Stirling Engine resources

I am a machinist by trade but still very interested in science. I many ways both share some common cores. But to my question.
To no avail I have not found any technical resource in regards to stirling engines. I know how and why they work. That is not the problem. I wish to design and build one from scratch without using someone elses plans.
I also want it to be effecient (just because I don't want it to be half ass, not to attempt to get off the grid.) I also want to go through all the calculations to make my design.
Does anyone know of any resources with formulas, calculations, etc. on stirling engines such as timing, displacement of cylinders, working gas comparisons and so on?
Also want it free...or cheap. I have found books that sound promising but some are out of print so are expensive. On a limited budget because of some legal problems compounded by health problems...

I've been out of high school for a couple years and forgotten a lot of the mathematics that I learned, but I want to practice them again. Can anyone recommend some books that can teach me what is covered in algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, and precalc/calculous 1? I need a refresher on most of those concepts
