Hi from Tel Aviv

This is a discussion on Hi from Tel Aviv within the New Member Introductions forums, part of the Introduction and Welcome category; I think there is a loophole for hookers in the Holy Land. They are on a "Mission" from god, or something....

    Sure most of us recall the Sunday School story of one of the several Old Testaments heroines of the faith named Rahab the Harlot. Some of the TV preachers say she wasnt really a Harlot but wove linen for a living..at any rate she wound up being an ancestor to Jesus the Messiah. Thats special right there.

I have 2 aces on my team - a prominent steam car specialist and an automotive engineer with experience in commercial steam car projects), so I hope to be moving forward to prototyping soon.

    Welcome,

    I'm glad you are able to confer with someone that has real world steam car experience.

    As someone that grew up with 20+ full-size working stream engines (singles, doubles, expansion engines) and a Stanley Steam car (I still have multiple full-size steam engines and a small $15k steam locomotive), I understand the allure of steam.

    However, I wouldn't take it to the nth degree (like you want to) and forego brakes and rubber tires (and contrary to what you typed, do you need lubricate the engine and linkages, etc.

    If you do move forward with your idea, use a water-tube boiler, not a fire-tube, and make sure you have it pressure tested and certified.

    Finally, please post pics of your progress

    Thanks @SierraGhost !

    Not only have you changed the subject from hookers, you changed it to my favorite subject

    I'm super jealous of that inventory! Are you active at SACA?

    Regarding your technical comments:

    Actually Cyclone Engineering have patented an efficient, durable automotive steam engine which is water-lubricated, and luckily for me their patent has recently expired (they have long ago went out of business, and I'm afraid all the online resources have gone down with them, so I can't link to any white-paper). So lubrication for the engine will be done using only water (how amazing is that?!).

    Linkages are kept to a minimum (since there is no transmission) and using a clever (not my idea, my engineer's) layout we will be able to use a specific type of bearings which are long known not to require grease at all.

    The brakes will be solely based on engine-breaking (I know it sounds unsuitable for conventional stop-go driving, but again - the secret is in the layout, which is our own design). The tires will not be non-rubber but non-pneumatic, and that's not nearly something new - we will use a more durable version of those already available (you can see a super cool example here) which will take a little bit from the ride comfort but our butts will have to excuse us...

    Regarding the water-tube boi... I can't write that, I promised my partner I will only call it "steam generator" since there is no actual boiling happening. So regarding the steam generator - we will use a re-circulating mono-tube + separator drum, a reliable and efficient system which requires practically no maintenance.

    There are obviously many, many more specifications which I won't go into now, but we are working on a CAD model at the moment and I will gladly share once there is anything coherent to show.

    Ok .… enough already, can we get back to the hookers?
    I will choose to enjoy the journey that God has prepared for me. Hidden Content

    Crazy stuff man...I just found out that The Israelis ......are just like the Nazi's!!!! I know, I know...Who would have guessed that...Not me... BUt since your rounding up Muslims, can yo at least force them to eat Bacon before you burn em...Gives it a good hickery flavor and hell, it's practically burns itself to perfection without added fuel other than the drippings. But you Jews got that no pork thing going to aint ya.

    Sad....Jews been fighting for right to exist all these centuries. without tasting bacon. I heard thats because we fear they attempt to rule the world if they actually tasted bacon and could eat it.

    any who...good luck burning the muslims. Let us know when your ready to pay for killing my Christ...we'll fight then.

    I don't mind the occasional ribbing, but accusing me of not liking bacon is going a bit too far

    Any day I can read about burning muslimes, is a good day! Thanks OSFG for the uplifting post!

    As far as the killing of our Earthly Christ, yes, the idiotic leaders of the Israelis at that time have to be blamed for their encouragement to do so,and the damn Romans for physically committing the crucifixion and giving in to their requests.

    But in a much deeper vein, since it was God's Ultimate Plan, isn't God responsible? And as Mrs Slippy reminds me, Jesus had a choice in this and He chose to die on the cross for our sins...so Jesus is equally responsible for allowing it to happen and also, aren't WE (the believers in Christ) also responsible for his Earthly death? All selfishly so that we could be forgiven of our sins and have eternal life at the foot of God?

    Just a thought to ponder, but I guess I more often choose to think about burning muslimes. Have I ever mentioned how much I don't care for muslimes?

    I actually like your concept and technically (as far as this old SF Guy can tell) it makes sense. seems to work off expansion of molecules vice the actual steam aspect associated with boiling...(correct me if I'm wrong) but as such it would produce a lower pressure (PSI) and therefore greatly reduce the torque available correct?

    If so, how does one compensate for inclines or grades? in level terrain this can be through gearing ratios, but weight to momentum factors necessitated greater PSI historically correct? Or did I miss an important aspect of it? like its for water travel only...or some such pertinent fact....
