Hi Alain,
The engine came with the boat but did not work, stripped and rebuilt now runs very well and will tickover on 5psi steam pressure it is also very powerfull, bore 1/2" stroke 3/4" and should
be just right for scale speed of the Drifter which was 9 knots
running at 25 to 30psi. The design is quite easy to build with no
castings needed I have not been able to find any plans for this
engine but I believe its a copy of Edgar Westbury single cylinder oscillator doubled as a twin

Mick
