Hi Brent,
thank you for your post. I have used an alcohol burner for now but I would like to make a gas burner. Since I think it will be quite complecated to reproduce the original cilindrical carburetor for gas lighting what should I do for the refrigeration of the cilinder? Just a water tank conacted to the engine or it would be better to ad also a water pump for circulation?
Any idea?
thanks, kind regards

Davide

Davide,
I sent you a private message regarding cooling--did you receive it? You can easily connect a small cylindrical water tank of about 12-20 liters to the engine's inlet and outlet for passive water cooling. A pipe from near the top of the tank connects to the top (water inlet) of the engine while a pipe leads from the outlet on the side of the engine to the bottom of the cooling tank.

There are different sizes of these engines. What is the diameter of your flywheel and the outside diameter of the heated cylinder? I can help if mine is the same.

Hello, thank you for the attention! In the pictures you can see the dimensions of the cylinder and the flywheel. I also studied the part I intend to use. If possible, please give me the distance between the two holes of this part.The sizes of the pictures are irrigation, in millimeters.
