Superb result 'kendo' - some excellent and careful machining there complimented by a very nicely produced display stand :ThumbsUp: If it runs as well as it looks then I guess you are well pleased with the outcome.

That's a pretty little engine, very reminiscent of the Morton 5 cylinder radial engine from the 1940's, except with only the three cylinders.

It was always intended as a static display but I did run it a few times to show friends.

Here is a very brief run  <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjXc10mmGx8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjXc10mmGx8</a>

Unfortunately I can't see the video  :( Did you use the embed function? If it's a YouTube video just pasting the URL works.

That runs well, makes me wish I had not given my set of drawings to someone else.

You may of noticed the carburettor is at 90 degrees , it should be at the bottom but it was
dripping fuel and there did not seem to be enough venturi  to draw the fuel up.

Nice work!

I was also going to ask about the carburetor.
One of my engine friends is currently building one of these; he is working on the rocker arms and has the majority of the engine machined.
