So this is it kiddies. The engine is completely finished, runs the way I like, and looks pretty too. I had a few problems with valves not sealing, but new valve cages were made and the problem was fixed. This has been an interesting engine to build, and it is similar in many respects to the flathead engine I built ten years ago. Complete plan sets are waiting to be sent out to anyone wishing to build this engine.($25 Canadian funds), contact me. Thanks to all who have followed and commented on the forums as this engine came together.---Brian Rupnow

This is the T head engine I designed and built a few months ago. I finished the engine, tuned it to run and took a video. Then it went up on the shelf. Yesterday I had some free time, so I got it off the shelf, down to my work area, and made up a spring return bracket and a throttle extension handle with a return spring. I started it up, adjusted the idle, and then let the engine run until it ran out of fuel. I had my office door open while this was happening so I didn't gas myself. Actually, I went into my machine shop and worked on something else until I heard the engine quit.

Brian,

Thanks for another look at this one. The spring and lever and the result of their addition makes the engine run the way I like them also.

The sound reminds me of the old generator sets: A constant background sound while going about other chores....
