A buddy of mine let me borrow most of the parts for his Monitor hit-and-miss gas engine (Baker?), and I am going to try to model it in 3D.

JasonB has been helping me with this; thanks Jason.

I will have to pick a scale.
The bore is 4.5", and the flywheel is about 17.5" diameter.

I don't really care about exact scales, but I like a bore of at least 2", and I think 2.5" would be better, so that would make the flywheel about 9.75" diameter, which would be ok.

So the scale factor would be 0.5555...., so much for round numbers, but I like it.

I did not realize this was a headless engine until I saw these parts.
Never really thought about it.
