This project is finished!
To make the engine presentable, I mounted it on a wood board. The board was made by my dad, as he is the woodworker in the family. The unsightly ignition module got hidden in a cutout under the board. The clunky spark plug cap and cable was replaced with reproduction spark plug wire that would be found on full size hit ‘n miss engines together with a clip. Two binding post where also added to provide a place to connect the battery.
This concludes this build log (is that what blog stands for???).
I hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did.
As always, If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.
