Default Korting engine

Hi All,

Look what I found in the Sept. 26th 1886 issue of "American Machinist" Is there a Korting in existence? Sorry I had to scan it in 3 pics so there is a lot of overlap. The paper is a lot bigger than my scanner. Looks like a pretty neat engine. Looks like it's Hit and Miss controlling the exhaust valve but not latching up. The gov. moves a tapered bar in and out to connect the push rod to the cam parts. I suppose it's variable exhaust opening???? Also looks like the intake operates every time. Not sure how good that works. Rob

Rob, I believe 5 or 6 of these exist today. They were built by Koerting in Hannover, Germany. by Boulet in Paris and by Koerting in New York ( supposedly). I have two of the French and two of the German ones in my Registry. The earliest engines were two cylinder, two cycle and then built later in a 4 cycle, single cylinder version. All were flame ignition however the four cycle iterations used a very curious mechanical flame ignitor.

Below are two photos. The first is a German built engine in storage at the Technikum at Deutz in Porz Germany, and the other was made in France and in a Museum near Paris ( Missing its original flame ignitor).

Question: Does anyone have a video of a Korting engine running with its proper flame ignitor ?? I would be most interested in seeing it.
