Thanks for posting the pics. That is some nice work you have done
Hilmar, I have a twin compound casting kit that I hope to start in the next few months that was cast around 1960, and it also lacks the ‘S’ in the valve covers. My old drawings show 4-corner bolts as you describe, but no 'S'. I wonder if/when Stuart ever did include the ‘S’ in the launch/compound engines?Georg,
on the launch engine, I wonder if the castings where original from Stuart Turner.
On the print from Stuart the valve cover shows only four screws for hold down ,also the cover
has no " S "cast into it. On my castings;" I bought from some one on the web not E Bay" they also lousy castings
and the dimensions are odd and the same just as yours and no 'S' also. They look like a copy.
What do You think.
You said that you made a cover over the valve ports, did you glued it
in or just let it be loose and how thick did you made it?
Hi Stew,Its great to have you with us George! and may I say you have had such an interesting life, I am fascinated by the millwright part, does that mean wind and water mills?
