1/5 IHC Vertical Screen Cooled Finished & Running
« on: January 07, 2012, 01:33:29 PM »
Well I have spent a bit of time fiddling about with this one since the new year and have progressed from the odd pop through a couple of bangs to whats almost running. Most of the issues were with the ignitor but after a few rewound springs, a few more guesses of the parts that I could not read on the drawing playing with the dwell time and trip lever not to mention a sore finger from continually flicking it over its about right.

I'm not running it with the water pump at the moment so have kept down to a couple of 5min runs and will now pack it up ready to return to the guy I made it for, hopefully once he has it painted up and on a cart I'll get some photos and post them here.

Sorry the video is the wrong format, it is a Vertical engine honest

Very nice, Jason.  That's one of my favorite engines.
