Tim, with CI flywheel in hand and base on table in front, describes his Domestic hit ‘n miss engine kit he is starting.


With Gene’s help Tim holds the raw castings as they will eventually appear in the finished “Domestic” engine. Neil Butterfield and Larry Carter also have identical kits. If we all live long enough someday we’ll have three of these beauties hitin' ‘n' missin' along.
