Simple 4 cycle 2 cylinder V based on the Simple Vertical, 1.00 bore X 1.00 Stroke, Build 2
Last year I built the first in this series of engines. The first one (click here to see it) was designed for construction on a lathe and drill press only. I am also building a refined design that needs a lathe and mil for construction. I think I removed all extra material and am covering the cylinder with fins for more cooling. I will be simultaneously building this 2 cylinder V version and the new Simple Vertical.
Split big end bearings. The brass is soldered together and turned on the solder center line
Connecting rods for the V
This engine is getting put aside for now. The final 1 inch bore engine will be a single cylinder flat head. When that engine is complete I plan on reducing the bore to 0.800 inch and taking on a group of 2 cylinder engines.
