The Stirling cycle as you describe it is not reversible. The transfer of heat from thermal reservoirs along paths 4->1 and 2->3 is not a reversible process, because heat is being transferred between two objects at different temperatures. To reverse the process, you would need to spontaneously transfer heat from a colder to hotter reservoir, which violates ...
