Quite the process to get it started. Interesting what can get put together to use some old engines. That is the first I remember hearing a small one under a load like that, sounded good.

That is what I thought too, all the hit-n-miss I have seen were either free wheel, or operating a small pump. This is the first I seen one under load too..... impressive.

I wonder what that would get per gallon? LOL

Did you see the seat flopping back and forth at the end? Interesting piece of engineering, thanks for the Vid!

I think I'd want to size my Tshirt a couple sizes down if I'm going to be rubbing my belly on the pony motor drive like that...:D

VERY neat engine!!!

As long as it took to start the big engine, no wonder he needed the "pony" engine!
My wife says there just isn't anything guys won't do with their toys!

My wife says that is way better than just watching them spin, but didn't think I should put building something like that on my to do list :rolling:
Thanks for sharing the video :thumbs:

Got to give the guy credit for his ingeniuity! I can't imagine what kind of suspension would contro that kind of flywheel effect short of 8" of concrete. Watching that run made me think of the upright steam engine at Pioneer Village in Minden Neb. used to run the carosel. It also made me think of the famous Stanley Steamer engine that was as small as some of our GT engines.
