    For my first post of the new year, I would like to nominate Maryak's 3cc Diesel. The engine looks good and runs well and that alone is worth the nomination. In addition Bob has taken us along with a four month work in progress report on the engine from cutting the first lump of metal to final video reports of it running. This topic has the distinction of having the most replies of any topic ever on HMEM and is third place in the number of views of any HMEM topic.

    The thread is "3cc Diesel - My first ICE " and can be seen at:

    I'll second that

    i like brians too.. ( I like his slinky machine too eh) but bobs build and showing of it was tops

    you'd pay a goodly sum for a magazine that doco'd a build any better

    and there'd be a catch for the full plans too

    jacks 2 cents worth

    I also vote for Maryak's ICE. :bow: :bow: :bow: The WIP photos and descriptions were full of excellent shop wisdom and the finished engine was a treat to see.

    Cheers,
    Phil

    I'll fifth that nomination! ;D

    A stellar effort, and a fine result, for what was a deceptively-tricky project. And the personal comments along with the progress reports made it all the more interesting.

    Well-deserved, in my opinion.

    I have to agree... A highly deserving project and a great candidate for EOM. Maryak shared it all in fine fashion.
