  • Free gas engine plans

    A couple of my students are looking for a set of plans for a simple gas engine. They are on a budget so free is the key word here.

    Any thoughts or suggestions will be appreciated.

    Back issues of HSM or MW or "The Shop Wisdom of Phillip Duclos." They all have detailed plans of a number of his designs. His "Odds and Ends" or "Hit and Miss" might be good choices as they dont require castings. Duffy

      EG.
      Here you are. Free plans on a Webster 4 cycle hit and miss engine.
      Great plans. Just finished mine.

        I haven't seen this Lindsay reprint book myself, but it apparently includes everything about building a c.1900 engine, including doing your own casting. I guess the Webster would be a lot easier, it depends if you are trying to build something that looks like an old engine, or just something that works.

        Its a while since I checked, but there used to be Yahoo Groups with many, many engine designs available free from old Model Engineer magazines. There were plans for several V8s' for example.

          Errol,
          Wise choice on simple the first time around, here would be another good choice if 4 stroke was not absolutely necessary.
          It is relatively simple, introduces students to metric and enough difficulty that they will be very excited to hear it run.
          Plans are free, I donated a small amount in appreciation although it is not expected.

            You might want to check with:

            Dale Detrich

            Attica, Ohio 44807
            419-426-5142

            ISTR that Dale has released some of his plans at no cost, but, he expects people to carry through and take them to completion.

            Send me a PM and in the meantime I'll be doing some more looking for more plans.

            Best regards,

              Thanks to all for the suggestions.

              One of my students has started on the Webster engine, he seems a pretty serious kid so we will see how it goes.

              Thanks again,

              Errol
