Hatter.
Have a really long study of this site. http://www.modelenginenews.org/ There's some amazing engines out there. Unfortunately the fellow (Ron) who operated the site passed away last year, so it is now stuck in time.
On the left side you will see "Engines" in the menu. Some real eye candy there. Thumbs Up

Thanks for the link, I indeed found myself getting very happily lost, very quickly. I'll have to set aside some good relaxing time to go through that site! Thumbs Up

That must use a roots blower to generate pressure.

It has only been fired up once by me (just to see if I could!).

All plugs have to be connected - I wired them in parallel to an old 1.5v lead acid accumulator - it took me a while to get it firing on all cylinders but that was due to me being cautious.

Radial model engines require care- it is easy to flood the bottom cylinders which could lead to nasty consequences.

Eventually I had it firing on all cylinders but left it rich as it needed running in. I also used synthetic oil as I didn't want to gum it up and spend hours cleaning it or dismantling. Just a flush and drain followed by a light oil.

This engine tightened as it warmed up. Anyone intending to run it seriously would have to take care running it in.
