The Webster was fun to build, it runs well with the air bleed carburetor from the download section and some modification. The engine has a balanced crank and a modified rocker arm that uses a ball bearing to ride on the cam.

Very elegant!!! You certainly have a taste for "Damascening" (engine turning). Any chance of a video? We currently have a couple of other Websters being built here on the forum. I built mine about 4 years ago.----Brian

Very nice indeed!
I particularly like the flywheel treatment.
You may have motivated me to pull mine down from the cupboard and at least give it a wipe.:)

Beautiful engine and very nice detailing.
I like how you inscribed text on the flywheel and specs on the base, pretty cool.

Hi Bill.

Need some good advice.
Gus is still trying to recover from Trauma' of last IC Aeromodel Engine that refused to start and run. it did have some very unforgiving fits that I did missed.
The Webster Engine.Is it very forgiving. Will be very cautiousl this time with the fits.Plan to use aluminium for base,brackets and supports and C.I.
for cylinder.

Oh Man.........this is too good for a "1st"! The turning, engraving very eye catching. Looks like you're ready to belt up a hay baler or something so it earns its keep! I'll have to get my WEBSTER out and run in honor. Just remember.....it doesn't count till you get the video up!:D Dave.

What a great video. The engine truly runs as good as it looks. Congratulations, especially for your success with that carburetor. Carburetors have always (so far) been one of my major stumbling blocks. A great job, and a really nice video.---Brian

Hi Bill,
Great engine and video. Please advise gear ratio for cam drive. Planning to drop by Tokyo sightseeing and buy brass gears from TokyuHands.

Hi Gus.

The gear ratio is 2:1, I made the gears for my engine. The gears are 32dp, brass gear has 48 teeth, steel gear 24. I also used 12L14 for the cylinder, piston is 6061 T651 Alum. it has 3 cast iron rings .040 wide that I made using Strictly Internal Combustion magazine (#7, 8 and 9) written by George Trimble. The crankshaft bushings are made from Delrin AF.

Good Luck with your Webster build

Bill

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the vital info. Saves lots of time re-inventing. Having a terrible itch and trying to decide making the Rod Wrapping Machine or the Webster Engine.
Had great day fishing. Caught two fish for dinner at the Marina.

Man that's great! A little heavy on the jeweling for me but it is definitely good for a change from all the polishing. What is that threaded piece above the sensor?

Hi Bill,

Material for the Webster Engine ordered and collect this Friday. OK .Need your expert advice. Please advise the critical fits to watch for and meet to avoid heartbreak that I enountered with the previous mini IC engine which had some very unforgiving fits which I goofed.:wall::wall::wall:
This time Gus will not rush the machining.


Best Regards,

Gus Teng.
