V (Vee) Twin Cylinder "Marine" Model Steam Engine. Fully Machined Kit in Brass, Bronze & Steel. For additional information and our best prices please feel free to call Simon at Chiltern Model Steam on 07941800103. The V (vee) twin cylinder "marine" engine is a simple design, yet retains the basic mechanics of engines which powered boats, farm equipment, and workshops in the nineteenth century. NOTE: Pictures are of the assembled model (unpainted/unpolished). This listing is for the kit of parts. The V engine layout has two double acting cylinders, eccentric driven slide valves and the brass flywheel offers smooth running and is capable of powering a range of accessories, in a variety of roles. The engine also includes double split bronze pedestal bearings for the crank shaft, tube sliders and a substantial cast base and side supports. The V layout is more compact (lower and shorter) than our other twin cylinder marine engine, see drawing. On the crank shaft, the cranks for each cylinder are offset by 90° which means the engine will self-start in any position. The engine will run in reverse by applying the steam (or air) input to the outlet ports. Our Reversing/Throttle Valve (optional extra) will control the direction and speed of the engine in either direction, see picture. Pipework to connect Chests is an optional extra and can be made to meet specific requirements, see example picture. The kit consists of precision produced parts each carefully made and checked to ensure ease of assembly and reliability in service. The cylinder assembly and piston are manufactured from brass and the piston shaft, connecting rod, column screws and valve from stainless steel so are not susceptible to the corrosion.
To power the engine with live steam, connect it to one of our Model Steam Boilers. Call Simon at Chiltern Model Steam on 07941800103.
