Progress report on my HasBrouck #8 engine
Various parts awaiting assembly The things that look like brass aspirin go under the set screws on the eccentrics to protect the crank shaft.
Front, back and top views of the engine
Eccentrics. The bearings are aircraft style and cost about $220 for the two. Ray HasBrouck said that I could have done a redesign to use less costly bearings but I already had these two so it did not seem worth the bother.
The plate on the left is a fixture used to hold the condensate valves for soldering
End on view of the piston rods and cross heads. Left one is turned to fit the cross head guide and the right one is not yet turned.
The crank turns smoothly by hand and the piston rods go up and down. Progress!!
