i'm building a small steam wagon, basically a steam pickup truck. Its approx ten feet long and four feet wide. I'm using a merryweather vertical boiler, a bedford rascal gearbox and back axle and a purpose built chassis and front axle.
My problem is that I'm not certain what engine I can use and where to get one?
What would be powerful enough to cruise at 20 to 30mph and keep going up hill without emptying the boiler to quickly? The working preassure of the boiler is only 100 psi, but I itend on superheating it.
Can anyoune give me any tips?
