Hi Achim. I'm glad that the interference problem was relatively easy to rectify. I'm sure we've all had that experience- "I hear something strange, but where the ##$@# could it be coming from?".

Great to see everything working so well in the video. For me at least, that's always a very satisfying milestone to reach, and a nice interim reward for all the work up to that point. :cheers:
Regards,
Ron

Nice investigative work, glad it wasn't too hard of a fix.

Per, Ron and Chris thanks for watching.


Up to this point a drip pan, strongly recommended by Doug and also Rustkolector (Jeff) who has build this engine too, was missing.
And as Ron mentioned, I wanted to get the feeling, up to this special point it is done.
The only worst thing here, a complete disassemble is necessary.
There have been two options.
A fabricated pan made from a brass sheet or a job for the 3D printer.
So I have had a look to the CAD model first.
The out coming result, a simple two part design will combine my wishes and the way a 3D printer can make it easily.
I have had a new roll of PETG filament under the bench, purchased at a new supplier, so a good opportunity to test it and to find a good adjustment for it and my printer.
At test part was made first.
During the disassembling I have tries to get some records for the later reassembly.
I will fix the pan with 4 small M1,6 studs, glued into the pan and some nuts.
The pictures below does show a sample fixation with bolts sticking loose into it.
I had to order a threaded rod first  to make these studs.
Kind Regards
Achim

Now it was time to think about a final assembly up to this point.
Still missing some coating /color.
For me a job that does need some time and patient.
Still a fan of powder coating, because it gives always this kind of irregular surface I do like very much, which remind me a bit as the surface of a casting.
I will show some, not further commented,  pictures here of the way I have done it. 
The masking is the most time consuming job here.
Some place has got some cold black burnish only.
Kind Regards
Achim

For the final assembly I had to spend some many at my favorite model fastener supplier again.
Some very unusual long, black bolts has been found in China and could be easily modified into the required long studs.
My cutting equipment also shown below.
Today I have still no source for the very small model washers, so a black burnish has to be needed for each washer.
Kind Regards
Achim

Here some detail pictures of the fasteners at the engine.
I am very happy with it, how it does looks like now.
Again the link to the engine video how it looks like today.
It is the same video, which I have linked some weeks earlier, when I have started my catch up marathon of this build report.
Also missing here and next to show, the coolant gear pump.
It will follow soon.
Kind Regards
Achim

Very nice paint job, Achim!   :popcorn:

I'm with you, I like the look of the powder coat.  And I also enjoy the powder coating process  MUCH more than standard paint.  Somehow I find it more satisfying and less distressing.  Yours came out beautifully!
