    Mike, very nice work! that is a great looking engine. I really like the sound it makes too. What did you use for the igniter coil?

    I have one of those under the bench waiting for my attention, I might have a few questions when I get to it.

    It actually has an ignition coil & mini spark plugs. I use a 12 volt relay for the points. Make sure you get the new drawing revisions, I helped to fix a few major bugs for Shelf Pet Models.

    Wow! Beautiful job on the Frisco; the wood and paint work are really nice and also your attention to detail.

    Did you make the name plates? I also have a set of these castings aging on the shelf waiting for me.

    Do you plan to add the ignitors down the road or just stick with the spark plugs?

    Thanks for posting,
    Dave

    I think I will stick to the spark plugs, I run my engines for about 6-8hrs for 3 days every year at a tractor club show in August. I try to keep all of my engines running & I don't have enough time to fiddle with ignitors. The name plates came with the casting kit. Make sure you get the updated drawings before you start, I helped to fix the bugs for Shelf Pet Models.

    Thanks

    Sounds like a proper boat engine and runs nice and steady. Beautiful work.
