Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2

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.

4 Cylinder Briggs Unveiled!!!!
The FrankenBriggs 4 is shown for the first time in this vid. It isn't complete yet, but is well underway. I hope to complete it before winter closes in, since it is too heavy for 2 people to manuever up the stairs from my basement workshop. It may look like 4 engines simply joined together, but there is more going on here than that, notice the spark is from a distributor.
