I need a experienced sterling engine builder to build my engine design. Prefer east coast Australia. Prepared to pay for time and materials. Need to have cad as I don't. This is a project of mine but sadly I am not that good a machinist and I really don't have the right equipment. I would appreciate your input in regards to cylinder/ stroke sizing and anything else you deem would assist this project

The design is a cross between a four stroke and a sterling and different stroke/ timing setup. All pretty straight forward for someone with the ability to machine tight tolerance. I like experimental ideas and effiency gains so that's my motivation but I lack the required skill or machinery to build this effectively

I was just looking at a Patent drawing of a 4 stroke/hot air engine. US patent number 1,097,068 if you are interested.

Just checked that patent out and it's nothing like that. Interesting concept but never heard of it being utilised anywhere. The professional builders still run a normal sterling system. Talked to a prototype company and was informed that they got out when another company produced sterlings commercially that required a temp of 10000 degrees for solar power generation. The technology had surpassed their development program so they concentrate on wind and water now
