Randy,

I'm glad you posted your handywork. It's a great engine and you did a spectacular job of solving a parts shortage problem.

I hope others will be encouraged to do the same with some of their stalled engine projects.

I know that you said originally when you were asking for opinions on whether or not to make this engine sideshaft or try to locate hard to find original parts, you decided that you were going to go with the sideshaft idea while keeping the basic engine parts in their original condition so that it could be put back to original.

I doubt that you ever will put it back but keeping the option open is nice for some time far in the future if someone ever wants to put it back they can.

Anyway you are an artist.

Dick

Thanks to all of you and thanks to Dick for encuraging me to build this engine. We sent emails back and forth while I was building this engine and became good freinds. I still have to take the engine back apart and paint every thing and shape up some of the parts I made, but I think it will be a good engine. Runs good and very smooth. Take a look at the name plate I made for it. Thanks Randy

Randy:

I applaud your effort and ingenuity in keeping most of a nice engine in one piece.

I also like the name plate. I (and others, I'm sure) would like to know how you made it.

Also, how come the high serial number. I woulda thought you'd give it number 0000001 or something.

Take care - Elden

The serial number is the orignal number of the engine. The name plate was made using Jeff Conners ideal he sent in to GEM April 2003 issue. It uses a paper called PnP Blue and etching solution. Print your art work on to the paper and iron it onto the brass plate, peel the paper off and it leaves the print on the brass. After that dip the plate into etching solution for adout 20-30 mins. clean and trim the plate to size. It worked very well for me. I think if you go to the GEM web page you can find it in the archives.

Sounds like the printed circuit fabrication method that bypasses the necessity to buy board material that has been pre-coated with photo resist.

Thanks - Elden

Randy had the "Tucker" at Albemarle show today. Lots of ata-boys!! I can tell you the design and workmanship is as good as it gets. And the proof was in the running, like a fine Swiss watch.

Watch for it at Denton, I think you'll enjoy it as much as I did today.

Randy, VERY nice job. Why don't you bring it to the Carolina Fly-Wheelers show outside of Boone, NC July 29-30, 2005? Would be glad to have you!
