I don't know who Eric is. Do you think he would lend out his pump mould. Is he contactable?

Thanks Joe.

FYI:

That should be "Jo" as in "Josephine", not "Joe" as in "Stalin" (Jo is of the female persuasion)...

Hi

     I made my Bentley without any castings and no CNC.  It can be seen running on YouTube.

MIke,

It was after seeing your youtube clip that inspired me to start this project.  So it is all your fault that I now spend so much time in the workshop!

Hi

       Thanks for the video Jo I wouldn't know how to add one.
       Thanks guy's for the kind remarks and well done John for getting so far, the book is a guide to build more than accurate drawings.
       I'm very pleased with the way the engine runs, it's starts a lot easier now than the video, I had moved the ignition timing and was
       very advanced I don't know it started at all.

       Mike

Excellent  :praise2:  :praise2: I guess that the long and somewhat tortuous induction piping doesn't help starting either. The strobe effects on the propeller and cylinders are also quite impressive  :)
Best regards
