Default Re: A Hybrid Stirling Trike

Yes C-S I'm going to setup the cooling system as a thermo-siphon system with the copper fire extinguisher casing as the water reservoir. I thought about using a radiator instead, but I think a reservoir type cooling system should work fine as well as being a lot more robust.

Because I haven't built a Stirling engine before I wanted to give it a try. If it doesn't work out then it can be used to run a fan in my workshop which the vertical gamma type are very good at doing.
I suppose this project is about the joy of building something from collected bits and pieces and if it all works then that's a bonus. Producer gas and other species of engines are quite possible as well, but we shall see how we go.
