Thanks for the demo, JB. That's cool.
If I ever get a hit n miss engine I'll get somebody to make a video.

This one has had a lot of play over the years, mine then Geoff's. There is something about the quiet gentle sounds of a steam engine happily running along that was lost when internal combustion engines replaced them as the prime movers. It is also no surprise to me that we now sit around wood fired cookers and watch the Q cook.

If I had that in my mowing tractor, I'd mow the whole neighborhood twice a week.

A thing of beauty. One hp per cubic inch has always been a respectable mark. Nine thousand rpm. The V8s I remember were wheezing around 5,000.
