I wasn't sure where to post this.
 
I can't believe the time, trouble and expertise that went into producing this!!

I mean look at the work on the water pump housing.  I can't believe he was able to work out the cams, spings, valves etc!  And then how do you deal with the spark plugs??

I dunno. . .But you have to give the man credit.  Very creative
 
He may have had to make his own spark plugs.
 
Stuff that in your 1/16 AMT model and see what happens.

Really, Putting it into a scale car would have to be the pinnacle.
 
If these were commercially available at a not too exorbitant cost, I would think about getting one.

It never ceases to amaze me how much talent some people have!

Wow - imagine 25 years to complete fabrication and then another 5 or 6 to get it running!

Incredible!

I can't believe it actually runs.  I mean, getting the air fuel misture right...all sorts of other issues. 
I posted this elsewhere, but another really talented guy.  He made it from another model and adapted it so it became a 68 Newport!

Here is a pic.  For some odd reason, when I tried putting this pic into my last post, it showed up at the top of the page!

I seen this one before - it's cool!
 
As for the water pump, it may not be liquid cooled.  (I did not view the videos.)  If he runs it just for static demonstrations it would not run long enough to need cooling beyond air.

It is a real water pump.  Here is an excerpt:
 
"Dies were developed for stamping out the front cover, oil pan and rockers. The pistons and water pump housing are cast aluminum, and the valve covers are going to be investment cast.

Since this engine is a runner, there is spark ignition, a pressurized oil system and a cooling system just like its big brother
Right now the engine has been completed to the point that it will run for brief periods of time. However, several things have yet to be finished including the water pump/radiator, valve covers and carburator to make this a full time running engine."

Very carefully!     Actually they are easy to make if you know how. An old friend, long gone, was an old school watch maker who was forever making tiny screws to replace those lost or broken. As part of the requirements to reach higher levels of his craft he made a pocket watch completely by hand from scratch materials. Needless to say it kept perfect time and was literally a work of art. He's probably the only guy I've ever met that could look at that engine and wonder why it took so long to build and why he built it so big!

Thanks Bob!  I had no idea there was this much interest in making scale working models.  Its incredible the talent out there of these people!  My hat's off to them all!
