You gentlemen are too kind.


I'll now crawl back under my rock and start on a portable engine just as soon as I can get to measure the prototype (about 150 miles from here).

I don't want to nit pick but didn't most stationary engines rotate in the opposite direction?  How easy is it to reverse the timing?

Good point.  I suppose changing the position of the eccentric would do the trick. I may try that when I am done changing out bolts and such for a better appearance.
