Double-acting compact double-acting steam engine Kit

1/2 Bore 5/8 Stroke. Cast Flywheel

 

 

 

This engine is a compact double-acting steam engine. A slide valve is used to control the steam. The compact size is possible by using a ?Scotch Yoke? drive between the piston and the crankshaft. A Scotch Yoke is also known as a slide crank. An eccentric driven yoke operates the valve. Using a yoke drive eliminates the length of the crosshead commonly used in steam engines. 

The Scotch Yoke has greater frictional losses than a conventional crosshead-connecting rod arrangement, however, unless you are operating under a heavy load, the difference is small. This engine is non-reversing, but it may be assembled to run in either direction.

This engine requires a small set of screwdrivers, a pair of needle nose pliers and a small flat file to assemble. All the components are machined and don't need any further machining.
