Plumbing T vertical,  0.75 bore X 0.625 stroke      5/13/2009

I completed Dale Detrich's Brass "T" and ran it for the first time on April 27, 2009.  The engine uses a common plumbing "T" for the block, hence the name.  It is a single cylinder vertical OHV engine.  Bore is 0.750 and stroke is 0.625"  The engine runs well and has a fairly high top end.  Dale has clocked his at around 7000 rpm.  Dale was most helpful during the build of my first I.C. engine with answers to my questions and good pictures detailing the build.
