Andre,
My website has a video. Www.coildoctor.com.
Its under the MORE tab.
The engine was built from plans purchased from Leon Ridenour in Tennessee.
It's great little engine. I had mine built by a teenage machinist for encouragement into our hobby. Tim Lucius built the engine.
I will have it the Old Car Festival at Greenfield Village in September. Tim will be demonstrating it.
Thanks,
Brent

There was a build series on this engine in recent issues (2015) of the Home Shop Machinist magazine. Reprints are available from the publisher, Village Press if memory serves.
