    Well the Little Demon V8 project is officially done. Now don't panic, I do plan to carry on to finish the blower motor but I need to take a few days off and relax. It took just short of 15 months.

    The Demon was designed to be a simple V8 project for the guy with small machines. Every V8 that I am familiar with is 1/4 scale or larger. This project is close to 1/5th scale. I used the Peewee V4 as a platform and stretched it out. The heads were completely new as was the intake and carb. The crankshaft and rods were beefed up. What I ended up with was a Not simple V8 that can be built on small equipment. Not as complex as most of the V8's out there, there is still a mammoth amount of parts that have to be made. If you plan to build one of these, you might want to pack a lunch. Nuf said!

    I just can't imagine what the October POM will be. ???

    Normally fairly articulate, I'm lost for words.

    Absolutely Beautiful Steve! What a jem.

    Thanks again for putting together a great drawing package for the rest of us who might dare to attempt building one.

    Just awesome Steve. When I consider that it took me almost four months to make a single cylinder engine that ran well, it really shows what a master craftsman you are.----Brian

    Thanks for the journey Steve.

    In my language "Oortstralian" Bloody magnificent.

    I love it, especially the way it sings when revved. :bow:

    It seems sad to try and think of something to say in closing, as we all have enjoyed this build so much. This is truly a gorgeous piece of mechanical art. Quite worthy of a giant marble triumphal arch leading to your shop. :bow:
