Well then,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Perhaps you should post a video of your home made machined block, head, crank and cam, and intake, so we everyone can check it out. That is, unless you have not built it yet. And if that is the case,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,we can wait.........

Sounds terrible, mostly seems out of balance, but it actually runs! Amazing engine-unity. I'm betting you'll get the bugs out of it.

I agree on taking stuff apart. I am good at that. Waiting for more of Tod's blocks to be made and might have to step up to the plate on one of those. I think in time, George will work his out.

Well it is a uneven fire it is not going to sound like stock 4 cylinder. Harley's sounds funny also but the go like hell. It is like one of the cylinder heads being off the v8. The firing order is hit, hit, miss, hit miss,miss hit. So it will sound different. The big question is how will it power a car.

Yes there is a balancer. It seems smooth on the stand, it also sounds a lot better when you hear it run in person. The sound did not come through the same as it sounded when we were running it.But like I said how it runs is what I care about.
My John Deere's Tractors I had when I was Farming sounded different also, but were strong tractors. They were 2 cylinders with both pistons coming to the top at the same time.

I don't think it sounds bad, but I do own a Harley.

Yep, Harleys and John Deeres do not fire symmetrically, and they run just fine. In fact, they are loaded with torque
