"Tin Can Ross Yoke Stirling" Engine
by Joseph Simone
This engine used the same techniques as the "Tin Can Walking Beam Stirling" engine with a different twist. It incorporates a "Ross Yoke" to connect the displacer to the drive piston instead of the "Walking Beam".
The displacer and drive piston are oriented in the same direction using an 90 degree elbow on the power cylinder. They are about 3 inches apart.
The stroke is about 2.25 inches for both the displacer and the drive piston. It runs about 110 RPM, but needs a little more coaxing to get running.
