Hi, and welcome. I'm in Brisbane and into engine building as well. My project is a radical re-design of a split single two stroke. You may have been able to help previously, as I had great trouble finding anyone to cast the twin cylinder alloy block for it. Eventually and luckily, the Pine Rivers Guild cast it in their small foundry to do the job.

Best of luck with your engine.

Welcome to my fellow qld modellers

@Kasey. Very special collection of skills at the trade guilde. Must admit I’m getting distracted (enjoyably) with the every day activities at the shed

cheers Jeff
