Thought that I would share with you the difference in sizes between the 10 & 20 hp Stanley throttle valve and the 30 HP Stanley throttle valve. How many have ever seen a 30 HP Stanley throttle valve? The castings are the same except that the outgoing steam line for the 30 HP Throttle Valve, its embossing for the tubing nut fitting is almost twice as big as the smaller valve's. I haven't had the 30 HP valve apart yet to see what the internal differences are.
"all the gas cars on the road have a 1kW+ alternator onboard, why can't we?"
This one was modified to generate at 10 MPH and put out 30 Amps , it is fitted to a Stanley condenser steam car.
Here are some photos of another conversion I did for a 30 HP 1910 Stanley rear-end, making the patterns for the casting was a little challenge, but it all worked out. I fitted it with O rings for the connections to the rear end hubs.
I used 18 gauge making my Stanley hood.
16 gauge is .0625
18 gauge is .0500
20 gauge is .0375
