      • Very nice. Mine does not look that fine.I like the brass. I missed the part about the stand on the back of the engine holder as seem in picture 4.Where can I find the drawing for that part?

        • Hi Ed,
          Here is my drawing. Check to make sure my Dims. will match with your frame. I used 3/8" 01 tool steel
          You do not really need this part. I added it to give the engine a bigger foot print, for when adjusting gear mesh.

            There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness"...

              • is very good looking!!!!

                puts the poor original to shame

                The extra footprint is a reasonable idea.

                in the drawings, I noted that the mounting holes / slot should be checked on assembly, since typically all tolerances add up against you

                Which is one of the reasons fender washers were created
