Wonderful Brian, it runs well !

It's not about the destination, not even so much about the journey,
but rather it's the interesting folks you meet along the way.

The first set of 60 .pdf drawings has been sent out to Graham Vickery. This is a fairly complex engine, and I expect Mr. Vickery to have a few questions which I will attempt to answer for him.  This engine is a bit more complex than what I usually send out, because it was first designed 5 or 6 years ago, then there were some design changes made about two years ago when I was trying out different cylinder heads, and then the final design changes this year when I made a much shorter base and added ball bearings to the crankshaft and camshaft. Of course the trick for me is to send out only drawings that refer to the current engine as it sets. Good luck Graham, may the force be with you!!!---Brian
