Got a small propeller of EBay so had to make a prop washer for the crankshaft end.

So the engine is now complete , unfortunately the carb I bought is not suitable so I need
to find a replacement. The carb I bought is a 'slide' carb and will not fit properly between
the cylinders so I need to buy a rotary versionimg_0065 (medium).jpg

Excellent build log David, have just read all the way through with great interest and learned a lot from the work holding set-ups and the design, especially of the epicyclic geared cam drive and internal fan to stir the air in the crankcase.

Many of the work holding set-up were especially interesting, this being an area where I have little experience - that proved invaluable.

The standard of machining is excellent too, resulting in a lovely engine to be very justifiably proud of.

Well done that man,
