    Not yet. Working way too much and when I'm not I have been working on an attachment to turn brake rotors. I need to get my brakes done on the spare car before Zanesville next month. I has a huge trunk and rides nicer than the work car.

    Steve,
    I have to admit that I really like that muffler.

    Hi Stevehucks.

    Your engine beats B&S, Honda and Robin. Had been using all three brands to drive Ingersoll-Rand Type 30 Air Compressors during my rooky application engineer days way back in the 60s ------90s. Robin and Honda are popular with builders. B&S is light duty.

    A light media blast finish would make the crankcase very hard to tell from the real thing.

    Can hardly wait to see it finished. Nice work!

    Not a big deal but I managed to make and install the cylinder liner. After pressed in, it was machined down to allow the fuel to flow from the valve area into the cylinder and to match the top of the crankcase.

    Steve, the flywheel and cylinder liner look good.

    What material did you use for the flywheel?

    People always think of artists as a singer or someone who do painting. But I think we have quite a few artists on this site. Because these model's are a work of art

    sorry but no progress. Working every day. Wearing me out. Haven't seen the shop in a few months.

    BTW it's a Tecumseh 3.0 HP. It's the stock engine for the Ruttman frame.

    I'm afraid not. Work got crazy in my area so nothing in the last 2 years. Now that things have slowed down a bit I have been gearing up to sell spark plugs. I have been making fixtures and dies and writing Gcode and doing all the things it takes to make them. Soon I will have all that behind me and can concentrate on finishing the 5 or so projects I have started.
