Hi Jason,
 She runs very nicely! Sound great too!

Read back over the cart build, that is also going to really look the part when done, to say nothing of the ideas on how to build bits!

Cheers Kerrin
Get excited and make something!

That's really nice Jason - and it seems to coast a long time when you hold off ignition with your finger, so we should get a nice hit & miss sound when you get the governor in place.

Been a while since I posted anything on the progress of these two but over the Christmas Holidays I managed to get the horizontal painted and then got lead astray by one of Mr Corry's rejects. However now  that those nasty castings are all machined and the paint had had a good chance to harden it was time to assemble the engine and take a couple of picies.

The green is a little washed out and is quite a bit stronger more along the lines of John Deere green.









Though when you take them like this the colour is less of an issue





No video of the painted engine running as when I was setting up the timing and governor I found the guy who started the model had made the governor arm 1/16" too short so the latch won't engage, hopefully make a replacement in the week and then give it a spin.

That looks terrific! Clever how the tank fits into the frame rail. Looking forward to seeing it all run!

Looks great, well done  :)

I know very little about hit and miss engines so I'm curious as to how powerful it is ? It gives the impression it could give a nasty bite  ;D

Very nice result Jason.  A good looking cart and engine.
It's too bad that those castings are no longer available ... or at least that was the state of play last month.
