Made the connecting rod today from the supplied casting. The drawing shows the bottom end split across the journal, decided to step the joint to locate it rather than rely on the bolts.

Starting to look like an engine. could build the parts in full size quicker than these little pieces, spent most of a day making that clevis on the valve rod,

Other projects have been stealing my time.
The kit came with castings for the valve rods but they look massive so thought I'd attempt a lighter looking set. Made these from some scrap bronze and stainless rod.
