Nice work so far! Plan to run 2 bearings on the rear of the crankshaft. It will lock the tail shaft in alignment with the bore and help support the crankshaft in the event the flywheel is a little out of balance.
Hi Steve
Yes I do have a second bearing for the rear of the crank
The only one i could get is a little wider and sealed both sides, could not get an unsealed one, but it fits ok and will give good support

Another step closer. When I saw you'd posted I was half expecting to see you'd fired it up - not that I'm rushing you, I'm just excited!

Hello Michael!

Very nice work. Congratulations!

I'm also building the same engine, however I'm following the drawings revised by Steve Hucks. There are some differences of some parts due to modifications that Steve provided on the project.

My thread is https://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/threads/another-peewee.30419/
I already have some progress done since last post. I think I will be able to post it this week.

Where did you get the distributor cap? I'm planning to machine mine, first draw it on the Fusion360 then machine on the CNC milling using SprutCam to generate the G Code.

Great job! I will be expecting to hear it firing soon as Cosy said.

Tks,

Edi

I got the distributor cap from Dirk Tollenaar, he sells the Peewee castings

Need to make some pushrods and figure out how to set up the distributor with hall effect sensor and get the timing right

Slow going but getting there

Looking great Michael. I'm wondering how to mount the hall sensor as well so I'll be following that part with even more interest. I really need to get some engine mounts made and mount up my engine so I can see how far along I actually am. I think I'm getting close to running of out the major parts to build.

Nice build. Mount the hall effect sensor in the mounting base I assume you will have slots cut in the main crank pully or the flywheel similar to what is used as a crank position sensor in modern engines. The other method is similar to that used in printers, an encoder disk with optical pickup, or hall sensor.
