This engine was built early in my gasoline engine building career. I
received the castings and drawings as a Christmas gift from my wife. I had
it running about five months later. This is the engine that creates the
most interest at the shows. So much so that I've had to rebuild it twice
because of wear. As designed, it had some major shortcomings. The conrods
were bronze castings which promptly wore grooves in the crank. These were
replaced with rods machined from 2024 aluminum. Pistons were remade and the
engine fitted with rings made from the George Trimble method. Oil control
rings are a necessity as the engine smokes badly without them. An electric
start system was added and the engine now runs with the push of a button.

Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real
lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even
with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover
distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the
firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1.
Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer &
build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all &
just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.

Detroit Diesel 8V53T, (turbo just
removed for test run) this is literally the first starting attempt after
bringing it home, it had sat for years. Not so many 8V53 Detroits were
made, and very few turbocharged ones,
