Maier Mechanic V-Twin Cylinder Butane Gas Running Engine Model Incredible
A beautiful piece of engineering. This Maier V-Twin (two cylinder) butane gas engine is a fully operational, running engine. The engine is easy to start thanks to the piezo high voltage ignition system, two ignition jets and a large brass flywheel. Once running, the engine produces a typical V-engine exhaust sound. The two cylinder motion sequence is fully demonstrated due to the engine's open construction design. The counter-rotating parts pistons, crosshead and push rods result in intriguing and educational mechanical motion. Aluminum, brass and stainless steel construction. RPM (engine speed) is controlled via a valve on the butane tank. Engine capacity: 3cc (1.5cc per cylinder).
Has drive pulley that could be used to operate typical model steam engine accessories. Model was displayed for a short period in an enclosed, climate-controlled display case and run only a few times. I have owned the engine from new.
The engine comes with instructions. First 6 photos are from Maier, the last 6 are of the actual listing motor.
Requires periodic lubrication with a pen oiler. Model will be carefully packed for transit. Please message with any questions.
