You have to feel pretty cool about that one.
Doing a project some time ago without knowing the future and then being able to apply it to a new project...that's pretty cool.  :ThumbsUp:

Hey Brian, what is the diameter of the disc on your reversing valve?  Looks like about an inch?
So many projects, so little time...

Chuck--That reversing valve worked so well that I started a separate thread on it with full details.---Brian

Excellent log of the build of this fine and solid engine.

It's a beauty!
