Dave Otto, Dave (steamer), Graham, Roger, thank you for you kind comments, it really means a lot coming from such accomplished builders.

the Carb needed to be rebuilt because I was not happy about a couple of things.

The adjusting screw was "knurled" by slipping the screw into a piece of 3/32 brass tube and lining up the edge of a file and rolling the file along the head pressing down to form the ridges.



A pencil to give it some scale.



I also added a proper flange to mount the carb to the manifold, it still needs a little shaping and the throttle lever added.

I knew it was small but the pencil really drives it home Mike.  Just awesome.  Very impressive build.

Just though I should let you all know that I am stalled on this model at the moment. I is close by and will resume at some point. currently I am working on a small steam loco, a 45mm gauge coal fired model of an 18 inch gauge Beyer peacock Shunting loco, but don't want it to look like a model loco with oversized fittings which is proving to be a challenge.

Did you "just find something more interesting"  ;) ...?...  in that case I'm sure many others here know the feeling  :-[

I probably shouldn't make anymore comments about this as a thought about glasshouses and stones comes into mind  :old:

The next question - are there any pictures of the new build ?

Best wishes

Per

I still want to finish this engine but it is just on the back burner for now.
I started a thread in Vehicles.
