Moving on with my gas engine (Centaur) and not wishing to make 3 of them I was searching the internet and didn't come up with anything small enough.
Something about 3/4inch body diameter.
Any ideas on where such I might source them?

You could probably get away with just one on the cylinder and just have cups on the main bearings, most of the hit and miss engines I have made have that set up. They are not that hard to make but if you want to buy Debolt have a few suitable model size ones.

This sort of setup should be fine on yours

Thanks Jason, must admit the cups on the crank do look good, guess they have a pretty small hole through?
I like Debolts range of fittings in general, just a shame they are not over here!
I will get in touch with them thanks.

For the cups I use 1.2 or 1.6mm holes, if the flow is too fast you can pack a bit of wool into the hole. 1/4 x 40ME thread as is the cylinder one.

Just remembered that Forrest Classics sell the Redwing one, probably threaded 1/4 MPT
