Doug, that is pretty cool! This morning when I was cutting the rear cover I thought about curing into the cylinder like that, I decided that could wait for the mill though.

I was going to leave the head off, maybe I could do something similar to that.

They had invented the Internal Combustion Engine back then?
EDIT: Now I understand... the reason you got the "excellent" was; this was a design prototype.

.

I can't take the credit for the design prototype. My buddy Nick Otto had done that already. I think it was the fact that the technology was so new I didn't have to dazzle them with brilliance!

I have not had much time to work on this, but I did cut the head; like the rear cover I will finish off the edges with my rotary tool.

Sometime this week I will be bringing the block to school so I can use the mill in the metal shop to make the cuts I need.

Why are you making a cut away engine?

 

Sorry, I missed your post. I have only seen them in pictures before, then I saw a few in person and since then I just really wanted to make one. :D

I'm pretty sure the 25 year prison term for that Wisconsin would be in some member's barn with the livestock lol. This is a neat project. I deliver to the Cummins Tech. Center in Columbus, IN. They always have cutaways of their latest engines in the hallway I walk. No matter what engine it is, I always stop to look at it. I look forward to the finished product. You should mount something to turn it so everything can be working.

I like that idea! I was going to put a handle on the output shaft of the crank, but maybe I could put a small motor on it? I don't know how I would do that though.

With o compression, a small DC motor and belt would work. The hand crank would be a good idea on the square piece where the pull start went. Keep people from turning it backwards too.

How small do you think I could go? I have tons of those little hobby motors, but even the biggest one would be no where near strong enough.

If you pulley it down to turn slow, it won't take much.

Oh, sorry! I forgot. LOL! One of the students broke the mill in the metal shop at school. I don't know who did it, what they where doing, or what broke, but it does not much matter.
