M91 Vertical Hit & Miss Signed and Numbered 1 & 2
« on: August 19, 2019, 06:31:48 pm »
Here they are....

The first 2 of the first production run of the new M91 from Jin.

They look great and run great. Only issue is one has a bent crank so a flywheel wobbles.
I am pretty certain Jin will make it right.


Here's a little video.

Enjoy,

Gil

Way COOL Gil .... just like a kid in a candy shop!

They run very nicely Gil...crankshaft bend is a nuisance, but as you point out, Jin will make that right.  They really are a handsome engine, I love the look and functionality.

Hi,
I am very glad that you can start the vertical engine normally.
I am sorry because I am not sure what happened during the transportation, but I will provide you with new accessories again. 😊

Those are very nice looking - they look better than expected. Love the videos. What direction do the engines run?  Jin’s video looks like he started his in a clockwise rotation with the radiator facing to the left. It looked like you were working to start yours spinning the engine clockwise with the radiator facing to the right.

One other question - when did your two engines actually ship?

These are pretty cool.
I generally prefer to build my own engines, but with shop time almost non-existent this is an interesting option.
Thanks for posting the video.
