    Are you still here apex1? If so, I need to ask you a question. Now that this has become a drivel thread ( no thanks to rasorinc) I guess that I have the right to ask your advice on an engine I recently thought of. Since my dad has acquired a welder, I can do a lot of stuff that I wasn't able to do when I didn't have one. Well, I'll get to the point. If I made a cylinder, with a smaller diameter cylinder shaped peice of metal on the end that serves as a combustion chamber. It would be easier to just show you what I'm talking about. I'll give you a rough sketch :)
    Thanks

    Ah.. hello Mike!
    First you should excuse, rasorinc was one who fought for your thread, not the one who poisoned it! If you look back some posts youll notice that there are some missing?! Deleted by Admin, due to our intervention.

    Your engine describes in principle a engine we did discuss earlier. Replace #s 8 + 9 with Valves and it´ll work. But it should be a very heavy engine as her predecessors had been.
    It can be done, no doubt, but my knowledge for example is not sufficient to design it !?!

    Regards
    Richard

    good. thanks for your advice man! I have thought for weeks now, and I have realized the only thing that I can build that is HALFWAY legal is a tractor, with that engine that I designed. I have a welder, so I can build a heavy duty metal tractor, and it would be slow and safe and burn anything. I need another answer from you though. (please! :)) I need to know how much power a 1 inch bore cylinder running on wvo put out if it is 1 and a half inches long, and had a stroke of 1 inch?
    thanks! and when you say replace 7 and 8 with valves, you mean check valves or what type of valves? I think I'll replace the fuel inlet pipe with a tap valve to control the flow of fuel to the engine, so it willl be the throttle. I will also add a decompresser tap to the hot bulb.

    You should try to find hot bulb engine drawings through the I-net. Then just scale it down and drive your neighbour mad, by asking him to get it done.;)

    Yes. I will still build one as soon as I can still, but I "do'nt" have enough money yet I'm "shure", So I will focus on building my burn all liquid tractor. Ahh, yes, it will even burn water! (yes it will! just put water in the fuel tank, and the hot bulb will turn it into steam!)
