Ok here's some hints.

This engine will run on anything combustible.
It has a ignition system that may use a spark plug or may not.
It can be either a 2cycle or 4cycle. So it has valves or can operate using ports.

Go back and look very closely at the beginning of the short video. You can see it's secret towards the top of the engine.

This is old technology but is still used today.

Sound great, doesn't it?

You might be thinking of the African Queen. Hepburn at the tiller and Bogie kicking the bejesus out or the boiler.

Anything I find remotely close is european and not commonly found in this country. The old John Deere's that ran on nearly anything combustible is the closest I find, but I don't recall them ever being able to convert from 4 to 2 cycle operation. I'm beginning to believe Dave is right...it's black magic.

This engine doesn't convert from 2 to 4cycle. It can be built either way.


I'll give you guys one last hint.


Blow torch.

Ok here's how a Hot Bulb or Crude Oil engine works.
The same as any other internal combustion engine works.
Compressed fuel and ignition. Bang! The piston goes down open valve or port exhaust gases goes out. Just like your lawn mower.

But the vaporizing of the fuel mixture is a little different. No carburetor.

In case you missed it , no carburetor.

What they do have is a "Bulb" or Chamber where the fuel first starts it's way to blow the piston down. Heat is applied to a chamber where fuel is introduced. The heating (remember that blowtorch) superheats the fuel and when its sucked into the cylinder by rotating the flywheel and moving the piston it's ready to be compressed on the next stroke. Since it has been pre-heated it explodes more rapidly and the engine runs.
Through the cycle fuel is drawn back into the bulb and because the engine is hot the whole process is started again.

These engines have been around since the start ot the automobile.

Here's some more info.
