Good to see Doc...

This engine set is just so brilliant that I'm considering getting a couple more of them. An indication of the fit and fidelity of the parts...

Once the first bank was assembled with the assistance of the brass template, this is the complete intake manifold mated to the front row. It fits perfectly and to the correct depth into the backs of all the cylinder heads.

Eduard provide resin pushrods for the cylinders, but advises you to to use 0.4mm wire for the breather pipes that run between heads and also join each cylinder. For those of you not blessed with the Metric system, this is 26 guage Craft wire or equivalent. I picked up a spool of black for the oil pipes, and will use silver for ignition leads and fuel pipes, as the P/E feet provided has a flat cross section and just doesn't like right.

The recommended length of wire between covers is 6.1mm...

However, my measurements make it closer to 5.66mm or thereabouts...

Which means that I'm halving the distance to just short of 6mm on each wire, and pre-drilling the receiving ends shown here on each cylinder with a Micro bit to provide some stability.

Gives a dimension to two decimals and says "or there abouts".
RESPECT.

Thanks for the photo Martin.

Well, after all it's only a cheap plastic Caliper from Daiso. The point for those following is that you need to lop off about half a mil according to Eduard's measurements.

The wire I've chosen will be great for ignition leads, but is a tad 'bendy' for these straight pipes. And having 52 year-old eyes isn't helping much either.
