Wellington, there are very nice plans for it to be found in the first volume of "Steam and Stirling Engines" published by Village Press. I am not a shill for Village Press ! :laugh: I just buy a lot of their books, and in fact, in general, I would not recommend this series which is published in three volumes because they are a bit overpriced in my opinion and there are few of the engines that I would want to build. This particular set of plans is quite good, comprehensive and well done.

Myers Engine Works also sells plans WITH CASTINGS in three different sizes.
