Similar to the mason engine. A stirling engine as usual with a smaller long piston attached to the power piston. The smaller piston compresses, then a port whole lines up and lets cool air rush in causing the vacuum. Then lines up at another port to fill the vacuum ,for down stroke. The second piston is an open cycle.
