    Hello!
    I've been on this forum for quite a long time, I've even started one project but didn't finish it.
    It's time for my first presentation. Videos of running soon!

    Wow, thats as neat as a pin! I would love to see how you built that throttle, I have been wanting to make one just like that but dont really know what is inside the thing.

    Thank you for comments!

    Nevadablue, bwal74 I didn't work with plans, I've only made basic model in Solidworks. The throttle, oil inlet, spring valve casing was made without plans, with the idea coming out of my head. If anybody is interested, I can upload Solidworks model here.

    Compressor man, here is a picture of all parts of the engine and throttle. It's absolutely basic throttle (just a valve with a hole)

    It's been some time...
    Finally, I've managed to make a short movie of this engine running:

    Actually I'm selling the engine. If anybody is interested, send me a message - I'll give ebay link.
