The roll pin is in the intake :o

I will not hit and miss right without it. Needs a bit or bob. The Flywheels are from this tiny steam...met a gasser first.

Hi all,
 Roll pin replaced with more permanent fix, used a 10-24 thread in case hole size needs to be adjusted for altitude.

Based on the you tube id , I am sure Doug may be able to add more info...

Once upon a time I ordered a casting set, advertised as "can be built with drill press". My drill press was not big enough so I was unable to complete several of the operations alluded to in the provided blueprint. Many years later I met Herb and eventually the fly wheels were drafted for the above blue engine.

Will take video when I get another engine on bench.

This one came from Herb with a hole that accepts a 5/16 tap ( blue one took a 10-24 tap)
