Miniature 302 running engine
Posted by gbritnell on Wednesday, February 4, 2004 8:47 PM
Gentlemen,
I have posted pictures of some of my model work and car art on Photobucket.
In my model engines you can find pictures of my 1/3 scale 302 Ford V8 and my scratch built 4 cylinder engine. They are both working miniatures and run on pump gasoline with spark ignition. I have also posted some of my car art . The link for the pictures is:

Hope you enjoy something a little different.

Thanks Jared,
Some of the engines are in what you could call a kit form. You get the rough castings (iron, brass, aluminum) and you have to do all of the machining. I started out with kits when I was getting into the hobby but now I generally scratch build my models. The 302 has nearly 2500 hours of building time in it.
The block is aluminum with iron sleeves to form the water jackets. The heads are iron with stainless steel valves. Everything was machinined from bar stock,
even the rocker covers and oil pan. The spark plugs are made from teflon bar stock for the insulators. The distributor has a very small set of points to trigger a miniature electronic ignition. It has full pressure oiling by way of an oil pump driven off of the end of the distributor shaft as in the 1:1 engine.
