    Looks nice, How well does the burner work, what type of fuel? What type of material did you make the hot cap from?

    I do not have a drawing , I just think in my head and do it, it sounds like selfish - BUT that is real !
    I'm so sorry .
    If you want the parameters of it .... I will give it to you.

    Good job. Your engine is very similar to one designed by Thorn Mayes and published in HSM magazine, Sept.-Oct., 1983. It was my first Stirling engine and I still run it occasionally.
