Thanks Florian  :ThumbsUp:

Cheers

Hi,
as the opening of the ignition port occurs during the downward stroke, one would have expected that the pilot flame is at first aspirated before being blown by the explosion... maybe the ignition port closes too late, the spring being too hard ?

Living in the UK sorry the old truck cannot make it that far but a great idea. We do the same here with old machinery buffs/modellers meeting up in local camping areas owned by a friendly  farmer and enjoy a chat, bonfire and a few brews!!!!!!/?????  :old: :DrinkPint:

Excuse me Chris, if being simple but have you recessed drum into end plates or just nice snug fit? trying to see transition from end plates to drum.  :old: :DrinkPint:
I thought about recessing them in, but having the ends of the drum taper out to thin points looks good as is, so the end plates just butt up to the drum. Had to handle the drum carefully since the tips are a bit sharp.

WOW,

That has so much ambience it is almost as if I was in there at lights out time.

Really well done and I have been following your progress for a long time and am still amazed at the high quality of your work and attention to detail.
