Wall engine dwgs.

Anyone have info as to availability of drawings and/or a construction article on the Wall 4? I'm wondering about the practicality of doing one of these from barstock. Many thanks, Giacomo28 :twisted:

OK, Andrew...all went well and I have saved the Whittle V8 files to my computer and printed out a new copy. Quality is excellent and I want to again express my appreciation for your making these available to me! Very nice of you to take the time and trouble. =Giacomo28=
