Hey Mark,

What's up with the spokes on the flywheel being curved? Are we going to see it at Coolsprings running in a couple weeks?

Exclamation Re: Otto 8hp

Might be an optical delusion, if the red engine were running, or if the lens was a 'fish eye' lens. If those spokes were curved as pictured, they sure would be unique!

Pretty sure that the spokes are straight, just wanted to have a little fun with a friend LOL I believe that is the same engine Kevin Kusel posted pics of a few months ago when he pulled it out of the barn.

Mark,

Can you disclose what type and or brand of stitching plugs that Justin is going to use. Lock N stitch, Goodson, etc. Are they cast iron or steel plugs? I am considering stitching an engine that I don't want to paint. I thought that cast plugs would rust/age closer to the cast block vs. steel. Thanks

Rusts exert tremendous pressure in a closed environmant like a water jacket. Somewheres in the area of 30 to 60 thousand PSI. From the amount there, it seems you are lucky to get the jacket off. Good luck with the stitching - if done right, the joint will be stronger than the surrounding metal!
