Default Root & Vandervoort 5/16 Scale Model of 4HP Horizontal tank cooled, any videos?

Does anyone know of any videos showing the startup/running of the Root & Vandervoort 5/16 scale model of the 4HP horiizontal tank cooled engine?

Thanks for pointing me to any site/sites that have this.

Only have a picture of mine running, but will try to post.
I could not get mine to run on liquid fuel, outlet in mixer is to low, to keep fuel above needle valve. Changed over to propane, and engine runs fine.
Another area I have a problem was the low tension coil. Have 4 different brands, and only could get it to fire on the MjN coil. Think they have shut down, as their web site said they would be selling things after June, but did not get a reply from my emails.

Don I took a video of my 5/16 scale horizontal R&V running today and cant seem to load it on computer so you can see it. My son was going to try and do it for me when he gets a chance. Rocky
