Hercules

I send the photos of Little Hercules by Bob Shores.
It takes 1 year to make it and to adjust it.
I made the distributor and it gave me many troubles.
And I made pistons too tight, so my engine could run without piston rings but stopped in a several minutes of running because of thermal expansion of the aluminium(2024) piston.
I made new distributor and pistons again.
Now it run very well.
In this site, I show the video of my engine running http://www1.odn.ne.jp/~aac12680/   (look at the English and Japanese versions, David)
