Development

V Twin Marine Engine

Based on input from steam boat modellers, we have designed a more compact version of our Marine Twin Engine. The V Twin uses the same base as our Marine Single Engine and is 124mm tall compared to 160mm for the standard Marine Twin.

Should be available to order mid-2019, contact us for more details.

The following are drawings from 3D CAD.



Marine Single and Twin Short Version Engines

Based on input from steam boat modellers, we have designed a shorter version of our Marine Twin Engine. The short single and twin marine engines are 145mm tall compared to 160mm for the standard engines, otherwise they are the same.

Should be available to order mid-2019, contact us for more details.

The following are drawings of the Single Cylinder Marine Engine from 3D CAD (Twin Marine will be similar).



Reversing/Throttle Valve

The new valve will allow our engines to be run in forward and reverse and their speed controlled by use of a single lever.

The valve does this by directing the steam (or air) from the input port to the exhaust port and simultaneously the exhaust port to the input port. The valve will also regulate steam pressure to the engine in both directions, see video on Facebook.

Should be available to order May 2019, contact us for more details.

The picture is of the prototype fitted to the Marine Twin (with optional manifolds), the final production version may differ slightly.
