Cylinder Heads
« on: June 10, 2010, 08:36:03 PM »
Just wanted to show off this cylinder head I made. It is for a small V8 engine that I'm working on. It measures only 4-1/2 inches long. The "blank" was made on a manual mill and everything else was done using LazyCam and Mach3!! I made 5 pieces.

BEAUTIFUL Steve !
Using LC, the degree of precision is so good, there would be no need to CC them.
Maybe Cnm them instead. LOL
I want to see this thing RUN ! Be sure to keep us posted.
What fuel will it be running on ?
THANKS !

Excellent work Steve - I just love stuff machined out of the solid.

Hi Russ!

It will run on gas. I dont need to but i use 110 octane "Turbo Blue" because it smells so darn good.

I just posted here to show the head because it was 90% CNC. There was some recent "bad press" with LC lately and I thought it would be nice to see what it can do. I have a thread at a model engine site that I update regularly with pics as i go along.
