Hello to all from Germany
« on: May 14, 2020, 07:01:37 PM »
My name is Stefan and i live in Ludwigshafen in Germany. Im not new to this forum, been here for a while but only reading.
Im into building IC-engines as a Hobby since maybe 15 or more years. If you like, you can see my finished products on my website or on my YouTube channel (Modellmotorenbau.de).
At the moment i have a modified Benz Motorwagen Engine on the bench. It`s already running but there is still a lot of work to do on this engine.
I also like to go fishing, fresh and saltwater and flying RC-Model Airplanes. I turned 60 last year and Im planning to retire soon.
More time for the Hobbys  ;D
Im always trying to help, giving something back, so feel free if you have any question.

Regards Stefan

Thanks Jo

That was the very first run on Vapor Gasoline. Meanwhile i changed over to a homemade carburator and liquid Gasoline because of the missing lubrication with Vapor Gas.
And the engine already starts by hand. I just finished a building a constant level Tank which i want to use with this engine. I will post some pictures....
