Upshur opposed twin .
« on: August 08, 2013, 02:35:23 PM »
Hi
I've decided to have a go at this engine.
It'll take me ages because of having to buy the material as and when I can afford it.
however, and for no other reason than I had a lump of alli I started on this bit.


All I need now is Star Treks replicator so I can get the other one  :D

I really don't know how people make things like 9 cylinder rotarys and so on, 9 conrods, 9 pistons, 9 cylinder heads and, well you get the idea.

So, I shall persevere, one bit at a time and see where I get.

cheers
Roy.
I used to be confused, now I just don't know.

And then there were two   :)


No, its not photoshopped.

they need a bit of cosmetic surgery but I've got two of em, funny really, the plan says " connecting rod one required".

I don't suppose it's the last error I'll find, it all adds to the fun.  :doh:

cheers
Roy

Hi me again.
here's the next instalment.
I've never carved a crankshaft from the solid before.



here it is with the conrods fitted.




slowly but surely....................well, nearly surely anyway.  :scratch:

cheers for now.
Roy.
