Default new toy ...click on video

Picked this little engine.....( Brunner compressor conversion) up at the Kent Conn. show. It ran....... but barely....Reshaped the cam for less valve open time, and shortened the pushrod, lapped the valves, made new gaskets, changed the exhaust and intake springs, etc, etc, etc. Now it runs in the correct direction , and hits and misses. incredibly miserly on fuel! Don't need a pickup to get this little gem to shows!!

I saw that there and was seriously considering it! That is a nice engine! At least I know who has it now...
