This is the odds and ends hit and miss engine as designed by Philip Duclos. This is the first internal combustion engine I have attempted. The engine was completed  early in 2005. The ignition by a set of points operated from the cam shown in the original design. The engine runs very well, although it was a bit problematic at first. I had trouble keeping the engine running once it had fired. The solution was the extension tube on the air intake. This give a little more suction on the fuel.
