Hot Air Engine Castings Kits  (Kits include Drawings)

The hot air (Stirling Cycle) engine is a unique style of engine cycle. Basically the engine functions by heating and cooling a captured volume of air. These engines have no intake or exhaust. At one end of the cycle the air is heated which builds pressure forcing the piston up. At the opposing end of the cycle the same volume of air is then cooled, creating a partial vacuum and uses atmospheric pressure to force the piston back down.
  

Engine casting kits are for the serious machinist/modeler and are NOT ready to assemble.
They require a great deal of machine work prior to assembly.
Hot Air Stirling Cycle Engine casting kit. By far, this was the most hassle free Stirling engine I have ever built. It runs from the pressure and vacuum built up inside the engine.
