Thanks for all nice comments guys!  I have always been pretty handy and live my life by the motto that my grandfather taught me... "if you can pay someone to do it, you can do it... might just cost more and take longer."  The Webster is not perfect, but I learned a lot along the way and have used that knowledge on the Otto build.  I like shiny.

Thanks again!

Smart man your Grandfather. I suspect that he taught you much more than just that saying. You have shown a fine example of what one can do if they put their mind to it and use a good dose of patience. I believe that your Grandfather would be very proud of you for what you have accomplished with this engine. I am looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future.  :ddb: :ddb:

Cheers  :beer:

here are some pics of the completed parts.

Was your Webster crank pictured made from scratch, or did you use the weed eater crank?
