    didn't quite have the power to spin the prop Daryl at warp said the recommended prop for those setups is a 2 blade 70 inch. I not sure if he got to try it again or not.

    I think the engine would do ok there are literally millions running down the interstate every day twisting well over 4000rpm all day long in 120 degree air temp coming off the road. I know I have beat the holy crap out of mine and never had problems,
    In aircraft they May be more comparable to a VW with a re-drive Time will tell

    Got a chance to visit with a buddy of mine this late after noon. He finished up a airdale with a harley engine.  Taxied it to 60mph but no lift off. He has a little work left to do but those are a very nice airplanes.

    Before you get your jig all built maybe look into using something like this for tubing. I bought some for my balance weights. It was really nice stuff I think it would be great for landing gear legs. Just a thought.
