Thread: Valve Timing
16/12/2018 16:09:36

Having just completed the build of the Bolton Engine I am in some doubt as to whether the valve timing is correct. Due to a lack of exact information on the drawings I guessed a setting of the valves starting to open at 10 degrees after TDC? The engine is not self starting but runs very nicely at 150 RPM on air or steam. Before I strip the engine for painting I would like to have some confirmation as to whether my settings can be improved?

I would be pleased to hear of the experiences of another builder.

Regards Dick Castle
