Looking great, I will be following your build. Do the plans call for the ignition and bevel gear arraingment to be like the original, like in the video you posted? I have seen some of these models built with a slight variation.
 
hello
on the plans the ignition is fixed under the steering wheel
 
hello
carburetor and muffler

I shall be watching this one with interest. It looks like it might go well into a scale car. Also that company might be of use to me with my latest project as they offer bespoke casting services.
 
Wow you’ve done a great job, beautiful looking engine.
About 6 months ago I made a Benz Patent Wagon, a static version out of scrap wood and copper wire, no plan just pictures.
Would love to build a working version like yours.
Well done sir .

Great job, looks great. Did you make the bevel gears? When are you going to post a video of it running?
 
hello
yes I machined the bevel gears with a strawberry for spur gear, the video this weekend.
