Stuart, yes.............I can't put it off much longer. I've been working on my plan on just how to hold the Frame for drilling the Crankshaft holes.  :headscratch:


That's really the core of making these things isn't it? These castings are just so awkward. It's part of the challenge that attracted to castings and want to try making engines this way.

Zee, if you look at the last picture, you can see where I drilled 5/32" for 1/8" and then on through at 1/16". That creates a bit of an oil cup for oiling the Crankshaft.

 :facepalm: I get it now. I don't think I'd finished my 1st cup of coffee when I asked.
