how about a 100cc 7 cylinder radial?
i have my eye on this one...........
new to the hobby but have a complete machine shop and years experience in engines.
I want to build one but not very small.
something like 1/4 or 1/3.Number of cylinders from 2 to 8 and 4 stroke.Do you have something in mind?plans and photos of something?Or any other information?
Ageless engines sells plans for a 1/5 scale radial. 9 or 18 cylinder about a foot in diameter. Yery good design and drawings

Coles power models has castings and plans for many engines including the Challenger V8. I have seen a few of them run and they are nice.

I like in-line sixes. Inherent balance and all that stuff. Jaguar 6, BMW 6, Hudson flat head 6 and ???
The reason I included the Hudson is because of Hudson's record of winning on the early NASCAR circuit.
I'd even like to build a small car with a 60-80 cubic inch (1-1.4 liter) transverse in-line 6. Such a car would not require a heavy structure to carry an aluminum billet engine (iron sleeves) engine.
Use CNG or Propane or ??????? for fuel. Non-polluting, or nearly so, use Obama's Stash to fund the development of the thing.
I've got the time, Obama's got the money. All I need is an available shop with the right equipment. That's why it will never happen.LOL
I live 25 miles from HD HQ. VERY POPULAR FOR SCALE BUILDERS. For me, no offense intended, I'd rather do something a bit more off-the-wall. LOL
Post #7 above was a bit tongue in cheek.
