well a long time i finished making a simple pop pop boat out of recyclebles and since i know i have the abblity to craft.
i want to build my own stirling engine out of recyclables things or homemade items.

problem is. unlike the pop pop boat which had detailed/eazy instrutions. this one is kind of different and im having trouble trying to find the instrutions or understand how it works.

so can someone give me instrutions on how to make a stirling engine homemade?
or teach me about it?

I'm not sure what level of assistance you're asking for. Would this help?

Instructables has a mess of Stirling builds.

Make Magazine blog likewise has a stack of links: http://www.google.com/cse?cx=008032414425079535247%3Akplxrakvu20&q=stirling&sa=Search&siteurl=blog.makezine.com%2F

There's also the article from Make Magazine itself, on building a "Teacup Stirling Engine". (That was in #17, the "Lost Knowledge" or "Steampunk" issue.)

There is also a load of yahoo based groups that cater to sterling engines and other engine types as well. I have found a treasure trove of knowledge on a few of the groups. A simple search of their groups page should find you something to start at.
