The Hornsby-Akroyd engine and later developments in the heavy oil engine Author: Thomas Hornbuckle. This month's article is about a historically important antique gas engine that is little known in America - the Hornsby-Akroyd vaporizing oil engine.

It uses heavy oil fuels and was significant in the development of today's Diesel, but has lots of peculiarities of its own. Richard Hornsby & Sons was an engine and machinery manufacturer in Grantham, Lincolnshire, England from until The company was a pioneer in the manufacture of the oil engine developed by Herbert Akroyd Stuart, which was marketed under the Hornsby-Akroyd name.

The company developed an early track system for vehicles, selling the patent to Holt & Co. (predecessor Industry: Agricultural engineering. The use of oil as a means of producing motive power was not a new idea at the time the Hornsby-Akroyd engine was developed. The concept was documented as early as by Street, but it was not until that Julis Hock built a workable petroleum engine.

Hock's was a non-compression engine, similar to that of Lenoir. How to Rebuild a Farmall Engine: Step-By-Step Instructions for an H, M,and More - Duration: Dan Gingell and Rachel Gingell Recommended for you Additional Physical Format: Online version: Collacott, Ralph A.

This 35 HP Hornsby-Akroyd is a hot bulb vaporizing oil engine built on Englishman Herbert Akroyd Stuart’s design.

It uses a vaporizer that is heated by an external torch until it is almost a dull, glowing color, and the heavy oil is injected into the hot vaporizer on the intake stroke. The heavy duty oil engine of to-day retains to a certain extent the advantage of Brayton's constant pressure engine, in as much as the heavy oil fuel is slow burning compared with petrol.

The advent of Dugald Clark's 2-stroke cycle engine, and of Charles Ackroyd Stuart's Surface Ignition engine.

The Development of Steam. People had experimented with steam-powered engines in the seventeenth century as a solution to power problems, and in Thomas Savery invented his ‘Machine for Raising Water by Fire’.Used in Cornish tin mines, this pumped water with a simple up and down motion that had only limited use and couldn’t be applied to machinery.

Break-In-Oils – As one engine builder told me, you need to seat the rings immediately and completely to maximize the engine’s ultimate power potential, whether it is a racing engine or a street engine.

We developed break-in oils to protect high performance valve trains, yet allow more accelerated ring and cylinder wear during break-in.detail later in this module. Another difference between a gasoline engine and a diesel engine is the manner in which engine speed is controlled.

In any engine, speed (or power) is a direct function of the amount of fuel burned in the cylinders. Gasoline engines are self-speed-limiting, due to the method the engine.R was one of a pair of British rigid airships completed in as part of a British government programme to develop civil airships capable of service on long-distance routes within the British was designed and built by an Air Ministry–appointed team and was effectively in competition with the government-funded but privately designed and built R
