High Speed Twin Flywheel Stirling Engine 1st Start

I just got this high speed twin flywheel Stirling Engine and I had to get it running straight away. As with my other engine, it's lubricated with an ordinary 'lead' pencil and it run's great.
The burner is running on methylated spirits. Not sure of the RPM but I have an optical tacho on order so I can check it. It does seem to be doing a lot of rev's.
It vibrates around quite a lot, but the rev's pick up noticably when it's held nice and steady.
Seems to have a bit of power, so I've just got to work out what to hook it up to.
