VW Bug 2110cc Stroker Engine First Start, Initial Break In
This is the first start of my 2110cc engine that I built from scratch for my '57 oval rag top bug. It couldn't have gone any better, and sounds awesome! Here are the engine specs: - 150 HP - 82mm forged chromoly counter weighted and balanced crank - 5.4" forged chromoly I-beam rods - straight cut cam gears - Eagle street race cam - Mahle big bore pistons, 90.5mm - CNC wedge ported heads, 42mm x 37.5mm stainless valves - dual Weber 44mm IDF carbs, with velocity stacks and jetted for 5000 ft. elevation - match ported big beef manifolds - Ceramic 1 5/8" A1 sidewinder header Exhaust system, with heater boxes - lightened flywheel, 12 lbs. - stage 1 Kennedy pressure plate, with dual friction clutch - Magnaspark II electronic ignition distributor, 8.2 mm spark plug wires - full flow oiling system with external oil filter and sump, 6 qt. oil (stock is 2.75 qt) - 9:1 compression - all engine tin installed, working thermostat even! - light weight lifters - welded and balanced fan - Gene Berg breather - Bernie Bergmann linkage Normally one would have to remove the spark plugs and crank, crank, crank to build up oil pressure before starting. I used an external oil pump to prime the oil system, so I had instant oil pressure :)

Building the Horizontal Pop Can Stirling Engine
http://StirlingBuilder.com - Here are some photos and video from the building of the Horizontal Pop Can Stirling Engine. One of the first videos posted of this engine now has over 1 million views. The plans for this engine are in the book, "Eleven Stirling Engine Projects You Can Build" by Jim R. Larsen. The music playing in the background is an original blues recording also by Jim Larsen. This is an example of a classic horizontal Stirling engine design built with simple materials that are easy to find.
