Horizontal Hit and Miss, 22mm bore X 15mmstroke 4/16/2010
I should have replied to your last email sooner , but got engrossed in this project. Have my model almost finished.
I multiplied your measurements x 30, used 2,3,4,&5 mm. Cap heads, Flywheels steel, Piston & conrod alloy, bought the gears, bore is 22mm x stroke 25mm. Just have the valves to finish, plus ignition, ( would like to use electronic , what would you suggest ? ) You will notice the cylinder/hopper/base is 3 parts, not up to machining that ! This is the first IC engine I have built. Will send photos when complete .
(Ronald multiplied the inch dimensions by 30 to convert to mm. It is much simpler that using the 25.4 and the model comes out about 20% larger. The challenge is converting the screws and thread sizes. David)
