I'll be following this thread as I've wanted to build one of these for 20 years or so. Is yours from the Lenaz plan set?

Thanks for that link. Looks like the JDW plans are based on the Lenaz plans but JDW's look better done.

I see you're using butane. I've only seen these run on acetylene. That's what I use. I don't think butane has enough energy. It is a pain to cart the tank around and I'm sure if butane worked, it would be used more.
Find someone with an acetylene MC tank. That should be enough fuel to run the engine for a year straight.

Incredible work! Congratulations. Now I know I'm on the wrong site! Do they have a site Model Engineering for Dummies? That's where I belong.:eek:
