Beautiful!




Oh, and engine looks good too!   :lolb:




I like the actual measurement, some places it makes more sense than just taking the plan size, which ignores tolerances building up.   :ThumbsUp:

Ok, the con rod  is .25" X .25" and is filed down to  .222 X .137". The hole is then drilled which is also.222" and this is achieved by using two 3/16" square shims to protect the vice. the outer part of the bearing block is drilled sawn and filed to shape.......

Hi Chris , this is the blossom actually from just this one tree......

more progress on the con rod and the actual correct cotters will be made later as they have the nut and bolt type of adjustment rather than the plain ones ...when the filing was undertaken with the straps ,the drill was used to size the slot and also to hold the part in the vice to file the stock for the other dimensions.....
