Thanks TimmyB and Andy, hope to get started on the pistons in a couple of days and that will complete the upper assembly.

Hello everyone,

Not getting as much shop time as I would like so my progress on this build has slowed a bit. I have finished the pistons and attaching a couple of photos and another short video. This coming week I can get started on the Valve Chambers.

I'm really enjoying watching this build.

I wouldn't be able to resist painting those cylinders black with yellow stripes though, but then you'd have to name the engine "plan bee" or something.

Working on a bit more brass this morning to add. I have almost completely decided to paint the aluminum parts and just polish up all the brass parts. ( please note the "almost" )

Have a great day
Thomas

Hey again, made a short video of the completed parts assembled to confirm the fit and make any adjustments. So far everything fits OK, just a bit tight.

Thank you MrMamod, after I get some run time on it, I will take it all apart and wash off the white grease and apply a good coat of light machine oil. It should run a lot easier then.

G' day to all,

Really got a lot of work done in the last day and a half. Things seem to come together for a change. I completed the Valve Chambers and the Valves and Rollers and uploaded videos to my Youtube channel. I am attaching a video of the engine completely assembled and doing some test runs. Still have a bit of tweaking with the timing but very happy with the way it runs at slow speeds even though it is not close to be broken in. The "Roller Valves" seem to be working as designed.

Have a great day,
Thomas
