It's not much of a video; but here it is:



It is not pretty right now. It has a temporary rubber ring around one flywheel to aid in starting.  The magnet for the ignition is mounted in a temporary Teflon block pressed on the crank.

Congratulations Bob. Sounds to be a good runner.
We got 12 of snow yesterday! Im on the way out to push it out of the way so I can head to the NAMES Expo later in the week.

Whats the next build?

Great news after your trials and tribulations with this one and a good runner too  :ThumbsUp:

I had a few full size engines that turned out to sparkplug related too  :zap:  :Mad:  :cussing:

Thanks Jack.  The next build will be to finish an engine that I started many years ago designed by GailinNM called Lobo Pup Twin.

Thank you Carl and thanks for following along.

Thanks Per.  Those darn sparkplugs!
