Very inspiring - a tribute to top level dedication and amazing attention to detail. Wasn't sure at the end if it ran under its own power, somehow.... didn't even matter.

The last slide said that he invested 1220hours into it.... wow.

I think it is running on air pressure not actually internal combustion. No glow plugs or spark plugs!

True but at least the heat is only from friction and not combustion which will keep expansion under control. He used some clear lube on assembly. You would think it would shed it quickly by centrifugal force. These projects always interest me but to be honest I love the actual working ones.

Here's a v-12 that actually runs on combustion....
