This is not CNC technology; this guy made everything at home on his lathe and drill press. Took 1220 hours (a year and a half?) to make the 261 pieces. Note the end-loaded crankshaft into the block (like an Offy), 12 individual cylinder heads, TINY rods and pistons, dual "underhead" cams with pushrods to rockers in the heads. And, he did break-in using an electric drill driving the crankshaft!

Even if you're not an engineer, you'll love this.

It's a kinetic sculpture! Definitely a work of art. Pretty neat. If I had that sitting on my desk I'd never get any work done
