What are your valve timings? (degrees around TDC / BDC) L

i think 10 degrees above top dead center
Thanks. Any plans to go bigger?
For a real challenge try a Deltic

well i have planes to make a v12 later but a Deltic looks pretty easy
It's harder than it looks to gear all three crankshafts together - I sort of managed it with Lego, but had to compromise by having one rotating in the wrong direction. L
