What I did while Mayhem was away....
« on: March 22, 2012, 03:28:21 PM »

I made a yoke engine to ease the withdrawal symptoms.

All made from scrap, and no eggs were harmed during construction. :-))

It turns ok, a little tight yet with newness, and I havent quite got the timing spot on yet.

Brownie point to anyone who can work out how it works!  :}

I presume the smaller wheel has a pin which engages a vertical slot in the piece which is clamped onto the piston?

Full points Mr Maddock. :-))

The design is intended to reduce piston skirt wear on the cylinder by doing away with a top end pivot. The piston rod is fixed into the piston.

Its an old design, dont see many of them about now and was origionally a steam engine.

But, whats it for? What is any engine for? Wasting energy, making noise and if you are lucky, doing a bit of work!

Its a rotary valve incorporated into the crank shaft. The inlet is at the rear between the upright and the flywheel. As the crank rotates, a port is opened to the supply which feeds through drillings in the upright to the top of the cylinder. 180 deg on, the exhaust port opens the drillings in the upright to a vent passing through the centre of the crank to the outside.
