    I agree with Cosby. I number all my engines like a Chevy. Not because that's what most people do but because I have worked on many and dont need to look things up. Just know the firing order. I had a small block Ford and always had to verify things like that. Go with what makes it easiest for you.

    I change the width in crankcase, the old size is not enough for bolts

    You can if your crankshaft is configured the same as the Peewee. Yours will also share a firing order with the Peewee

    You have done a very nice job on your engine. I like the the camshaft housing design.

    You've built a very interesting pushrod arrangement. I'm looking forward to seeing it in action.

    There are hex shapes at the base of your valve springs. Are your valve cages threaded and screwed into the heads?

    Hi kuhncw !
    The valve seat has only a threaded outmost part, I use bolts and a little heat-resistant glue (often used in large engines) to fix and sealed the valve seat, It's different from the way people usually do.

    That's an interesting idea for valve cages that I've never encountered before. Seems very handy - thanks for the info.
