Steam Engine 3

I drew a two-valve system that would use one push-rod and a linkage to make the two valves oscillate in opposite timing, but then I realised I could do that with a one-valve system. The heads are simpler and it's less complicated without the linkages. Also did a major re-design of the engine block.



Two-valve system


One valve system. Instead of the pipe there could be a port directly into the cylinder.


The piston is at top-dead-centre here.
