Why do you say that? Do you think it's smaller than a 40?

That would be correct, I've seen a 100hp hit and miss, that was the size of a Waterloo Boy tractor for comparison, those engines are slow speed.

Cool old engine. I'm not sure it is hit&miss. My father tended an oil lease in south east Kansas when I was about 5. It had one centrally located engine with a vertical shaft that ran off of the waste natural gases straight out of the well. Had reach rods laying out across the fields to 6 wells. Could run any one of the 6 wells. I was to young at the time so I don't know if it could run more than 1 at a time. In those days with little government regulation they just did what worked. Don

a hit miss that size with lite flywheel's would be 10-15hp.for that time period and it's not a hit miss, the governor on a hit miss controls valve timing, the governor here controls intake flow rate,called valve-less in it's day this is a two stroke, because it hit's every stroke it runs at half the RPMs of a hit miss and was the reasoning, mass to hp.is close for both types

   After a quick google search I discovered that yes this is not really hit and miss but it is most likely around 40hp, with the older hit-miss engines they were basically what jimmyg said but with this engine being Valve-less  (throttle governed) the engine rpms can be greatly increased and by the tag this one runs 250 rpm wich greatly increases the HP output.

    Still a really cool engine and something I would love to have just to say I have it.

It is a 40hp.,unlike other engines of the day they did not get bigger with HP.the 20,30,40 and 50hp. are all the same size, flywheel and all with one line of engine's being identical except for bore and stroke from 10 to 40hp.(shared bed plate) the pic below is a 1927 25hp.that belongs to a flyweeling friend, not the same make but more typical for hp.size,The bovaird and sayfang videos I just watched on YouTube show a backwards compression start that was pretty cool

Are these larger engines ( any type )  bringing that kind of money ?   I've noticed there are less coming to our local show . I give credit to those that go through the work to bring them for us to enjoy .

. The price of old iron is going down and that go's double for the big engines, not so long ago in a land now far away that price here would have been correct, but the steam engine crowd is being forced out of existence and they are the bringers of all things big, many good reasons to quit the big show and no good reasons to pick up the sport is what you're seeing, the price of boiler inspection, testing and certification is up, you have to be certified to operate and that's up, big truck and trailer plates, insurance and road tax,up up up,maintenance cost up not to mention 14-18 special big tire's that have to pass inspection, cost of c.d.l. and testing up, ect.ect.enjoy this dying breed wile you can, I like you am already missing them
