4 cylinder internal combustion engine Marc material kit

Product information "4 cylinder internal combustion engine Marc material kit"

The 4-cylinder in-line engine "Marc" is based on a historical model. The model was a four-cylinder in-line engine that was manufactured by the American company Holt at the beginning of the 20th century. This engine was mainly used in bulldozers and tracked tractors. This engine was available in 2, 4 and 6 cylinder versions. In 1925, the Holt company became the Caterpillar company, which still exists today. The engine does not consist of a cast engine block, as was usual later, but still has individual cylinders. This design is visually very appealing and makes it possible to offer the engine as a material kit.

  • Speed control via centrifugal governor
  • Carburetor with adjustable throttle valve
  • Cooling circuit with cooling water pump
  • Cooler with fan

With the 4-cylinder in-line engine "Marc" material kit, you can build a fully functional combustion engine yourself. The material kit contains all the necessary parts including the ignition. The engine has a functioning speed control using a centrifugal governor. A cooling water pump pumps water through a radiator, where the cooling water is cooled down by the fan and then flows back into the cylinder jacket. The engine is equipped with glow plugs. The glow plugs come with four Batteries operated. All components for producing the ignition are included (batteries are not included).

Dimensions of the model combustion engine 'Marc':

  • Height with wooden base: 310mm
  • Length: 450mm
  • Width: 180mm
  • Piston diameter: 23mm
  • Flywheel D.: 1x140mm 1x80mm
  • Speed speed: 200-1000 rpm
  • Weight: 9.1kg

The engine stands on two oak runners. The engine block is screwed together from milled parts. The base plate for the cylinders is made of steel, the bearing blocks that hold the crankshaft are made of aluminum. This unit is then provided with finished lasered and folded sheets. The cylinder sleeves are made of brass, the inside diameter no longer needs to be machined. The cylinder head and cylinder are included as material sections and must be machined on the lathe. The remaining components are mainly made of brass. The crankshaft is made from individual segments. No milling machine is required to produce the crankshaft either. It can be built entirely on the lathe. Further information can be found in our build report for the four-cylinder engine. The two flywheels are available in the quality we know. Both flywheels are made of cast steel.

The speed of this model is controlled via the carburettor. You can regulate the amount of air supplied. The carburettor is connected to a centrifugal governor via a linkage. This means you can set the engine to a desired speed, which is then maintained under load using the centrifugal governor.

All materials required to build the internal combustion engine "Marc" screws, nuts, springs and ignition parts are included in the kit. All milled parts are prepared so that they only need to be deburred and possibly drilled. To build the vertical stationary motor, a lathe, a drill and a gas burner for soft soldering are required. The following hand tools are also required (tap M2, M3, M4, M5, 6x0.75, M8x0.75, M10x1 die M2, M3, M5, M6x0.75, M8x0.75, M10x1 reamer 4H7 6H7, 8H7, 10H7) Files and a drill set are necessary. All you need to wire the ignition is a pair of side cutters, wire strippers and a soldering iron.

If you would like to find out in advance what steps you will take to make this internal combustion engine

have to be carried out, take a look at the construction report of the 4 cylinder combustion engine "Marc" material kit in our Bengs model building magazine. On this page you can see the illustrated report on how the stationary motor material set is processed.

The scope of delivery includes:

  • finished CNC milled milled parts
  • Raw material for the turned parts
  • Rough casting part for the flywheels
  • 2 runners made of oak wood
  • All required screws, nuts, gears and seals
  • Drawings of the internal combustion engine "Marc" (36 sheets) and construction instructions (8 sheets)
  • Glow plugs, cables, cable clamps, battery compartment for the ignition
  • Laser parts for stands and fairings

Freewheel bearing 10mm/14mm
Freewheel bearing / needle bearing HF1012 with an inner diameter of 10 mm, an outer diameter of 14 mm and a bearing height of 12 mm. A freewheel bearing only transmits the force in one direction of rotation, in the other direction of rotation, the bearing runs freely and it there is no power transmission.  We use these freewheel bearings to start our combustion engines. You build a holder for the cordless screwdriver and press the freewheel into the holder (note the direction of rotation).With the device you can bring the combustion engine to the speed of the cordless screwdriver when the engine starts and the As the speed increases, the freewheel slips over and the cordless screwdriver is protected.  The freewheel bearing has the following dimensions  inner diameter 10 mm outer diameter 14 mm Width 12 mm Weight 0.004 kg  Outer ring with knurling in the outer ring

Holder for mini boring bars
The mini drilling rods we offer fit into this holder for mini drilling rods. The holder is made of 12 mm square material and therefore also fits into steel holders on smaller lathes. The boring bars are inserted into the holder and fixed with an M4 hexagon socket screw. The holders also fit into the tool holders of very small lathes. Dimensions Holder for mini boring bars Height: 12mm Width: 12mm Length: 60mm

Battery baby battery 3500mAh for glow ignition
These NiMH batteries can be charged with almost any charger for NiMH batteries. Depending on charging and usage behavior, these can be recharged up to 1,000 times. These batteries are specifically for devices with above-average power consumption. We use these batteries to operate the glow ignition for our internal combustion engines. With 3500 mA, this battery has enough power to keep the glow plug operating for a long time. We use this battery to operate the glow ignition for our combustion engine Little Karl.Rated voltage: 1.2 V Rated capacity: 3500 mAh Charging current max.: 1750 mA

Mini drilling rods
These mini boring bars are ideal for internal turning. These internal turning tools are made entirely of carbide and have a cutting geometry that allows them to be plunged into the material without pre-drilling. This is high-quality industrial quality. The mini drilling rods are used. They were used on a CNC machine and will be replaced after a certain period of time. Only minor signs of wear can be seen. They are still very sharp and the remaining sharpness is completely sufficient for working on brass, aluminum or steel. In addition, the cutting edge can be re-sharpened relatively easily. A suitable tool holder for the boring bars can be found here. We also use these turning steels for internal turning in our workshop and are very impressed by the properties and possibilities. The following dimensions are available. Mini drilling rod 3.5x17  Minimum inner diameter: 3.5mm / Maximum immersion depth: 17mm / Total length: 30 mm Mini drilling rod 4.7x22  Minimum inner diameter: 4.7mm / Maximum immersion depth: 22mm / Total length: 35 mm Mini drilling rod 4.7x32  Minimum inner diameter: 4.7mm / Maximum immersion depth: 32mm / Total length: 45mm Mini drilling rod 5.6x22  Minimum inner diameter: 5.6mm / Maximum immersion depth: 22mm / Total length: 35mm Mini drilling rod 6.5x27  Minimum inner diameter: 6.5mm / Maximum immersion depth: 27mm / Total length: 40 mm
