Hi
I have just finished my version of stevehuck Demon V8 and I would like to thank steve for excellent drawings.
I started the build about 5 year ago and it sat in a box in the corner 95% finished (Life and other projects got in the way)
so about two months ago I decided it was time to finish it .

Very Nice.

Your perseverence is definitely rewarded. I hope this inspires me to "finally finish" some projects of my own.

Hi Graeme,
Can you upload some images of your workshop where the Demon was built.
How these engines are built are of great interest to many craftsmen.
Regards Dale

Nice build and great workmanship!
I've noticed that your engine is running in the ccw direction. With the little research and my interpretation of the drawings for this engine, the cam is setup to run cw? Did you have issues with this or am I missing something?
Cheers
Dion

Excellent work. My eyes, though (from looking at the fan belt), tell me that it's running clockwise.

Who's right?

Thanks for settling my confusion!
I watched the video of your awsome engine a few times and I was convinced it was running ccw, hence my post asking about it. I'll blame my work pc and slow internet connection there 😂

Nice Sounds great and looks awesome. Thats about how long I took 5yrs but I was still wrking a job and only touched it on weekends and when the snow was flying. You did a great job. The valve covers look like you did a lot of polishing lol. Doesn't it feel good now when you fire her up. I had to put mine on a high shelve or I continued to start them up every time I walked by them lol As Steve says welcome to the family!
