Scale Running Model Harley Panhead Engine by Ron Colonna
Bore: 1 5/16 in.
Stroke: 1 1/2 in.
Two Cylinder Four Cycle
No Castings Used
This engine was scratch built to a scale of 2/5ths or 40% of full size. The
bottom end was taken from a drawing of a Knuckelhead engine that I puchased
on e-bay. The top end was patterned after photos taken from e-bay of Harley
parts for sale. I also bought a Harley repair manual that helped with the
oil system. The crankcase was split into three sections instead of the
usual two for ease of machining. The ignition is solid state and I use a GM
coil which fires the two plugs simultaneously. Timing is advanced and
retarded with the timer body. Two rotating magnets fire a Hall effect
device at the proper times as per full sized points. The engine is large
enough to produce that lovely V-twin sound.
1965 Corvair coupe
I really like what this owner has done to this Corvair! Notice the center
console housing all the gauges you wish you had as original equipment.
Upholstery and paint are perfect! The engine compartment is a perfect
example of the care and sense of beauty that this owner must have!
