Jim Dandy Fire Eater #1

The Fire Eater #1

The Fire Eater #1 is a very large (six inch piston and stroke) fire breathing engine. This differs from the Stirling cycle in that new hot gas is inhaled from an active flame for each stroke. The gas is drawn through a large slide valve and then condensed to produce power. This engine is large, noisy and a lot of fun. It uses a unique link mechanism, water cooling and a pendulum for counterbalance.
