JW,
The threaded piece above the condenser is my method of starting it. I wrap a string around and give it a pull.

Hi Gus,

Nice to hear you have your material. The items that I would take my time with are the cylinder bore, piston diameter try to keep the piston .002 of an inch smaller than the cylinder bore. The piston rings also need to be a good fit to the piston ring groove and the cylinder bore. Valve stem to valve guide clearance and made sure valves seal when closed. Hope this helps let me know how things are going or if I can help.

Best Regards
Bill

You really got a show off there, real nice work and more attention to detail than I have ever seen, I could not open either site of see it run or the plans, might be something here is the US that won't let me see them, thanks for the show us, would love to see it run, thanks again, Joe

WOW, that is impressive, not only looks good but runs good, that is something to brag about, your hours of lathe and mill work really made it a show off.

Webster plans can be found here Model IC Engines
Thanks Zebdog: a couple of copies added to my compendium of models to make... but I can't live long enough to make them all... But I do enjoy seeing the drawings (like reading a book, or music - if you can!). Different designers "kill the pig" in so many different ways - I'm fascinated by it all.
More plans please! (not CAD - had enough of that at work - I use a pencil and paper and calculator! - That way I understand things so much better.)
Thanks! - K2
