Bill,

I have watched most of your work on this forum and this is in the stratosphere. To take a block of aluminum and tool a engine that is this
small is stunning.

I worked in a plastic factory as a mold setter for almost 25 yrs. before our work was outsourced. I worked with many tool makers on new
builds, but never dreamed that something this small could be made.

Ron, this is something I have all ways dreamed of doing,I am having a great time figuring all this stuff out, I guess it really is a dream come true to hold an all aluminum engine in the palm of my hand finally! thank you

here is the water pump starting to take shape, it is 5 separate pieces, the housing, the pump, the lower neck, and the thermostat housing is 2 pieces. and also got the oil pump done and ready for a filter.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Imagethanks for looking!



Beautiful work ... But I don't think this is CNC'd considering in the above picture there is the top of a CNC table. Not calling you a liar...
