    Single Cylinder 4-stroke

    This little engine is on hold, waiting for me to get the enthusiasm to finish it. However, lots are asking about it and so I thought I would share a video of me taking it apart



    Hopefully I'm not alone in sometimes just getting stuck, at some point I will get inspired to finish it.

    Did you ever get that finished...it's really a cool design. What would you use it for?

    Hi, not finished, I need to get my head around how I finish the valves. In terms of use, when I designed it I was thinking of an old fashioned tether car. The cooling fins are rather large for this size of engine, but the long stroke is quite fun I think. Thanks, Nigel

    Not everything has to have a use...
    That said, the skills and experience alone are pretty precious.
    I could think of half a dozen different uses, some that would get me into lots of trouble.

    The old tether cars are sweet, the really old ones are worth a fortune.
