That's an interesting one. I wonder how a real hit and miss works in a tractor. Do they run smooth? Do they jump and lurch? How do you throttle it?


Hit and miss engines do run smooth under a load.  Those big flywheels keep them going.


The real early prairie farm tractors were all hit and miss powered.
