I was looking through the gallery and saw your stirling engine, so I went down and dusted off one of mine.. This engine was the second stirling cycle engine that I built.. It is a scratch built design, using a .625 power cylinder  X  .750 stroke.. The displacer piston is a 1.000" X .750 stroke.. The engine is fairly fast with an estimated speed of aprox. ( I need a tach ) 3000 rpm.. The alcohol reserve is built into the base.

   I will send you several pictures and you can make your pick of what you want.  I had it running while I took some of the pictures, you can see the flame. but the camera was too fast to see any motion...
