    You can purchase the plans Directly from my website at www.burleighmachine.com


    The "Tiny Inline 4" is a 4 Stroke, 4 Cylinder, OHV, Spark Ignition, Splash Lubrication, Water Cooled, Gas engine. It runs on either Gasoline or Coleman Camping Fuel. The bore is .375" and the Stroke is .500". The camshaft has a 260 Degree Duration, and .041" lift. The valves face measure .156" in diameter. This gives it an RPM range of 2500RPM @ Idle, to over 9000 RPM on a free run. Plans Available Here

    This Engine took 7 months worth of "Free Time" from concept to a running engine. Then there was a couple months of refining to get her in good running shape. With the Plans I will have a full year invested in this engine. I have found it to be a good, reliable engine, and to boast a little bit, it was chosen as the "June Project Of The Month" at HomeModelEngineMachinist.com in 2011.

    The TI4 can be built using small hobby size manual machines, and is designed to use Viton O-Rings for piston rings. It is a great engine for someone with experience in Steam and Stirling engines. The plans were made with the hobby machinist in mind, and would be a great first multi-cylinder IC engine project. The small size keeps cost down. The largest piece is the block which can be machined out of a 1 3/4" Square bar of Aluminum, 3 1/2" Long. The Head is solid brass 3/8" thick, and can be described as nothing more than a rectangular bar with a bunch of holes drilled in it. The plans include detailed descriptions of some of the machining aspects, and a full write up on how to make a camshaft the easy way.

    There is a total of 32 pages with 30 pages of detailed drawings with machining notes on a few of the pages. I have also included a write-up on making a camshaft the easy way. Once the blank is made, the lobes can be formed in about 20 minutes on the mill, with a rotary table.

    The plans include drawings for the entire engine, water pump, radiator, fan and carburetor, with a list of references for materials, and notes on starting the engine. There are detailed views of some of the assemblies like the carb, distributor, and water pump.

    I am confident the engine can be made on small machines like the X2 and Mini Lathe. I am not sure the capacities of the Sherline machines. The biggest limiting factor is the camshaft tunnel, which is a 3/8" hole, 3 1/2" Deep. This could probably be done on a lathe with a clever setup. The largest part is the block which can be made from a 1 3/4" square bar of aluminum 3 1/2" long.


    The plans will be for sale in .pdf format for $40 US, and a hard copy will cost $55. I will accept PayPal as preferred payment method, as it is the easiest, but other arrangements can be made. The file, or hard copy will be sent once payment is received.

    [size=10pt][size=10pt]You can purchase the plans Directly from my website at [/size][/size]www.burleighmachine.com

    Thanks Baron, I can build an engine with less aggravation than posting a picture. I need to go back to school.

    Ogaryd that looks beautiful. I started one about a year ago and just now getting back to working on it in my free time ; not much of that lately . Seeing your pictures is giving me some incentive to get my a$$ back in gear. Any idea how long it took you to complete it? I have a log sheet with my hours listed but probably have quite a few pages to fill out before I am done.

    crankincraig,

    What LittleJohnny said,

    stevehuckss396 is the man


    Be sure to start a build thread once you have purchased the plans and started building. The plans are very informative and great value for money.

    Here is the link to the original Demon V8 build by Steve,
    Pull up a seat and Enjoy.

    Please be sure to keep us posted on the inline 4. th_wwp

    The inline 4 is a great project to start with before tackling the V8
    I watched both the builds on these engines as they were updated on HMEM and must say both builders were informative and helpful throughout. Credit to both guys.

    Thanks Crankincraig, The tiny4 took about a 10 months to build and was easy to make run. It was a fun build. I've seen Steves Little Demon and it is a beautiful engine, On my list for sure. Good luck with your tiny4 and keep us up to date. Gary
