Finally it all came together about a week before R&T. I was cutting it close but it ran like a champ through the entire four days of the show so I guess it was all worth it.  Here are pictures of the running product.   The needle valve worked fine as did the buzz coil arrangement.  A little white paint on the raised letters and she was ready for showtime. For that matter, so was I!
Notice the ingenious use of copper for a fuel tank. Nice battery box...
The show lineup.
Here's a nice shot of the little bugger doing the slow-motion chug at Rough & Tumble.  The Thermoil and St. Mary's got most of the attention but the Foos ran all day long with no more than oil checks.  It was a real champ and I was really happy with it.
