Roger Richard’s protégé, Sky Huddleston, presented at the 2021 ESTC on the Bourke Engine and is the most comprehensive and authoritative presentation ever given on this technology.
Here is a relatively recent video demonstration by Roger Richard that you can watch here. Roger’s description is:
“I played with a trial video editor and got some interesting results. Sorry about the watermark, but I couldn’t wait to post it and used it anyway. The video is an overlay of two Bourke 30″ engines running about a second apart. Also, this run is with 87 octane pump gas . A slight modification of the original design made this possible. True homogenous charge compression ignition, HCCI. Russ Bourke was right and still is.”

The Bourke Engine not only destroys Carnot’s Law, it’s just plain amazing! Roger Richard is the world’s leading authority on the subject, has multiple, original motors built by Russell Bourke himself, and has even built one that has a thermal efficiency of about 85%.
This ORIGNIAL Bourke engine will be displayed at the 10th Annual Energy Science & Technology Conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho from July 7 to 11, 2021. Also, Sky Huddleston of the RocketHeater.com will be coming to the conference as well and he is bringing his original Bourke Engine as well! Two real Bourke Engines at the same conference? This probably has never happened!

Although it won’t be running, Roger is bringing a 30 Cubic Inch Bourke engine (see pics below) so everyone can see it up close. He may even disassemble it so you can see how the inside is put together. This is by far, the most important internal combustion engine ever created. Technically, it is a detonation engine with some interesting properties and it runs so cool, you can put your hand over he exhaust port while it is running. Roger has demonstrated that many times over the years.
This is a very rare opportunity to learn from the most knowledgeable expert on the subject, see two real Bourke Engines and pick Roger’s brain on just about anything you’d ever want to know about it.
This public domain image shows the operating principle but there is a lot more than meets the eye and Roger has taken it beyond what even Bourke himself could do.
Scotch Yoke Solenoid Motor by Aaron Murakami, Bob Teal’s Magnipulsion motor ran on a car battery and generated enough mechanical work to run a 20 ton conveyor belt for 6 months and the battery never went dead! His motor used solenoid coils that when charged, they would pull an iron rod into them and these rods turned a conventional crankshaft. When the coils were turned off, he recaptured almost all the electricity and used it over and over and over. Despite the poor mechanical performance of the crankshaft that is just like the ones in most of our automobiles, he still had those profound results. When I first learned about the Bourke Engine about 8 years ago, the most efficient gasoline engine ever developed, the reciprocating motion was turned into rotary motion with a very intriguing mechanism called a Scotch Yoke. While that yoke is not new and was not even new when Russell Bourke used it in his opposing piston engine, it helped to take his efficiency to levels that are claimed to be impossible. Instantly, I knew that marrying the Scotch Yoke mechanism to a Bob Teal type electromagnetic motor would be the ultimate combination and this presentation shows the concepts, timing mechanism and a masterfully built Scotch Yoke with iron rods going into solenoid coils with only a couple thousand’s inch gap! The concept of putting these two things together is mine, Peter Lindemann who has studied the Bob Teal technology for years and is actually the inspiration for his variable reluctance motor that Eric Dollard tested at 108% back in the 1980’s came up with the timing mechanism, Ken Flanigan did all of the machining and Graham Gunderson is helping to design the driver circuit. For any of you that have wanted to see a collaboration between some of the presenters at the conference, this is it. What is presented is the history of the Bob Teal motor and how it relates to this project, where we are at with the project at the moment and where we’re going with it. Proceeds from this presentation will go to funding the rest of the project so we can open source it all and bring it straight to the people! Make sure to get a copy so you can learn about the most efficient way to turn reciprocating motion into rotary, which can pump water, drive you around town (scaled up) or other mechanical applications with the minimum amount of electricity.
