Thanks - plans and full build log are in the downloads section of the web site - it is on one of the later pages there.

It seems the plans and build sequence are missing from the downloads section.

I was interested into reading the build log, no traces of "radial steam" or so in all the 25 pages of the download section.

I just looked -its there on page 21 of the downloads section, titled 6-cylinder radial engine build log.

The downloads area is not the easiest thing to search, but it is there.

Could you explain how valves work? I can't imagine it. Maybe you can attach some drawings?

The valves consist of a rod that is a close sliding fit in its hole, and the rod has two narrowed down sections that connect the piston to the air/steam inlet at the top of the stroke, and connects the piston to the exhaust at the bottom of the stroke. Rather than have an exhaust tube, the valve rod just extends out the top of the block, connecting the piston opening to the open air.

Thank you, now everything's clear. I'm going to build one.
Unfortunately I have only lathe so I'm going to make crankcase from hexagonal bar.
