Many thanks to Mike Tull  ( Vixen) for coaxing me to look at a ball bearing crank.   It's a Schilling technique and pretty damn brilliant.   I'll end up with a straight accurate crank with hardened bearing surfaces.

It might be worth adding a link to the first posting to where the actual build begins  ::)

Hey Jo
When the build starts I'll start a build thread    this will remain a design/research thread.

Unfortunately, not my video, and It's embedded in FB.      It's a 917 without the body on, on the road dynomometer....with his foot in it

This link came up on ME forum while talking about flat 4 VW engine models, not looked back through the thread to see if it has been posted before

It's a flat 12....made to kinda look like a 917...but its not.   No cooling fan, and in other photo's   the output is taken off the crank...which is not prototypical for that engine..

but its a nice model!...

And Sotherbys made a lot of easy commission money (20%?) just for selling them.
