I don't know how to do that, so if anyone can give instructions it might help. I'll do a little experimenting on my own to see if I can figure it out, also.
I should have added on my first post that NO HEALTHY CORVAIRS WERE INJURED OR KILLED IN THE MAKING OF THIS ENGINE :-) I am a Corvair engine lover also, and built it out of parts that weren't any good for a full 6 cyl. engine.

AFTER you have entered all of the text you want in your message, click on "Attach" at the bottom. Search for the photos you want to attach then click OK. Once you click OK, it will post the message, that's why i say to make sure you have your message the way you want it before you attach photos.

Pictures need to be 100K i believe. So make sure you size them in a Photo program or paint.

Hope this helps.

use photobucket it is much easier and pictures can be any size as the thumbnail that posts here is small

I am very interested to see your work

As long as the attached picture was close to 100 kb, one should be able to click on the thumbnail picture and have it expand into an enlarged picture....

If you already have it on the internet (try photobucket. It's free) you can just put the address in the message wrapped in image tags and it will display.
Example
This is just the web address to the picture with in front and behind it.
Don't use the space after the http like I did here. I did that here so it wouldn't actually show the picture.
Here is that exact same line without the space.



BTW this photo is 116k.
Size doesn't matter like this here but bigger files will take longer to load especially for those with dial up connections.

I learned a trick about photobucket
Each pture has html codes under it like pointed out above, just copy and paste them ino your post

But there is also a little check box under each picture- if you check the pctures youwant to post and then go to he bottom of the page there is a button that says "generae HTML Codes"

One of the options is "clickable humnails for message boards"

THis keeps the thumbnails small for the dial up guys but you can click each image and get the original size picture

Here is the code

[URL=http: //i149.photobucket.com/albums/s49/ssmyers102/Picture042Large.jpg][IMG]ttp: //i149.photobucket.com/albums/s49/ssmyers102/th_Picture042Large.jpg[/IMG][/URL][URL=http: //i149.photobucket.com/albums/s49/ssmyers102/Picture039Large.jpg][IMG]http: //i149.photobucket.com/albums/s49/ssmyers102/th_Picture039Large.jpg[/IMG][/URL][URL=http: //i149.photobucket.com/albums/s49/ssmyers102/Picture015Large.jpg][IMG]http: //i149.photobucket.com/albums/s49/ssmyers102/th_Picture015Large.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

and here are the thumbnails

This is my 2 cylinder Corvair engine. I built it several years ago to install on an ultralight airplane of my own design, but probably fortunately for me I never got the plane built :-)
Using a non-repairable engine, I cut it down to one third length, using the end with the distributor. I added counterweights to the crank to overcome the terrible vibration caused by the offset in rod throws. I turned the fins off the cylinders and shrink fitted blocks of aluminum onto them. I then cut fins into the aluminum with the cutoff tool in my lathe. I shortened the heads and cut off the manifold logs, and welded on curved tubes for carburetors to mount on. Carbs are from a 450 Honda motorcycle. The crankcase has a Torrington thrust bearing added to handle thrust from the prop pushing the crank endways. I welded the sparkplug holes shut and drilled and threaded dual plug holes in each head for dual ignition. There are two ignitions, one being the distributer, points, and small coil, and the other is an electronic circuit attached to a hall effect sensor near the prop hub (which has a magnet embedded in it), and drives a dual motorcycle coil which fires on both intake and exhaust stroke. The valve covers are just shortened Chev. 350's. I machined the end of the crank, where the harmonic balancer would normally be, and tapered it. I then turned out a prop hub with the same taper internally, keeping the keyway and key for security.
My pictures won't post, and I'm sorry but I am computer illiterate, and all the advise you've kindly given me will take a while to figure out. If anyone is really interested in seeing the pictures, just email me & I'll attach them to a reply.

To add to what Matt said, you must be "logged in".
Look above your first post. The line should read:
Goto: Forum List . Message L . N Topic . Search . LOG OUT
If it doesn't say "Log Out" you are not logged in. That catches some people.

The easiest and simple way to get the pictures under 100k is to take them that way. Consult your digital camera booklet. Set the camera on the lowest resolution setting or set it so that it takes the maximum number of photos.

In picture # 4 it looks like the oil pump is broken. You should check that out.

Isn't that great engineering?

Here's the Youtube video of one of these running!
