Thanks for the comment Bill; Thanks to those of you silently following alongÖ

Work has been progressing slowly on this model.  Lots of little parts to make, and lots of fitting and re-fitting.  A while back I was thinking it might be nice to build another of these, once I get this one done and figure out all the nuances.  At this point Iím thinking I want to get it done and then run a million miles from it. :hellno:  Yep, itís been a frustrating build.

I finally have both igniters complete and functioning nicely- so my ohm meter says.  I seem to have picked up a little leakage in the intake valves.  Iím hoping itís just a shaving or two unseating them, something a thorough cleaning should flush out.  Below- a photo of the engine so far:


Iíll give you a close up of both igniters- an interesting action and as you can see: lots of little pieces.


The other igniter



Finally, a video as I turn the engine over

One of the coolest things about the Standard engines, all the great motion on the top of the engine.
Nicely done!

No Roger, the photos are hosted in Google photos.  I just tried with a browser not signed into google and still saw them so I can't imagine why they don't appear for you???

Craig,
I think you let your shop gnomes out of the shop and they are fiddling with your photos now. Dangerous thing those rascally critters and electrical gadgets. Chris is right about post 162.

Those NASTY Gnomes, Chris would say, "Not enough chocolate chip cookies" no doubt.  I have the gnomes converted back into helpful shop elves and re-processed the photos.  I can see them so I'll assume y'all can too now.  Thanks for pointing this out.
