    Hello All,
    Just a short note to let you know that we intend to release an air cooled version of our 1/3-scale Parsell & Weed Hit and Miss engine kit at Cabin Fever 2020. Todd is currently working on finishing the horizontal prototype engine and hopes to have it running at the show. Here's a rendering of what it will look like.
    See you at the show,

    Looks great. I have been gifted a casting set of the water-cooled version from a friend and it's high on the list to make once I finish my (many) current projects. I must say the kit looks fantastic and the plans are very nice. Hopefully I don't mess it up too badly.

    Sharing a photo of the air cooled prototype in its present form. Most likely will not be running at Cabin Fever. It looks like I have a leaky valve. I do not have time to correct and still get ready for the show. Should easily be running for NAMES. I do have a running water cooled version that I will be bringing. See you there.

    That's a shame, it looks great though. What do you think is causing the leaking valve?

    Thanks Harry. My guess is that the guide and seat are not concentric. I'll need to make a small cutter to re-cut the seat using the valve guide. I will have a running water cooled engine though. That's also new for this year.
