Ericsson Hot Air Engine

This is a 1/4 scale Ericsson Hot Air Engine. The engine stands about 19" tall with a bore of  2" diameter & 1" stroke.  The castings were purchased from Norbert Keeley Model Engine works. The current distributer is Myers Model Engine Works. 15929 Five Point Road. Perrysburg, Ohio 43551. (e-mail 878-6051 (They also have many other casting kits.)   I got the desire to build this engine when it was featured in Live Steam Magazine many years ago. This is a nice running engine and has many hours of running on propane gas. The original engine was coal fired and was located in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn Michigan.

An old add.
