It certainly runs well!  Is it your design ?  Welcome to the forum by the way also. When you can, please post an introduction in the "Introduce Yourself" section so that we can welcome you properly to the forum.

Runs well, congratulations !
the screw holding the crankdisk on the crankshaft, may I suggest you to put a smaller one, recessed in the disk...

It have graphite piston, self lubricating that offers smooth running of the engine, also shaft oiler that makes oiling much easier. Also has alcohol burner with slot on the base plate, prevents moving of the burner and lock him on the place.

The screw act as counterweight, but i agree with you he can be a bit shorter.
