NIce one Jeff. There's a guy at our club that like MDS - though I think he sometimes flies his to wind up a guy that doesn't!

Fascinating Jeff.

2 questions.

What’s the other end designed for, is it some sort of radial mount?

Will there be a tacho fitted behind the “firewall”?

Well sort of,I'm a welder/fabricator by trade but after 40 years in the industry you pickup other skills along the way like milling /turning ,but I'm no expert,just an enthusiastic amateur !

Yes that's a radial mount for larger engines and I will be looking into a fixed tacho.

Just finished off a OPS 40 SLA that a very generous member on this forum gave me along with a Meteor 40 for

restoration.

As it came out the box

After the success with the meteor I thought I would try something similar with a Merco but this time with reed induction !

going to 'cheat' and use the original crank but may have to make a piston (broke)wink

Rather than use a reed(or clack valve for the ancient modeler ) have gone for a rear drum,I will try a reed later when I have worked out how to make one !
