Scale Model Running Challenger Flathead V8 By Ron Colonna
Bore: 1 in.
Stroke: 1 in.
Displacement: 100 cc
Max RPM: 6,000
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.
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.

The expansion chambers are "home made" by hydroforming. The original Exhaust is milled away and the engine
block is filled whit plastic.
This engine will get electronic fuel injection and will not be used in a

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.

The JET Bicycle - The most dangerous unsafe bike EVER
An old womans bike built for shopping turned into a bomb inspired safety
hazzard. This is the final part in my series on the wonderfull pulse jet
and what an end.The jet will push the bike a little faster but its staying on thats the
challenage as some of the more keen eye'd people will have noticed the side
shaking , yes we could have cured it with better frame better wheels etc
but i like its a shit bike n still is.
Other videos in the series are
Part 1- Making the jet
Part 2- First test
Part 3- Strapped up in van and nearly setting fire to everything

I knew a little about the famous Offenhausers, hearing about their
conquests at the Indianapolis Speedway while growing up. I didn't get
interested in building a copy of one until approached by Bob Washburn after
doing my Cirrus article for SIC magazine. At the time Bob was looking for
someone to develop the model, do the basic drawings, write machining
instructions, and build two copies of the finished engine, in a one year
time frame. He sent me all the data he had aquired at the time. I looked it
all over, but had to send it all back. I was busy on other projects and it
seemed a daunting task that I was sure I couldn't accomplish. I didn't
forget the engine though, and some years later, a gift of Gordon White's
book on the Offenhausers from my eldest son, put me in the frame of mind to
give Bob's proposal a try, but on easier terms. It took me two years to do
it all and I only built a single copy of the engine. I put my drawings and
machining instructions in book form and published it myself. It has been a
successful venture, but I was right about it being a daunting task. I'll
most likely never try doing anything like that again. The engine has been,
and is being built in many parts of the world. My copy has been running for
eight years now and is a fine performer with the throaty roar of it's full
