    Guess I'll be the first cab off the rank!
    This is the GMP Ardun that I have shown in a couple of mock-ups in my '36 3W posts.
    Basically it is as purchased, although I have changed the spark plug wires to a bigger diameter
    using a red braided fabric covered wire. I also changed the fuel lines from the carbs to the fuel block and did the oil lines at the rear of the block in a big diameter material using aluminium TIG wire.

    My other submission, is a Bruce Miller resin Official Engine Building Contest Thread August 16~17 2008 flathead. I purchased 3 of these way back when from Bruce Miller and it took a while to get them I might add!
    I built it adding spark plug wires and fuel lines from the carbs. Also drilled out the radiator hose inlets and outlets on the heads and water pumps. Painted red!
    But the most work went into the inside of this engine. I have completely hollowed out the inside of the gearbox and block. Going through the intake valley, I also cut out the area under the heads to allow for the hollowing process and went in through the top loader opening of the gearbox.
    Whoops almost forgot, I also drilled out the exhaust port holes and exhaust flange bolt holles.




    And just as an addition I will include a couple of shots of my flathead posed with the as purchased ( but with shaker scoop removed ) Icon 351 Cleveland and top loader.

    After Australia -following the sun- is here a European contribution. It is the engine of the Pocher F40 with the Autograph transkit. I show some "work in progress" and the result after 155 hours. Intercoolers and air filters have to be added when the engine is build into the car.

    This engine was used in the Fokker D VII German fighter plane in WWI. There were several versions of this engine and this is the 180 HP model. The crankcases, upper and lower were hand filed to shape very carefully, since filler was not an option. They are also cored out to reduce weight.

    Overall views with penny to show scale.


    Left side of engine installed.


    Right side of engine installed.


    A closeup detail shot of the right front.



    Here is a breakdown of the major component parts.

    HD V6

    I resin Official Engine Building Contest Thread August 16~17 2008 cast the bottom ends and used cylinders & OHC heads from 3 HD Sportsters. Due to the cylinder layout, the side draft carbs wouldn稚 work, so I devised a FI system. A magneto ignition was built and an inline trans was included.

    I知 working on a frame with shaft driven dual rear wheels for this engine.

    Ford Model A with Riley 4-Port Head

    This was 80-90% scratch built Official Engine Building Contest Thread August 16~17 2008 over the last couple of years. Due to lack of dimensioned drawings, I had to 兎yeball/guestimate the proportions. I plan to install this in a Model T Modified with a suicide front end.

    1/15th Scale 100% Scatchbuilt all brass. The crankcases are cored out to reduce weight, as with the cylinders. This is the 130H.P. 9B engine.

    Here is an overall front view of engine.


    A closeup showing detail and Warning plate to retime the guns if the engine was removed. If not retimed the propeller would be shot off.



    A breakdown of the major components.



    A closeup left rear view showing the drive gear for all the accessories with a penny for scale.



    A closeup right rear view showing the various accessories.


    A view of the engine as installed in Sopwith Camel without the cowl in place. This engine rotated with the propeller and killed more pilots trying to learn to fly it than were actually killed in combat flying it.

    I gotta say this is not going to be an easy contest to judge. All these entries are fantastic. To those who haven't put their pics in, you have until 1:00 PM 17 Aug to get your stuff in. I'll go ahead and consider that 1:00PM in ALL TIME ZONES so no one get's left out. Keep them cards and letters comin'.

    This entry is from donsrods1. It's a heavily kitbashed Jag everhead cam engine with a front mounted blower and remote induction. It's set up to receive a scratchbuilt Lenco tranny and will be shoehorned into a deuce ragtop with a front and rear Jag suspension.
