This is the latest piece of cast iron to find its way into the garage. It is a Sattley hit n miss from 1926-27 rated at about 2 hp. Runs great and it is in its "work clothes" with some vintage repairs/mods and other than a good bath in some kero it will probably stay pretty much the way it is. It may pinch hit on my saw rig if I can't get a new pulley for the Briggs ZZ.

Same here. I enjoy going to the local shows and just watching and listening to them run. It is hard to believe many of them were designed and built by folks with a grade school education and without computers and CNC machines. And yet they are still running decades later.

Peter, That is a very nice hit and Miss engine you found there. It appears to not have any freeze cracks in the water tank. Way to go. :thumbs:

Nice engine. There are quite a few collectors up here. They are commonly referred to as Make and Break engines up here. Only 2 hp but I imagine that is at a much lower rpm then the typical 3600 of modern engines.

Brian there is one old weld repair on the head, probably an old freeze crack as it is a wet head. I will try and get a video of it this weekend, it is a nice sounding one, thanks for the great comments, you gotta love the old simple engines.

Please excuse the background view behind the Sattley, i didn't get it very far outside the garage door and the garage is full, ready for a good spring clean out and re organize......

She sounds cool Peter! Always wanted one, but never tried hard to find one. Now I have no room!
