George Britnell 4cylinder overhead value
« on: August 08, 2020, 01:07:05 AM »
I started this engine in October 2018. It's been really fun building this engine. I made several mistakes along the way and learned a lot in the process. All I need to do now is tweak out the ignition and the fuel system and build a radiator. Opps maybe I should build radiator first then do the tweaking.


I just had to see if was going run before starting on the radiator.  :pinkelephant: :cartwheel:

BTW I used o-rings on the pistons.

Thank to George Britnell for sharing

Gary,
It runs and that's a good thing after all the effort you've put into getting it to that point, good job.

That's awesome Gary.  Congratulations.  I know what is involved with building this engine and can appreciate what it took to get this far.  Very well done.  I can't wait to see it when it is dialed in.

It is the journey that matters, not the destination

Very nice.  Maybe some day I'll get brave enough to attempt a 4 cylinder.   :cheers:

The destination motivates us toward excellence, the journey entertains us, and along the way we meet so many interesting people.
