TBs TechTips 015 - Instructions for Nicjasno's LPEs

Maybe you remember an old TBs post here, where the Alex Zorko (nicjasno.com) LEGO Pneumatic Engine (LPE) 'Inline 4', was mentioned and shown.

For those interested to try it, see the 'Inline 4' instructions and also the instructions for two other Double Cam (SOHC) V8 LPE versions below.


Download here the instructions for the 1220 rpm 'Inline 4' motor, which Alex stretched up to an incredible 1420 rpms on his 4 cylinder studless version.

I wonder how many PSIs, did he used to feed the motor while running at these speeds.

This one ran at 960 rpms.
