Victorian Hit & Miss gas Engine for boat
« on: May 01, 2019, 09:55:08 am »
I designed an electronic governor to control its speed. The next step is to build a petrol boat that will be controlled by a variable pitch propeller.

Putting that engine in a boat ought to really get it up and moving!

I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for this one!!!

I've got the variable pitch propeller part - now I just need the engine! Looking forward to when they are available.
