"Tiny" Gasoline Engine
« on: May 12, 2018, 09:52:27 PM »
This is my recently completed "Tiny" Gasoline Engine based on Arv's design.  It includes George Britnell's design for the flywheels, rocker arm and connecting rod.  The sparkplug is a combination of Arv's design and my own.  The stand for the rocker arm, adjusting screw/locknut, pivot pins with cotter pins and the exhaust are my design.  The cotter pins are .014" (.36 mm) diameter made from half round .014 music wire.

The build log can be found here: http://www.modelenginemaker.com/index.php/topic,6968.msg144013.html?PHPSESSID=d5jvnbdkn6iarn12gsrfnd4ps4#msg144013

I need to shoot a video of it running now that it is complete.  Unfortunately, we have rain here today; so the video will be forth coming.

-Bob

Great pictures Bob. They really show it off well and I like the base too.

Thanks Kim.

Thanks Bill.  The base is just a piece of aluminum channel.  I have a strong aversion to the brown stuff.

Great looking engine Bob! I especially like the detailing on the rocker arm post and push rod end.

Thank you gentlemen.

 Rain is predicted for the entire week so the video probably won't be until the weekend.

Thank you for your kind words gentlemen.

It has literally rained everyday since my last post and the forecast continues to show rain.  (I may have to start building an arc as a new hobby.). Eventually, I will get a video posted.
