Jim she's looking stunning but I do have a question. I notice your exhaust porting that they are all linked together on one manifold. Do you have some sort of ball check system on this? This is an amatuer question and wouldn't that put air and cause back pressure into the other cylinders if you don't? I do realize that the exhaust is open but I am curious.

Regards Don

see your point Don but as its open to the atmos would the back pressure be significant as it would only be equivalent to the pipe "losses" which as long as its sized about twice the exhaust port size would be close to zilch

Welcome Jin,,,,,, may I just say what a beautiful piece of work!! Wow! Is this engine from your own design or are you erecting it from a commercial plan set? I would like to purchase a set of the drawings if they are available. Keep up the marvelous work and thank you for all of the pictures…. :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp:

Looks as if it might be set up for a RC boat.  Really nice work.   :cheers:
