Listeroid Engines / Re: 12-2 Air over Start

First time I have actually seen a D.I. twin. India made a very compact elbow fitting for that. I have one in the shop,,somewhere,,,,

Butch, perhaps it's been discussed on here before, but can you explain why they are made in IDI and DI models?
Is there an advantage to either design?

This one's special, several 'tool tricks' shown in the video as well.

OK, I skipped along thru the horror movie. I see now what this really is. It's a motivational video for all newbies that might be afraid of doing something terribly wrong to their engines. If THESE guys can take one apart, and have it running at the end of the movie, ANY one can do better than this, and expect better results.

There was no shim in the rod. I checked the ID with it torqued up to 55ft lbs, (inserts installed of course). I got variations around the bore but not too bad really.....considering from whence it came. Would I run a Rat motor at 7500 for extended periods under full load with numbers like these? Hell NO. But 500-800RPM and 6-7HP? I think there's some lee-way there for sure.

Mine's the same way Butch. But this is all new to me, so I'd be real appreciative for more details on this.
Here's an ignorant question.....what harm does it do to the engine with it set up as in Greg's picture?

Yes, nice looking setup. Maybe I'll get an in person tour of that engine room soon.

I think it was 38AC that suggested the generic spray electrical varnish to me.  A very helpful tip, saved me a bunch of time and money. 

Nice looking crankcase, bet you burned some grinding stones on that!

Yes, you mentioned it Bruce, and I think I read it in 38's build thread. Spraying was much easier and quicker than brushing.
Honestly, I spent about 15 minutes de-flashing the breather opening, and just a bit on the large opening. Most all of what you see in
the pic hasn't been touched with a grinder. And, yes, it did cut like butter with a Carbide burr, which is a little discerning, as it seems like real soft iron. I suppose there's not much nickle in it.

I ended up getting a spray can of "Glyptal like" insulating paint, Neversieze brand. Much easier than brushing it on.
Set it out in the sun 2 days to dry, it's hardened up nicely and looking good.

I think it would be worthy of a link or a new thread with the initial setup, modifications and any tips you have found with your experience over the years Bruce.

Bruce, are you located in the US? Just curious.
Your setup is very interesting, do you have a link to your build thread?
Thanks...

Be nice to live somewhere a car interior never gets about 130F. Here it can easily get closer to 130C!

Yes, I feel lucky

They say 250F for 2 hours.

Back seat of a car with the windows up !!

Probably around 130f max

We used the cheap spray generic  electrical varnish for my neighbor's 8/1 crankcase.  It is still in perfect condition.

Did you bake it after application?
