Finishing up the build .....

After doing all the necessary finish work on all the parts final assembly is next. Bench work to remove tooling marks, fine glass bead blasting, adding oil holes, and painting the flywheels after polishing.

The " wrist " pins were made from 12L14 .125 diameter ground stock and grooved for 1/8" e-clips. Some of the parts not pictured before can be seen in this layout. Brass pads were turned to go under all the set screws so as not to mark the crankshaft and allow for easy adjustment and disassembly of the flywheels and eccentrics.

Finished the assembly and mounting on a wood base with a diamond drag engraved tag.

Credit to Brian Rupnow for the design and drawings. THANKS !!!

The little oil cup ( center bearing stand ) was a left over from 30+ years ago when my wife and I made them for Cole's Power Models. An experience not forgotten.

Thanks everyone for all the views and comments !!
Thanks for the visit !

Brian,
The finish on this and all your engines is super. I really like the satin finish on the brass parts. You're going to have to dive into the I.C. world before to long.
Keep up the good work.

A marvelous build of one of my favourite engines. Fit and finish are superior to my original prototype. Congratulations on a great build.--Brian Rupnow

Very nice Brian!

I do agree with George, the finish on your parts is fantastic; I'm a fan and user of super fine glass bead and love the satin finish that they leave.

She runs pretty darn nice too!

OK what's next?

Great running engine Brian!  :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp:
I love how it is running so slow, it's just ticking over. Well done!
