Hi engine addicted

I would like to show you my Atom engine / my third engine / built from French
castings www.modelenginebuilder.com
I have built this engine one month because it is easy going kit.
I want to run engine on propane-butane gas but I have to learn
how to feed engine with gas . /YOUR HELP IS WELCOME /
This engine is probably my last single cylinder i would like to build
V twin now /is possible to buy casings for V twin somewhere ?/
Thank you
Best wishes from Slovakia.

Try Google Translate. I did and this:
Diamètre de la turbine (élément rotatif) : 40.2mm
nombres de pales: 24
angle d'attaque du jet de vapeur: 20° (attaque tangancielle)
Profil des pales: "en banane à bord tranchant pour limiter les pertes de charges)

Diametre du carter de turbine: 50mm
type de roulement: race, Øaxe 4mm, regime max dans huile 70000tr.min

Translated to this in English:

Impeller diameter (rotatable): 40.2mm

numbers of blades: 24

angle of attack of steam: 20 ° (tangancielle attack)

Profile blades "banana sharp edge to minimize pressure losses)

Diameter of the turbine casing: 50mm

bearing type: race, Øaxe 4mm max in oil diet 70000tr.min

Not perfect, but it does come close.

Thank you for the link. You engine looks beautifull. Can you make a movie while it is running? I love running modelengines. I collect them also. I have between 5-600 motors wright now. But not very rare...

Dear Kadora,

I will make some pic's from those , but when I have some time ok...I have to take out a lot of engines you know. They are all on glass plates & when one fall , the glass can break & than they are all falling too the bottom. Then I have a heart attack and nobody will see the pictures.

Hello Kadora,

Look what I found today on a swap meet....Only for 100$. Amazing how beautifull build. The cilinders,heads & pistons are from COX engines.







Do I need to tell that I'am very happy??

It's beautiful, but how the heck does it work?
Those two-cycle cylinder assemblies require a pressurized crankcase to transfer the fuel/air mixture to the cylinders and that crankcase won't provide pressure.

Hello Lawijt

Anyway if you are happy then everything is OK.
Lawijt start to build your own engine then you will be very happy.
