This was the first engine that I built without plans. It is a single cylinder Stirling engine with the power piston and displacer in seperate cylinders arranged either side of the flywheel. I haven't kept any records of the piston sizes or swept volumes as made it up as I went along. I chose this arrangement so I could have long linkages as I like to see engines with a lot of moving parts.
