Title: ford model A progress
Post by: the engineer on December 30, 2018, 08:29:31 AM
 slow progress  but better than none  had to scale full size specs down to one fifth to get the dimentions that  will work with the castings
tried contacting the makers of the castings  but nothing forthcoming  been trying for over a year now so i decided to strike out  and see what i could do scaling down the full size parts
and here is the start need to re do the camshaft as the lobes are not  exactly in the right spots but i know how to correct the next effort
once i am happy with the crank hopefully  liners and pistons next

I'll be following this build.  That is a nice looking casting set.

Great size too...not huge but not so small as to be tedious either!!  Watching along as well.

Were these made by Roy Lee Baker from North of St Louis,Ill USA ? I knew him along time back . He was making many model's at one time.
