    At one time you were looking for an alternative cylinder lubricant. I found information about this Teflon coating in another steam forum.

    Lohring Miller

    "I picked up this great Teflon coating spray from Grainger that works really well. These sprays were originally marketed for non-stick cookware resurfacing...but due to the toxicity of Teflon fumes when overheated, they now call it simply “dry lubricant” for liability reasons. It actually bonds to metal surprisingly well...but takes several days to coat and re-coat it sufficiently. I plan on coating both the cam and lifter contact surfaces with it to keep the friction down...I did this to hydraulic gear pump components with good results, using it as a high pressure water pump"

    Back at the beginning of this thread, there is a discussion about a "piscesII" engine, and "George" KBC posted some pics of a very interesting looking engine in for a flash steam boat. Can anyone tell me more about this engine ? I assume its a single cylinder poppet valve uniflow, and assume the great driven apparatus on the side is a feed water pump?
    thx!

    You can contact George aka Ooya on MEM or Model Boat Mayhem.He did a thread about flash steam and that engine on the RC groups site
    He no longer posts on this site I believe
    The pumps are for water and fuel
    The engine is based on Mr Kirtleys design Piscese as for the rest George will know
