Oh how i wish it was truly Job totally done, unfortunately it's just the spinner, and that breeds another job of making the starter drive with a rubber lining and a sprag clutch to catch the over run.
Lot's more to do

Ah well, we'll be patient. I figured you at least had an ignition system to create yet before we hear it purr.

Starter drive? Methinks you've spoiled yourself Brian. When I was a youngster all we had were "chicken sticks". Big Grin

Just kidding. When I had my helo the starter drive / fuel pump box was an absolute necessity.

Now it's back to the serious stuff, making piston rings.
Just turn a tube of Iron a little oversize.
Split it lengthwise to create the ring gap.
Clamp it in the chuck tightly to close the gap.
Turn the ring to size inside and out.,
Part off. 
26mm diameter--- 1.5mm wide---1mm thick.

There now that was simple wasn't it ?????

Hi Tom The plugs are from the hit and miss engines sold by Banggood. I
also have kits from Hemingway. to make circular discharge plugs if necessary.
