The first picture is of the completed heads, Still waiting for the valve springs to be fitted
The second picture is of the rocker arms, almost finished
Third Picture is the internals of the engine
Forth picture is of all the parts I have made to date
A more comprehensive set of pictures can be found at
The first part of the engine I made was the Crankcase, as this is the largest piece of the engine I wanted to be sure it would fit in my lathe. I have a 3 3/8 centre height lathe which is about 50 years old.
The crank case was followed by the Crankshaft. I wanted the make the most difficult components first.
The end plates were the next parts to be manufactured
Following the Endplates I made the 4 cylinders.
Next to be made was the cambox
I made the cylinder heads in one piece, I thought this would be a bit easier for me than making two halves and soldering them together.
You can see a complete record of all the parts made to date and how I made them by following the following link to the webshots site.
Here are a few more photo's for my work in progress page.
There photo's show the various stages for making the Camshaft
Picture one shows the cam blanks being made from a lenght of Silver Steel
Picture two shows the cam blanks ready for machining
Picture three shows a cam being made
Picture four shows the finnished cams, I made them as pairs for ease
Picture five shows the cams being set on the shaft
Picture six shows the cams soldered on the shaft
Picture seven shows the camshaft fitted and the lift being checked.
The First picture is of the engine built so
far, the heads are now almost complete and end covers finished.
As usual a more complete set of pictures is available on the Webshots web site, the address is already on the page.
The second picture is the flywheel finished ready
to be cleaned up and bored for the taper lock.
As usual a more complete set is on the webshots site
