Is this the car where the follower travels in a groove that is cut around the flywheel in a sort of cross-over arrangement?
 
If so I am sure I have seen a description of how someone made one in an old ME.
 
Let me know and I will have a look for you.

Colin,
 
It may be worth talking to The Engineer's Emporium who list a De Dion 1903 engine kit
 
(no connection, just came across their site whilst folowing a link in another thread on this site this morning!)
