I have got a Lister D already thanks. This engine is designed to use a Suffolk Punch engine (or modern equivalent). The completed engine in really small and termed 'minimal gauge'. In effect, its not a model, but full size really small engine that you ride on as opposed to being pulled behind.

If you build the battery version, you can run them indoors!

Have you got a petrol engine for it?  I have a Suffolk Punch in the workshop which you'd be welcome to.

Thats a very kind offer thanks, but I have a Loncin (chinese type Honda equivalent) ready to fit.

Engine cradle completed and wheels fitted with sprockets. The cradle is a very clever set of laser cut parts. The petrol engine sits on the top of the cradle and drives the dynamo which sits underneath. The white pulley acts as a clutch to control pressure on the drive belt.

The sprockets are mounted onto the axles using taperlocks - fiendishly simple, and yet something I had never come across before. The engineers on this forum will probably be aware of such systems.

Very nice, Strang!
That little engine looks like it's got chunky enough bits to go and do proper work, well done  :D
