Beautiful work! Love the wood stand. How noisey is it, when running? I'd love to see it run. I'm glad that I have too many shop jobs lined up that I am completely not interested in making one myself........well it would be a fun project.

Nice work, Andrew. You've got a nice runner there.

Brian Rupnow certainly comes up with some neat engine designs. It's just too bad that he isn't a member here.

WAY TOO COOL!
It's alive. It's alive.

Not being a small engine person, how does the carburetor work?
How many horse power?

As far as HP is concerned, no idea, don't care. Fuel is unleaded.

Cheers

I have tried to reach out. You are encouraged to do so if you know him.
