Converting present gasoline engines to work on steam, using a combination of either electrical or propane to make the steam.

Engines presently are 4 cycle. To convert to steam would require replacing the 4 cycle camshaft to 2 cycle. Then removing the carburator and intake and exhaust manafolds, and using them to connect the steam to the intake manafold and the radiator to the exaust manafold, where the steam would be cooled to convert to water. The water, being cooled to just below the boiling point would then be connected to the steam generator to be fed to the intake manafold. The cars would need to have the gas tank replaced with a propane tank, and also be equipted with batteries enought to drive normal distance, being rechargeabe by charging overnight at home, but using propane to suplimite the batteries on long trips.

Of course this idea would also work on replacement motors. But on present motors, the alternators would also be replacing part of the energy to make the steam. If the motor industry switched to steam, the world would no longer depent on oir at $147 a barrol, and all the greedy ones running up the price of oil would see their high price bubble collepse! This idea is completely free! I wish you success in becoming very rich with you invention!

Reward: no reward wanted. Just would like to see it done.
