Default FM Eclipse #1

Hey "Hit & Miss Kid" here is the movie clip you wanted of my Eclipse #1 engine.
This is a bare bones engine...No base, no pump gears. Just the basic engine with buzz coil ignition! It is so light that I had to bolt it to a pallet to keep it from moving around on the floor while it runs...Fun little engine to watch though!

Give 'em plenty of time and encouragement because it is difficult to sleeve a headless engine! it's hard to set the cutters and make sure everytning is square when you can't see the bottom of your boring bar....Sure hope it works out for you...Maybe they are doing it on a horizontal boring machine? Huh?...Who is doing it, and have they EVER done one before?...I know, I ask too many questions!
