Scale Gas Engines and Conveyer
Reader M. Moyers writes in, sending photos of some of his scale gas engines and a conveyor he built to make loading and unloading them for shows easier. We think the conveyor is a neat trick, and love the cam-stopper Callahan. “The flyballs disengage the camshaft when the engine is up to speed. The camshaft is timed to stop with the exhaust open. It’s a good runner,” Moyer writes.
As to the conveyor, he says, “I built the conveyor to make it easier to load and unload engines. I don’t need to get into the truck with each engine; the engines are the last to go on the display and the first to be removed when the show is over.”
