The vertical single cyl. overhead valve engine was built from a design by H. Upshur.  the engine was done in bright brass , to present a nice looking engine. the plans were complete and clear, and if followed will provide the builder with a fine running engine. the one modification that I made was to add a cooling fan. because I like to run the engines somewhat hard , and thought that the extra cooling would be a plus. the engine when it was finished , started on the first pull of the starting rope. I started the engine on glow fuel and glow plug, then tuned it up and then changed over to spark ignition.  the engine is now aprox. three years old , and still running fine. .....
