    Hello Natale,

    The plans I have for the Upshur Vertical Single engine mention Boston Gear International as a source for the Y4830 crankshaft gear and the Y4860 camshaft gear. Perhaps Boston Gear has a distributor in your country.

    I have bought gears from HPC gears in the UK. http://hpcgears.com Delivery to Czech Republic was reasonable and quick.

    Looks really good. I made my own gears of 0.5 mod, so I had to alter a few things.
