My first built hot-bulb engine.
Four-stroke lamp-start hot-bulb engine. Built 1988.
My first built hot-bulb engine was a so called "four poster" engine, with fly-ball governor controlled injection pump and a water-cooled injector.
Fly-ball governor controlled injection-pump. Water-cooled injector.
The engine needs a continuos flame from the blow-lamp to run.
