    Smile Building a Steam Engine

    I am in the process of building a steam engine using an 8 hp. 4 cycle gas engine. I am using its current intake valve for exhaust. I have added another lobe onto the opposite side of the cam to open the valve on each revolution. I will be using a valve of my own design to inject steam through the spark plug hole. I will be weld filling the exhaust side of the cylinder head and planing it to reduce the combustion chamber as much as possible. I am converting an old milling machine into a precision cam grinder for future engines. Anyone interested in this project can contact me on this site or call me at 319-462-3327 between 8 am and 2 pm central time also you can check out our website Thomas-superwheel.com or email service@thomas-superwheel.com
    My future plans for this project are to sell converted engines complete, parts,machine camshafts and heads or plans and instructions for people capable of doing all or part of work.
