Simple 4 cycle vertical, 1.00 bore X 1.00 Stroke
For about 2 years I have been working on small compressed air engines. It has been my goal to have the last engine in the series be a radial. Well the radial is still a work in progress so I moving back to internal combustion.
This first engine is a simple vertical made with only a lathe and
It is made of bar stock.
It is intended as a first engine for new builders.
I hope to follow this with a series of engines with decreasing displacements and increasing complexity.
1/15/2007 it is together and painted and I am off to Cabin fever
The work in progress has gotten rather long, so it is now in 3 parts:
Go to building the engine page (5/11/2006 thru 9/10/2006)
Go to making it run page (9/17/2006 thru 11/9/2006)
Go to more testing page (11/1/2006 - present)
Go to next revision of this engine
If you are interested in reviewing the plans or building the engine, please write me david@FloridaAME.org .
I need to say my engine now runs. It starts in half a second with the drill and in 3 or 4 manual flips.
I made a box and cleaned up the ignition mess.
