Well done Butch, looks like you are making great progress. How are you going with the arctic weather predicted for you parts of the world?

I have a couple of questions: how is fuel delivered to the fuel reservoir? I am assuming that you would just fill the reservoir manually with about a quarter pint of gasoline, drop on the missing cover and start her up, this would heat the bulb allowing you to switch over to Diesel.

My second question is why there is a need to cool the fuel injector, does it get hot enough to vaporize the diesel? I have seen a lot of fuel injectors on air cooled diesels and never had a problem with fuel evaporating.

Love that Fuel pump, it has more in common with an oil pump than a fuel pump. Can`t believe the good condition of the plunger after more than a century, They certainly new how to make things that last back then. 500 PSI is quite low but I guess that with a large volume, slow speed engine like this, the fuel is vaporized by the heat rather than the injector spray pressure and pattern.

Keep warm,
Bob.

Hi Butch, glad you are OK and didn`t get the worst of the cold weather. The worst I have ever experienced was minus 30 C, while skiing in France. At that temperature your eyeballs freeze over and you can`t see where you are going, you have to keep blinking to clear the frost, even with goggles on!

Stay safe,
Bob

An amazing replica machining job from an antique parts manual picture.  Wow!

Once again, nice work, I envy you the chance to go against the more usual time = money and ugly, and function over form.

Cheers

Nice work Butch, I spent years working a lathe and know how time consuming this sort of work is, especially if you are having to make your own tooling.

Do you have the original fuel line or are you going to have to make that as well? Will it have swagged/flared ends or  soldered/brazed brass ferrules?

Your productivity is humbling and inspiring, 38AC.  Marvelous job, I'm sure oil operation is not far away now. How hard is it to start?

The quality and clarity of your instructional guides here have been invaluable to me, Butch. I think you are an outstanding technical teacher, and I'd guess that your son got a huge leg up in the world thanks to you.

I'd love to see an air start and switchover to oil on this beauty when weather permits.  This machine is an amazing piece of IC engine history, and the flameless gas/spark start option that it has makes it unique.
