I have the Perrymobile Treatise.

Unfortunately, the PDF is about 3 MB, so I can't upload it directly. It took about an hour to break it into separate pages and create 3 sequential files --- though I think the resolution per page has suffered a bit. Anyhow, here's what they wrote (although, if you are like me, you'll be disappointed that there are no drawings or photos.)

Honestly, I think the design was pretty underwhelming.

Regards,

Ken

Filling the boiler / pressure vessel with an alcohol based liquid is like sitting next to dynamite that has a lit fuse. I guess you can’t call it a steam line but a pressure line to the engine and the exhaust line back through the condenser to the fuel tank. Any leak in the system or a crash would result in a real hot seat.

I have been in two Stanley’s that were not maintained very well. The under side of the wood bodies were saturated with oil. These cars suffered a burner backfire and igniter the under side if the cars, fortunately in both cases we were able to extinguish the fire, one with the help of another car traveling behind us.
Not for me.

Yes Steamboats and Modern Steam Launches 1961
Apparently they built thousands between 1885 and 1905
But when Ted was asked where any of them were today he said
I guess they all burned up and sank.
They used stove oil in the generator and were a three cylinder single acting engine.
Must have had a lot of blow by.
