    id just invent LED lighting strips and have the fricking ricer enthralled for years. dude would probably put them all over his horse.

      You're a fricking homosexual and isekai is dumb. Making an engine is impossible before the advent of precision machining, which requires measuring tools and units, etc.

        Then you just need to invent precision engineering. Metrology and the act of developing a set of reference surfaces and measurements from nothing is a fascinating subject and one I recommend everyone spends some time learning about. The biggest problem is likely going to be getting your iron chemistry consistent.

        You can sand cast one-offs and polish fit by hand with random dimensions with 12th century technology and create a functioning engine.

        nah. i could easily create an electric motor and a power source. that leads the way to lathes, mills, presses, etc. if i can communicate my ideas well enough to a team of the king's brightest men, i'd be mass producing honda civics within a decade.

          Where did you get the magnets strong enough to make it propel more than a barbie car?

            We were making magnets in the 12th century. It was poorly understood but we knew how to make fairly strong iron magnets

    Make a flintstones style chariat with other men being the manpower to get him around.
    Once that's built then think about some other way to do it

    I think I could bodge something together with a steam engine, brakes, steering, etc; but I'd be fricked when it came to designing a transmission.

      Just make it without one like a lawnmower or prop plane, I don't think it matters how fast it can go as long as it's similar to a horse

    It'd be pretty simple to make something that works. It'd be expensive and the metallurgy wouldn't be good enough to last but making a set of magnetos and spark plugs with pistons would be fairly easy but the machining to make the engine would be very difficult. It'd have to be splash oiled because the machining necessary for modern pressure oiling would be near impossible to make happen. It'd probably have to run off alcohol as fuel oils probably wouldn't be combustible enough and won't atomize without fuel injection

        no. I'm going to deliberately spread dogma and superstition to prevent the creation and distribution of mass produced works. words shall flow only from the tongues of men and the tips of quills.

    It would probably be easier and safer to make a hot gas engine (stirling or erickson cycle) rather than try to make a steam engine.

    >ITT: people think they can single-handedly jump metallurgy, machining, casting, stamping, and metrology ahead by 400 years
    It would be kinda shit, but with some chemistry and geological knowledge, the materials and precursor production for lead acid batteries, and ferrite magnets for electric motors was mostly known towards the end of the medieval period.

    unless you are able to smelt iron then the best you will be able to come up with is a pedal powered wagon/bike
