I bought this engine years ago it was missing the disk and the connecting rod
need to make a base and burner and age the rod runs not bad just have to time it a little more

would it have had the water tank at the end for cooling

thanks to woody sins for the measurements

I added this tank a couple of weeks ago
it ran with out it but should run at a lower heat on hot days

this one never had a tank as there are no holes for the screws and no grove in the flywheel for a fan

when I have the time I will be adding something to run off it

Seeing your original engine, it just goes to show what a good job MyfordBoy did of copying the design.

I've got a turntable for mine, but haven't hooked it up yet.

If you give me your email address, I'll send you a picture of my engine hooked up to the turntable. I can't attach a picture directly here.
