My new Stirling

Hi,
Here are a few pics of my new Stirling engine. I bought from John Bold, the gentleman that built it in Turlock, CA. It will run about 5 hours on a 1lb propane cylinder. I had to modify a Weber type BBQ regulator to obtain about 10-12 inchs water column pressure at the burner. The power cyl. is 2 3\8" dia. and the displacer is 3¾" dia. It has a 1½ stroke.
John said he used a sewing machine wheel for a flywheel. The engine is of the Gamma configuration.
Thanks for looking.
Rex.

I have been wanting to build a Stirling for a long time. This one looks simple enough for me to do on my 100 year old lathe. Can I get in touch with you on materials and specs?
Thanks, Richard

Hi,
Sure you may, but remember that I didn't build the engine,
I bought it all machined and built, ready to run. And it runs good too. What you see in the picture is all the info I have.
Thanks for your interest.
Rex.
