i am putting together a generating system and i need to get some
accurate specs. i need boreXstroke=tourque horse power out put
i anticipate needing a multi piston system to acquire the torque i need

with a very hot heat supply what are my temp differences for optimum
steady rotation and can a second cylinder operate on the exhaust heat?

You failed to indicate the required output, temperatures available, etc. If your heat supply were boiling water at 100 deg. C it would be woefully inadequate for a Stirling engine which runs at red heat on the hot side and as cold as possible on the cold side.

Sorry to have to inform you that EVEN IF you had the specifications as to output HP, Voltage, Amps. etc. you CANNOT find anyone to contract to built the unit at any but a Totally Unreasonable Cost that you or your client could afford.

The Knoxville New Sentinel in today's paper 01/23/09 has an article on an test installation of PV Panels at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to supply "Green" power for a portion of one of the buildings near by. This might be an alternative solution to you requirements. for video, photo gallery, and blog: Atomic City Underground for more information.
