Mike's Completed Farm Boy #876
« on: April 16, 2023, 10:15:15 PM »
Here's my finished Farm Boy Engine, #876!  I'll post a series of pix of various views of the engine followed by a few videos of it running.  I'll not comment on each pix as all the necessary comments can be found in build log for this engine.  Just a few notes.  I added a name plate just to make sure whoever throws everything away after I'm gone, knows what it is!!  Also I added a PM Research globe valve in the fuel line in order to be able to complete seal the fuel source from the carburetor.

Here's a video of the engine running with video recorded at normal speed.

And lastly here a video in slow motion.  I wanted to see how many revs between hits this engine could manage.  During this run, I can count somewhere between 25 and 30 revolutions between hits.  I think that's pretty good, although Andrew Whale has an engine on YouTube that manages about 35 revs between hits, but I was never able to quite get to that mark.  But I'm satisfied with what I was able to manage!

And that really is now it for this engine!!

Enjoy!

Mike

Wow! That base came out beautiful!

I'm sorry the paint gave you fits, but I think the color turned out very well. And I can't see any issues from my side :)

Looking forward to the videos  :ThumbsUp:  ;D

Kim, the videos are up now. 

This is the first engine I've built where I really tried to step up my game with respect to the final appearance.  Previously I just wanted to a working engine!   I think it came out pretty well, but I definitely need to step up my game with respect to paint and painting.

Thanks for taking a look!

Great build and it runs like a treat.  I've been going back and re-reading your build thread.  Great stuff!

I think you hit your goals of making a fine looking engine.
