A-1 Machining's Version of a Walking Beam Engine
« on: January 03, 2014, 04:53:34 PM »
I've built 2 versions of a walking beam engine designed by A-1 Machining.  Here's a video of the latest version.  As I make a new version I try new things, like adding piston rings or making slight adjustments in valve design.


Pix are attached

The green one was the first one.

Cheers,
Phil

Again, thanks for the pics and the video!

Great work on these walking beam engines.  It runs so smoothly!

A walking beam engine like this is on my list to do someday...

Thanks for sharing,
Kim
