Doug W tells me there was a L shaped gizmo that attached to the FM 118 that allowed it to run hit-n-miss. Would anyone have a picture of this thing?

Im thinking of attempting to make one even if I don’t see one. I’m building a dip stick open hopper 118 right now. If it were hit n miss that would make it all the cooler I think.

Looks like a good start. We will need a video of it running when you complete the project.

Congratulations. It sounds great.

Makes me think I need to start something with the 118 sitting in my way in the shop floor.

Had a CA 50 Impco laying around. So I made a manifold to adapt it on. Works like a dream. Starts easy easy and cycles perfectly.

Pat, thank you but I don’t think I would sell it. That engine has been in the back yard for about 30 years. I always kept saying someday I need to make it run. Then a Doug W said something about making it hit n miss. Just wouldn’t be right to sell it now.
