Woodson vertical w/reverse`
« on: August 01, 2018, 07:22:51 PM »
I'm drawing up and planning to make the Woodson Vertical slide valve engine from Popular Science, 1947.

Has anyone built this engine? I having trouble understanding how to set up the eccentrics. There has to be a better way.

This engine has what I believe to be a Stevenson Link for the reverse part. It use 2 eccentrics that are riveted together. Is there a better way?
