Hi everyone I'm new to this forum. I'm wondering if any other people have converted gas engines to run on steam. Engines large enough to do practical work. There maybe a place on this forum already I haven't had time to search. I have converted a 10 HP Tecumseh gas engine that I have run on air as I haven't had time to build a boiler yet. The engine can run a GM alternator to charge batteries and runs 1100 RPM unloaded and drops to 800 under full load on 125 psi air pressure. The motor develops 60 ft. lb. torque at 0 RPM, on gasoline it was rated at 18 ft. lbs. at 2000 RPM and this is one of the advantages of a steam engine, they develop almost as much power at 0 RPM as running full RPM. Another advantage is that a steam engine can use any fuel that will burn and boil water. Of coarse there are some disadvantages but I'll go into those later. I'm looking forward to hearing from people on this forum. I'll post some construction photos later when I have more time.
