It's done and it's a runner. I still need to fix some leaks and do something about the setscrew pushing the flywheel out of balance but it's close enough to show.




 
Here is the obligatory video of it running.

 

Till next time.

Congratulations!  :ThumbsUp:

Interesting design. It'd be great to see a close up video of it running.

Very nice Tony, and it certainly has a very interesting motion to it. Looks to be running very smoothly as well and sounds great too.

Thanks everyone. Zee, I do have a closer shot from one of my earlier runs that may give you a better idea of what's going on.




Now I need to figure out what to do for my next project.

Nice runner Tony. Well done.  :ThumbsUp: Thanks for a closer view. It'll be neat to see it close up and slowed down once it gets broken in. The action reminds me of a martini being shook!  :Lol:

Congratulations Tony!
It's always exciting to see them running after you've put so much work into them!

I'll do something small as a tide me over until I decide on my next big project. I have a Stuart ST somwhere in the closet of castings. That will probably be the next one.
