I have had to go to the start of this build and catch up.  My word :o there is a LOT of work in this engine , and all very technical too. I'm blown away with all your added details. An outstanding build. :praise2: :praise2:

Hello Achim. I have spent the last three evenings enjoying every word, photo, video, and reader's coments on your most interesting and beautifully executed example of the Snow engine. Thank you for sharing this journey with all of us. I can only dream that some day I might achieve a success that perhaps would just begin to approach what you have accomplished. Your craftsmanship and creativity are an inspiration to me and I'm sure to many others as well. I will continue to follow your progress as you complete this wonderful creation.

Many thanks,
Don Williams

I love seeing these engines, esp. those that run.  I haven't seen a real one running, but the Cooper at Rough and Tumble in PA is quite close.

Excellent  :praise2:  :praise2:  :wine1:

It's interesting how much difference the cams made on this engine. Were you able to model or measure the actual valve timing before and after?
Best regards

Dear Gentlemen,
first of all thank you so much for your time to watch and giving friendly words and comments.
I do appreciate this very much and it is really a big fun and pleasure to be part of this community here.

Excellent  :praise2: :praise2: :wine1:

Hi Roger,
I have measured the timing situation before swapping the cams.
The original drawing / set up instruction says, outlet beginning opening 25 before BDC with the original 58 cams.
I have measured two times 25 degrees and two times 30/31 degrees.
If I remember well, than I could measure during my last attempts in autumn 2017  at this combustion chambers with 30 a higher temperature.
The recommendation from Jeff was to adjust 40 before BDC with 46 cams.
That seems to be the magic difference.
Kind Regards
Achim

Hi everybody,
spring in Munich, Germany and 18C outside.
So a good opportunity for some R&D work in front of the open window.
Something what could be nearly called a "long run".

Kind Regards
Achim
