  Guys,
 
   A few more pics of the parts and pieces of Dunkin's "A".
 
rear cylinder block. notice the steam port holes in the valve cylinder. they are square ended. Dunkin does this to make the engine "bark" a bit more that it useually would. his Ps4 and "J" are examples that his theory on steam cylinder ports sure works.

front block, sort of back together. Dunkin's own design on an exhaust manifold for the limited area under the boiler.

That's sure some pretty work, but the real beauty is that we know that thing will RUN!

This is an unuseual piece of machine work. It is the coupling between the front and rear engines of the "A".  Pin to the left (front) is the "up and down" pivot point. The right side of this arrangement, is in an open sided pocket (rear) and pivots "left and right". this is Dunkin's own design for this coupling.

   I received a very nice phone call from non other than Dunkin Herring. He informed me that he has both sets, front and rear, valve gear on their way.Dunkin feels that very shortly, he will have the chasis of his "A" running on air. What an accomplishment.

hi all,
 
charleytt:  sorry charley...duncan is a super man, but not superman.  i'll be delighted to see it in any form that he's finished so far.  and yes, i hope he brings the chassis to the unmeet...there's a lot that we can learn from him.

WOW!!! What awesome work. With the cylinder, is that a lost wax cast? It looks so smooth. That is some CLASS "A" work Dunkin. No pun intended.
Can't wait to see her.

   Friends,
 
   I had a couple of hours to spend visiting with dunkin on my way back home from California and Train Mountain. And, of course, had to take a few pictures of his "A". Its really shaping up. I'll post what few snap shots I have. Its some nice workmanship.
