I could be wrong, but I think it is because the plans are no longer in the archive.
Probably the link is broken, I can not access it either.
If you send me your email, I can send you solidworks model of the engine.
Well I don't know if this will work but this is a new link if people are interested. http://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/downloads/brass-stirling-60-152.html
If the link doesn't work then here is the manual way to find things in the first photo.
The plans are complete as my CAD model shows, the only thing I didn't use was the crank spacer and I made the hole in the power piston 1mm from the top not the 1.5mm.
I have included a 3D pdf so everyone can have a look ( ps you know you can make parts invisable to see inside things) and a couple of renders of my work.
Hope this helps, cheers.

The link to the revised plans from J. Jonkman works!
Glad it all worked.
Now expect to see a lot of build threads for this Stirling................OK!
any ideas for measuring its efficiency sir.....designs are too good...we feel lik doing it as a project
I'm into stirling engines at the moment but I can't think of what to build it with but something easy
Sent from my iPad using Model Engines
Thank you Jeroen Jonkman for providing a very nice set of plans for the Stirling Engine!
In the spirit of giving back, I used the plans to make a 3D CAD model with FreeCAD. The files can be downloaded from the FreeCAD forum, and I also included all the pieces of the model in .stp (step) format there too (if anybody wants to use them for CNC machining). That FreeCAD forum post is here.
Anyone using FreeCAD can export the files to other common file formats as well. If anyone has any questions about the model please post them there as I'll have a much better chance of seeing them there.
I'm making your “Stirling 60″ but I just can’t get hold of any Pyrex test tube of that size, can you help?
I’ve asked the PYREX suppler here in Sweden and there said they don’t have any test tubes in that dimension.
Hi im a cnc teacher and my students are currently building the stirling 60 and we cant figure out the length of the missing parts.... can you send me the solid works drawing please.
regards thank you
If you don't mind would you email me the SolidWorks files for the "Jeroen Jonkman's Sterling 60 plans" to me at <hmem_stirling60.kenl AT recursor.net>. Why the long, weird email address? That's a disposable email address that forwards to my main email.
By the way, if you have a Gmail account you can post the files up to Google Drive (which comes with Gmail so to speak). That way you could make the files available for anyone to download. Change your sharing settings explains how to set the sharing option. If you post the files on Google Drive then feel free to send me the link instead of emailing me the files.
If you prefer Microsoft to Google, Microsoft's OneDrive is similar to Google Drive.
still having trouble finding the plans with the missing rod measurements. HELP !
There's a revision to the plans and page 7 has been added with the dimensions of the missing rods. Just download it again THIS LINK should work.
thank you (COGSY) for the info.
Thank you so much for posting the plans to your engine. The main shaft bearing housing does not look like any of the pieces in the finished unit. I think it attaches to the main shaft support pillar but am unsure.
I would appreciate any help
I think originally the bearing carrier was glued to the pillar .You can see the pin at the top of the pillar and the hole and counter bore in the bearing carrier on the drawings
From memory I tapped the carrier and the pillar M3 and used a stud to assemble the two parts Im not to keen on just gluing just my preference
PLANS ARE NOT THERE, PLEASE REPOST LINK
I have tried to learn CADing this week and used Jonkman's sterling '60' as my first project. There are some inaccuracies for all screw holes, I did not make any countersunks and the ends are flat. Anyway, here is a link to the Fusion360 project if anyone wants to have a look or download any .step files.
