    Dear all,
    There my last finished project
    It's a amazing Hit & Miss engine unfortunatly not so polular on Continental Europe
    It's perhaps crazy, but the biggest difficult was the oiler cup's. Approx one day work each + several broken tools. But finaly it look & works like a big one.

    Zapjack, very nice looking engines. I would like to see a video of it running if possible.

    I live in Minnesota and have built the Red Wing engine also. I notice a slight difference in the castings you used. Are those castings cast in Europe?

    Hi Putputman, I don't have video recorder, but engine run's well. Governor does his job.
    It's very funny to hear and see H&M engine running.
    I buy this kit in 1998 by US supplier, but I forget the name
    What's differences with your kit? Pls post a couple of pictures. It's always pleasant to compare different design.
    Cheers

    Zapjack, a couple things I noticed is the head look a little different and the area were the gas tank is located is different.

    Please go to my web site to see my Red Wings and videos of them. I also show one with a drag saw.

    Ok I understand now. It's only personal choices and machining posibilities for head. And for the gas tank, there is enough area inside the castings to place it.
