I have seen this engine run at a Jacktown show and the build quality is awesome !!!!

The complete build can be found on You Tube under many parts.

" Homemade 4 Cylinder Briggs Project "

 

Before building this 4 cylinder engine, they built a 2 cylinder engine which is equally impressive.

 

I hope you enjoy seeing this!

That thing is so... cool! They did an awesome job on the build! I'd love to have something like that powering a GT :D

 

Back when they built it I watched all of the videos, it was long but well worth it!

I've watched the build on youtube. Pretty awesome to say the least. I was very impressed by the builder's resourcefulness. As I recall he used a large hole saw to make the crankshaft tunnel.

Wow! Get all that connected and timed right and even a dizzy for it. Getting all the dimensions right with cutting of the cases (I assume they were cut) and melding again?  Maybe it is a casting?  I didn't watch all the video's.   And pretty young fellas to have that talent too it seems.

I didn't quite figure out the crankcase, either. On one side it looks like one case. On the other, carb side, it looks like separate cases.

Watch all the videos and you can get a good idea of how they do things. They are currently working on a three cylinder radial B&S engine.
