I like to resurrect this old thread.
The Hoglet is almost finished and I am looking at the Edwards 5 drawings for the next project.
Sheet 5 The crankcase has 10 #6-32 Holes, 2 on each of the faces not occupied by a cylinder.
What are they for?
Would not oil leak out?

Those holes are intended to be for the engine mounts. You can see the main mount ring with the arms attached to those holes in the picture at Image

Thanks. That is a beauty. Looks like a sparker instead of glow.
