Hi Jin,
Very nice work!
I'm really enjoying seeing your work on this engine.  You may not be getting a lot of replies, but I'm betting a lot of people are enjoying at as much as I am.
Thanks for sharing the pictures of your build.
Kim

Roger B......"You said you only had limited tools"...I think it is all in the  :facepalm: translation....I have two of the Microcosm 6 bore x 5 stroke piston boiler feed pumps.....the physical quality of Jin's manufactured components confirms CNC tooling and CNC laser  :stir: cutting...........
