      Here's another update on the Lincoln engine progress. Both heads are done and I'm in the middle of creating the valley workings with the valves and springs. Half of the valves are made but are not painted yet. I've included two pics of the heads.

    I really appreciate those pics you sent, Guido. I didn't see a manufacturer's stamp anywhere on the finned head so I have no idea who made them. They look really cool and are not difficult to make. I forgot to mention that I used 2-56 39 Lincoln 10 nuts inside the ports for the spark plugs. The spark plugs will be made of 2-56 39 Lincoln 10 tapped rod and are more difficult to make than the 1/8 scale plugs. The 1/6 size plugs stick out further from the lathe and have a greater tendency to go out of round and break. I think speed of the lathe is the crucial variable. It's got to be slow. BTW, thanks again for the great words of encouragement. Tonight, I make the valley.

    Insane---Insane---INSANE??? You got that right. It's already taking it's toll on my mental state. I think I'm developing Lincolnitis.
