Thanks fellow hobbiests! :praise2: I'm probably going to go with a larger fuel tank for Overtime.....that extra cylinder is using all the gas up! :lolb:

Watched it again , love the mechanical sound it makes - perhaps the tappets? Have you considered to enclose the bottom to allow splash lubrication? One wall could be from plexi or similar to allow view on rotating components. Just my thoughts

I also like intake being made from delrin.. No heat transfer..

Thanks Peter. I have just enough WD40 in the Coleman fuel to sling a few droplets onto the cams for lubrication but not sling oil all over the table. Since there are oilite bushings and roller bearings for crank and rods there is no lub maintenance of the bottom end.  Delrin a good material for intakes! When I start Overtime my index finger is over carb with thumb on back of manifold so when I refuel and choke start again, I never get burned. :ThumbsUp:

Overtime gets a new underslung fuel tank to extend run times to 14 minutes. :)

Didn't catch the video until today. Congratulations on a smooth runner. The final clean-up makes it look good as well.
