    I just recently finished building the 1/6 Galloway engine. Everything was made to print along with the needed corrections.
    Now I'm trying to get it running, without much luck. The usual elements are correct, compression, ignition, timing etc.
    My first question is:
    Has anyone built one of these engines?
    Are you using the Lunkenheimer style carb on it?
    Did you have to make any changes to the spark port from the igniter cavity into the cylinder?
    Is the carburetor extremely sensitive and did you modify the needle any to help it.
    I've built and run many engines but this one has me stumped.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Any chance it is not drawing fuel? Always wondered about the gas tank being under the engine. I started on the flywheels so I would be interest in the needed corrects

    Hi Bob,
    Yes this is a different engine. The 'Tiny' that we talked about is a very small scratch built hit and miss. The drawings are posted over on HMEM.
    If the show is anything like last year I only had one chance to make the rounds of the show as I was swamped with people all day.
