George, if I hadn't just driven 500 miles each way to CF, I would sure be tempted to drive up to NAMES if only to see your work and Steve Huck's and to see this little gem in action. Congratulations on another perfect model...I suspect the running part is even now a foregone conclusion :)

Hi George, I have spent a long time to look at these pictures of your engine. The more I look at these pictures, the more I recognize amazing details at your build. It is fantastic and so impressive to see it. Perfect job.

George,
Your new engine is really impressive. It shows what the ultimate in engineering, craftsmanship, and industry of modelling are. I copy your pictures and refer to them all of the time as the example of what I aspire to achieve. Thanks.
Mosey   :cheers: :cheers:

Piece of art george  :praise2: I hope when I have my 3D CAM software up and running I will be able to get more details in my parts, by hand its out of my leage......

Hope to hear this beauty running soon.

Well i couldn't think of a better way to spend a Sunday than going through ea and every post :-)
A true work of art as many have said and a piece of engineering to be proud of and will inspire many for years to come

Thanks for resurrecting this post - definitely worth reading!

I had a variation on the straight-6 Ford 300 engine for some years - it was in an old F100 that I bought many years ago - but it was a 5-cylinder engine. Well, I guess there were 6 in the block, but 5 that actually worked. :)

Of course, I only paid $50 for it - and got a lot of years of occasional use out of it for hauling mulch and such - and sold it for $200! :)
