|Thread: Valve Timing|
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
