I saw the plans for this somewhere on-line and it intrigued me…being a motor head of sorts. I ordered the plans and wasn’t satisfied with them…even though they were OK. Some of the dimensions weren’t correct, the proportions were off and things didn’t always line up on the full size plans. So I redid them a bit. I bought a different rpm drive motor and moved it to the center gear that drove the crankshaft. I tapered the fins on the head. I added a spark plug with an LED that actually fires during the power stroke. I added a cam on the back to time the firing of the LED. Last, I used a 3-position switch onthe lamp to run the motor by itself or the motor or the lamp and then the lamp alone. Had a ball making it then. In fact I’ve made 4 of them and given them to buddy’s as presents. I’m now working on a wood V-twin like the Harley V Rod has.
