.

    A very deserving project. I'm so envious of the talent to make this engine.


    Well done. :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

    Great looking work. I'd like to know if it is functional since I am new and do not know how to access details on it.
    If it is functional, how the spark pluigs are done?, carburetion or fuel injection?

    It is a good thing we can communicate with a key board, cause when I open my mouth to speak only unintelligible sounds come out :eek:
    Fantastic work Keith, if I ever get to be half as good as you I will be very pleased with myself ;D

    I don't think that would work in 1/4, unless you were planning to make it an R/C model. If I were you i'd look at some of these:

    Every day I visit this site I find another awesome project... and another... and another...

    Are you gonna build a Corvette to put this in so GI Joe can go pick up Barbie for a night on the town?

    Seriously. Great job.

    Kieth- I am late to the party but nevertheless floored by your craftsmanship with gool-old crank machine tools! This is one I hang pix of in my shop for inspriation. Again- well done.
