Title: Howell V 4
Post by: LANTAIN1982 on January 03, 2021, 06:52:57 AM
After four years of enjoyment, challenges and frustration my Howell V 4 is complete and running.
This project has exceeded the demands of all my previous engines.  I found if one followed the well presented details of Jerry Howell it all came together.
Deviate at your own risk.   I admit to scouring the forum for posts and words of wisdom relating to the project and any other web gems.
In entering my 84 year I think that taking on a long term project may be a bit optimistic.  However one never knows.

A very nice looking engine, well done old timer!
As a 78 year old i am looking for a next project, are there drawings, castings etc available for the Howell 4 engine.?
Best wishes

Many thanks for your comments.
The Howell v 4 is made from bar stock, no castings required.  For details etc, go to:-    J.E. Howell Model Engine Plans.
 He published a wide range of engine plans.   They are very well detailed.

I will put up a video shortly once having mastered the technology.

Thank you.
