Swing back to the engine this morning. Kinda glad I was able to permanently shoehorn the  water pump and the starter junk in place, and still be able to set the engine in and out between the frame mounting brackets.

Clay, the Fuman Mercer distributor is 1/2" tall by 1/4" thick by ~11/16" long (not counting the mounting tab. Hope this info isn't too late for you. I'll send some photos of the assembled unit shortly.

Are the spindles on your axle plastic tubing and if so are the axles from the kit? Great job by the way.

Here's pictures of the distributor and with it attached to the timing case. Some are a bit fuzzy. Hope they help.

Thanks, Dave. I have already scratched up a distributor of sorts My imagineered fan pulley mount is a little different though. wanting to get some paint on the engine and parts before I continue.
Spindles are the kits. I drilled through, and then separated them from the axle ends.

Plugs wired and routed to the distributor and the priming valves installed.
The plugs and valves were made from stuff saved over from a 20+ year old model ship build.
Plugs from white metal railing risers and the primers made from brass rope pins.
(mind blanked  - belaying pins ?)

This is all looking great Clay, particularly the engine.

What diameter wire did you use for the valve springs and where did you get it?

Quality work on the engine, Clay. Really looks the business, comparared to the blob of plastic it was.

Cheers,
Chris

You got the engine wiring and detail right!  I did a 1/25 Stutz and included brass and copper foil (candy wrappings) to make it good.  Then the body paint went South and I lost interest.  Glad you're doing well with yours!

Up on wheels (not completely painted yet) and detailing the dash/firewall.



A small tank of some sort is being imagineered as a steering box. It'll be almost completely hidden behind the cowl, but it gives me something else to add. Starting to look pretty good with the cowl in place :o)
