And that's it for today!! The support feet are attached to the crank-case. I have to trim the length of the bolts, but that can be tomorrows job.

At this point in the game, just as I am about to machine the cylinders, I have changed the design of the cylinders and cylinder heads. My original cylinders and cylinder heads were exact copies of the cylinder and heads that I used on the 7/8" bore horizontal. These cylinders were tapered at the top, and the heads were 1.6" diameter.  I have decided that due to the mass of the crank-case, the cylinders and heads had to appear larger. This didn't change anything internally---it's just that with the taper removed, the cylinders and heads "grow" to 1.9" diameter. I think this gives a much better overall "balance" to the engine.
