Looks like a fun project. The challenges of recovery, restoration, and performance improvement are time consumers but provide much in rewards. cool

Question on the balance of the single cylinder engine: What % of reciprocating vs rotating weight are you trying to do? Seems I recall that a number of 36% to 40% was often used on performance poppers but do not remember exactly.

Although the tungsten material (Mallory metal alloy) is good to use, it is expensive. shocked

Good Luck on your interesting project. cheers
