Silver Eagle 

My plans were purchased at the Iron Fever expo 2003 from Bob Shores.  This was my first and unfortunately last opportunity to meet Mr. shores.  This Motor is a 4 cycle 7/8 bore 7/8 stroke water cooled horizontal Hit-miss engine.  I finished this engine in Apr of 2004. With Bob's great help on the phone during the build, I am happy to say that this motor started almost with the first pull.  This is my second IC engine I have built. I am working on Bob's Silver angle and hope the availability of his other motors will continue so I can build more. "Bob we love you man!"
