Is that the one I saw run?
Yes it is.
It had been sitting in the garage for 6 months
before you were here and started on the
first kick. I was impressed by that!
It is a simple design from a simpler day.
I'm quite positive that it would not pass current day EPA restrictions.
They were a loud and smoky 2 stroke hit and miss engine.
In the 1930's the farmer's wife found a way to fix that.
They would place the flexible metal exhaust hose from the engine in a
5 gallon bucket filled with water. It would greatly muffle the noise, and the
oil and smoke stayed in the water instead of drifting across the yard to
the clothes that were drying on the clothes line.
Would you believe they didn't have a CAD program to design that on!
They didn't even have an engineer there to tell them how to do it! ;)
