5002M Echuca Single Cylinder Vertical Steam Engine Non Reversing Marine F/W
5002M Echuca Single Cylinder Vertical Steam Engine - Non Reversing - Marine Flywheel. The marine flywheel has the same flywheel effect as the the spoked flywheel but, with a smaller diameter requires less vertical space for installation. The Echuca is typical of many vertical stationary single cylinder steam engines used in the 19th and early 20th century in Australia. Engines of this type were use in the gold fields, saw mills and small factories. By adding Stephenson's reversing linkage the Echuca can become a marine steam engine capable of powering model steamboats up to 1.5 (3'6) long on a boiler pressure of about 40 psi. When choosing an engine for your project please note that this engine is not necessarily self starting. If this is a requirement a twin cylinder engine should be used. A reversing linkage upgrade is available from Miniature Steam Models. An Echuca casting set (available direct) is an ideal project for the novice or more experienced model engineer. It can be machined on a small (3 ½ inch) hobby lathe. 3/4" Bore x 3/4" Stroke, and a 1-7/8 flywheel diameter. Weight 1000 gms (when finished).
