Re: Request for Info - SunPulse engine

Thanks for sharing Drakester.. I find the sunpulse engine very interesting myself, it would be nice to get a look inside and see their layout But have yet to find any images or drawings with any significant details, or a worded description that's of any real use to me. They're probably trying their ...

Re: Building a two-cylinder stirling with pictures,now at 95

Nice work! http://polygamy411.com/wp-content/plugins/yahoo-messenger-emoticons/emoticons/thumbs_up_big.gif I really like the recoiled conrod.

Hey blade, Here's an interesting appendix from a Nasa document related to the point you've raised. There are numerous documents by Nasa and I’m sure you've come across many of them. http://i1259.photobucket.com/albums/ii543/vamoose2/ScreenShot085_zpsabdb81be.jpg pdf- https://www.google.com.au/url?sa...
