I can hardly wait to see it running! I'm still trying to figure out that valve.....

Great news Chuck - sounds like you didn't have the valve problems you thought you might  :ThumbsUp:

Really looking forwards to seeing this run, so close now  :)

It's always a great feeling when they tick over like you planned it. Looking forward to the finished engine and video.

Looking forward to the finished product Chuck!
 No doubt she'll purr like a kitten. Will be another fantastic engine to your collection.

Here it is, complete with new, corian base...


Still got a bit of odds n ends to take care of.  I'll be taking the engine to show off at our Austin Metalworking club meeting this evening.

Lovely engine and runs a treat ...a bit of info about the engine...the cylinders were cast with bands around them in the early days , but they found that in the places where the bands were there was cavitation and air bubbles in the cylinder that prevented a good finish after boring. this is why they quickly abandoned this type of cylinder casting. keep up the good work

Beautiful work Chuck!
I really like the speed of the engine and the sound at the end of the video.

That's a beautiful engine, Chuck!  I love how slow you can make it run too.

I'd be interested in more detail on the rotary valve if you ever feel motivated to write about it more  :)
