    I bought a set of plans from Jerry Howell for this motor. I think the size was a 32cc. I have about 85 hours in it so far and probably another 100 more to go. He has some single cylinder engines. I have never attempted anything like this before but I must say that I'm having a bunch of fun running the machines. About 20 years ago, I went from a machinist to an engineer position so I really miss getting my hands dirty machining stuff.

    Jerry's web site is www.jerry-howell.com

    Jeff,

    i'm wondering the same thing as jkilroy, are you building it from scratch, or a kit and plans? i would some day like to build something similar to an old single-cylinder engine and it would look something like yours (only half the cylinders).

    started a topic V-Twin motor progress

    V-Twin motor progress

    I had a few days off of work so I did some more work in the V-Twin. Finished all the rocker arm parts and even made the stainless nuts. Started to work on the valve gear case and the tappets & bushings. I had some surgery on my right hand so I’ll be out of commission for the next few weeks so I can only plan on what I will work on next. Hope you all have a Happy new year.

    Jeff


    Fixture to make sure the gear mesh is correct.

    sub-assembly just to check fit. The green things are old ear plugs – needed something to keep tension on the push rods.
