man...i took 53 pics.
this was the coolest thing.... called a "hit & miss". this thing fired once every 16 revolutions! the crankshaft & most of the piston was exposed...it had an external oiler to lube the moving parts. there was a moving counterweight on one of the the flywheels...when centrifugal force let up...it allowed the engine to fire. &&& the exhaust valve remained open, until time to fire again. so those 16 revos free-wheeled like crazy.
this was a blast!!

Wow Dave, that engine is almost totaly exposed. The one that caught my eye was the horizontally opposed twin cylinder washing machine. It looks like a mini BMW. Too cool!

I think there's still some of those washing machines around here. I know some ladies that live a bit remote that have mentioned using them. I'd bet that when they finally got electricity, they didn't haul the old machine off. I may have to look into it. (A good excuse to go visitin'.)
