I have been tinkering with a steam engine made from an opposed twin kohler with a 20 inch heavy flywheel. I’m using an old portable air tank for the pressure vessel and directly plumbed into the sparkplug holes. runs strong at 40psi and runs a single wire delco alternator up to 35amps 12 volt charge power for batteries. Although crude stages of building now I know that I can charge batteries in the event that diesel fuel is not available. As far as efficancy goes i live in the woods and the trees offer plenty of branches to collect and burn for free.
