Very detailed series of videos by Find Hansen on building a diesel model engine

(1/2) > >>

cfellows:
I heartily recommend you watch this series of 3 videos published by Find Hansen.  In them, he describes the assembly of a model, true diesel engine including detailed explanations of how the varies parts work.  Very instructional and very enlightening, not to mention inspirational!

Thanks, that is quite something! Saw his hotbulb engine videos a few years back, he was just starting experimenting with a pure diesel back then

Chuck, what is the meaning of 'true' diesel engine - are most I see 'fake' ones?   :noidea:

Admiral_dk:
Nice to see Finn finally give some info on how he managed to make a real diesel engine - thank you very much for bringing this to my attention Chuck  :ThumbsUp:

The "Fake Diesels" are for instance the beloved CI ( compression ignition ) engines used in Aero models, where the fuel is in the air (as a gas) during inlet from a carburettor, and the fuel (usually Ether) starts the combustion - a true diesel engine has an fuel injector in the cylinder head and only compress air and the injected fuel starts the combustion when it meets the hot (from the compression) air. I hope this isn't clear as mud  :???:
