Default Home made Steam engine and water pump

Hello all:
Here is a homemade steam engine, 1" bore and 1" stroke, double acting and a piston valve. In the second video it is running a Stuart Centrifugal pump I made several years ago.
I hope these show up.
Thank you for watching------don

Good job on your engine, and what is really nice is how you demonstrate it's power output with a very well designed pump as well, that's an interesting project to watch working, it takes patience to machine parts very accurately, to get good results like that.

dparker---Thats very clever, how you routed the lines to the ends of the cylinder. I have heard of using brake cylinders for model steam/air engines before, but I couldn't figure out how people got around the internal passages that are required in steam engine cylinders. Now I know. I'm impressed!!!!----Brian
