The file of parts for this model is 6MB and so unable to post here, I used Assembly 2 in FC V0.16 and worked from the base up, after having created subassemblies of the Moving, con-rod and valve beams and also the crankshaft.

No problem. Just curious about how you designed the parts. Did you used PartDesign or Part WB?

The parts were created in Part Design WB with the occasional use of Part WB for primitives, sweep and loft etc. where necessary.
