Good job on the shed Marc! I'm a carpenter by trade, unlike motors where you sweat the .oo1", we fudge .125" all the time......................D

I love his quiet softspoken genius demeanor.

The 5 litre "Flying Millyard"  is fantastic.  Handmade cases, crankshaft, connecting rods and carbs.

Outstanding!

If those parts (14 and 13 in an R5 parts diagram) aren't in there under the cable attachment cap, what happens? Leaks? Worn parts?  I can imagine the small o-ring might get chewed up by the cable housing eventually.  I found them online, and am wondering if it's highly recommended to have all the parts in there, the way it was designed, der....   :umm: :whistle:  Maybe a washer and a spring will work?

Probably the last photo for a while. Carbs are on, everything hooked up except fuel and oil supply lines. Now to wait for weather to paint, decal, and clear the tanks and side cover. Then make smoke!

the reason i built mine was because i wanted it done the way I wanted. everything was put together with 2 or 3" coated deck screws, vapor barrier under the floor, etc. I drilled each hole prior to putting in the screws, and used 2 per beam vs the 1 nail they recommended.  same with the floor, and roof. except the trim pieces which have finishing nails.  also poured concrete footers then used the piers on top of that, will stay level .

last shed i had built i had to re-shim it to level about 5 yrs in and nails were always squeezing their way out.  still, i did the whole thing, effectively, and mostly single handed, in about 40-45 hours + 10 for the concrete and sub frame.   cash wise i'm in about 2200 total.

If you ever get to Barber Motorsports Museum (no, make that make the effort to go - vintage weekend is a hoot!) they have several specials with things like double joined 3s, 4s, 6s.
