That is a very cool engine!   :ThumbsUp: :popcorn:

And quite compact - you crammed a lot of stuff in a little space there.

I love that there is so much to see on this engine.

Its always interesting to see your unusual interpretations of engine layout.  You clearly have the important parts really well sorted, while your unusual layouts demonstrate that other parts can be arranged in unusual configurations without detriment.

Will you use this engine to drive something?

Thanks MJM.  Been inquired of me about using some of the models by making vehicles for them. Not in the works but have a couple with onboard belt driven fans and generators. Happy to just let them idle along after completion and retired to display on the shelves.    Dave

Thanks Roger.  Spurs are tried and true for parallel shaft connections like crank to camshaft and the bevel gears work well taking the central drive crank rotations to outboard perimeter shafts via their 90 degree intersects. The MXL sprockets and belts an economic savings over multi gear extensions to driven shafts that are some distance apart. Those scale U-joints for occasional odd angle drives work well too. Part of the tool box of possibilities as I wildcat such one off unique designs. If you come in with an engine design sometime that has needs for extensions, direction changes or layout changes because it has just enough different aspects from those tried, proven and accepted configured engines.........you will know what to use to get those rotating items sync't together.   :ThumbsUp:    Dave
