"Vintage" Stirling Cycle Engine        11/29/2004

"Vintage" is a water cooled stirling cycle engine that I designed a few weeks ago with the idea of using it as a heat source for my Miser engines at the shows. It has a belt driven pump to circulate the warm cooling water to warmer rings that the Misers sit on and the running Misers serve as cooling "radiators" for the Vintage engine.



I made the preliminary concept drawing the first week of November 2004 and the engine ran the first time "right out of the box" on Nov. 18th.


Jerry sells plans and hard to find parts for a number of different stirling cycle engines and internal combustion engines from the simple to complex .
