    Hello all from Snowy Pa,

    Does anyone have plans for the Upshure Vertical engine to share? I have built a couple horizontal IC's and would like to build a larger scale of the Upshure just for fun.

    Thanks

    Jim

    Issue #3 'Model Engine Builder' has the drawings I used to build the Upshure T Head as seen on my avator.
    I erroneously submitted this on another thread earlier.

    Thanks for the link Cogsy. That's a beautiful engine you got there Ray. I want to build a larger scale engine with finned head, open push rods and rockers for both intake and exhaust. I want to accent it with a lot of brass. I have never done a 2 lobe cam but it can't be that difficult. Getting the timing right might be a little tricky though. I have 2 nice cast 6" flywheels and have most of it built in my head. I just wish I had a simple free cad program so I could at least start somewhere to draw it up as I'm not very good at free hand drawing. The last engine I built was the Kerzel and it really is a nice running engine thanks to all the help from Brian:thumbup:

    Best to all from Jim in Pa

    Hi Cogsy,

    I have tried that link several times at different times of the day and can't see the pictures at all and can't even send them a email. Do you know of any other source for the plans/

    Thank you,

    Jim in Pa

    Sorry Jim, but that's the only source I know of. I do know the site is sometimes up, sometimes not. I just checked it and it's currently working for me, pictures and all. You could also try emailing them directly at purchase@upshurengineworks.com . Good luck!
