This engine is a two cylinder Stirling engine of my own design with the
pistons and dispacers running in the same cylinder. This arrangement
makes for interesting looking linkages. It would have been simpler and
more efficient to have mounted the crankshaft above the cylinders,but I think it
looks more impressive with lots of rods and levers.This is a very busy
looking engine when it is running especialy when running slow. The
pistons have a diameter of 19mm with a stroke of 12.6 mm, the stroke of
the displacer is 19mm.
