'ALPHA' TWIN MARINE ENGINE

'ALPHA' TWIN MARINE ENGINE
We have designed a small and useful twin cylinder reversing oscillating Marine Engine specially for the Model Engineer with a small lathe and only a limited amount of time to spare.
The reversing mechanism is a simple slide valve on top of the centre block and does away with complicated valve gear.
It is very powerful for its size, but, like all oscillating engines, it does use a little more steam.
