Well let me start with an apology to anyone left hanging from my last post to those of you have have just flatly fallen asleep from boredom waiting for another update. I have been somewhat sidetracked with this project with trying to catch up with some previously started projects that have been left wallowing in despair at the back of the shop.

Photos below show the causes for the delays.

I should have the V12 running again in the next couple of weeks.

Cheers for now

They look way better in person I tell ya all. Those pics don't do the work justice. Dean does fantastic work because he has the "want to" The want to make this, want to anodise that, etc etc etc. Keep the pics coming Dean.

Just had a random thought. Have you looked at a compressed air starter? An air driven die grinder might have enough torque and can spin up to over 22k. All you'd need is to turn up an adapter that would fit the 1/4" collet.

Bonus is that it would sound really cool.....

Well as far as vid's go, apart from the previously posted ones there's nothing new to show. engines above aren't quite finished yet but, rest assured, as soon as I get my A into G and finish some of them the filming will start, not my backside this time either lol.

Cheers

Dean

Thanks, although I am still trying to get the time to run it up again as I have made and fitted a new set of carb barrels and also Refitted the toothed belt blower drive with a slightly different drive speed so it will be interesting to see how they affect the running, If it runs at all that is

Cheers

Hi Dean, the video was worth the wait! Great to see the safety rated foot gear in use... Good luck with new carbs and blower drive adjustment. JD

Well as its been quite some time since my last little model engine confessions and even longer since updating this thread I thought it high time i pulled finger (as they say) and posted a bit more on the V12 project. I decided to do a bit of a rethink with this engine and went ahead and made some sand casting gear and cast up a couple of new cases for the V12. photos below show the depths of insanity that some will sink into if left alone long enough.

So hears the end results

Yeah I know I said a couple but if I want to end up with at least one good engine I should probably allow for so oopsies, lol

cheers for now

Dean
