Steve Sedgall's Farmboy (not quite finished yet)
« on: April 21, 2011, 08:26:22 PM »
Here's an e-mail and photos I received from Steve on April 20, 2011

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi,
     I thought I would share with 2 pictures of my Farm Boy which I have just finished. It has run for about 10 minutes and now it s going to stripped and painted. I am very pleased with the results and it was a joy to work with such detailed and accurate drawings. I am looking forward to deciding on  my next Jerry Howell project.
 
Kind Regards

Here's another e-mail from Steve:

Hi Allen,
                Here is a link to a video of the first time my engine ran.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YV9yEF8nq2g
 I have tried to register to the forum so I could answer a question but it seems registration has been disabled. Can you let me know when this has been enabled so I can post more pictures of the finished engine. I am making a trolley for it to sit on and also trying to decide what colour to paint it.
 
Kind Regards
 
Steve....

And my reply:


Hello Steve,

Thanks for the link!

Yes - I disabled self-registration because I was getting TONS of spam users and messages.  Just send me what you want for a user name and password and I can set you up.

Thx...

Allen

I didn't use the spark saver and I ran the engine on Coleman Fuel. I put flanges of the bearing on the inside but made them from Oilite.
Good luck with your build.
