The device is an engine in which small quantitites of water are turned into
steam by the use of a magnetron (as found in microwave ovens).
Interested parties may wish to try this test: Place a few drops of water into
a clear plastic 35mm film roll holder and put the cap on the film roll holder.
Place in a microwave oven and turn the oven on. The 'pop' is the result of
the water turning suddenly into steam.
The engine I have invented is far more efficient than any other steam engine
because the efficiency of the magnetron in turning water into steam. In fact,
the water droplet 'explodes' very much like air/gasoline explodes in a
conventional internal combustion engine.
This engine was first tested in 1992. I am however unable to invest the
required capital to produce a more sophisticated model and therefore unable to
patent it. Even though I may not be able to profit from this technology, it
is too good to be kept to myself and I would like to spread it around so that
others may be able to use it.
1. The magnetron fits into the spark plug hole.
2. The distributor points are modified so that the contact is closed when the
piston is at the top dead center and this contact is used to activate the
aircraft strobe mechanism.
3. The high voltage from the strobe is connected to directly fire the
magnetron which in turn produces steam which moves the piston.
4. The engine turns the alternator which keeps the battery charged, which
supplies the electrical power for the magnetron.
