    Nah....

    I don't see how this application would NOT run hot. Nice idea, but very poor cooling, or it seems so.

    That is COOL!! Some guys have way too much money and time on their hands.

    On a nother note...I have been looking at that engine for a Murphy Rebel I am building. But more than likly I'll stay with the tried and proven Lyc.
    If only it sounded like an ol' time radial I would have one in a minute.

    Wayne,

    You got me on that one!!
    I had to wait over here for nearly two months just waiting for the rain to stop long enough so I could spray epoxy primer on the ribs and other parts. At the rate I'm going I'll be lucky if I'm finished in another five years. Too many projects and moving every couple of years puts a big crimp in the building process.
    And now I'm getting ready to head back to MN for the next six months to get some work done on the log house I'm building. Need to get it livable before the wife retires in a year or two.

    Thanks for the encouragement!!!
    Keith
