    Hit & Miss & Throttle Governed Engines

    I know we have some who collect them...or at least like 'em

    Went after a motorcycle and found these.

    A Heavy Six Sandwich
    A 3 hp Fairbanks Morris ZC
    A Fairbanks Oil Field engine
    As well as a 1940s feed mill

    And I bought the bike as well....a 2002 Bonneville with 900 miles

    Are they all runners? If so, when can we expect to see the videos?

    You lucky Dog !!

    I always liked Hit & Miss and searched for years for something reasonable. Always too expensive for me, then my interests changed. But I go out of my way to look and watch them run.

    Good luck with them. Get them running and have fun.

    None of them are stuck so should all run. The previous owner, 86 year old Alzheimer's patient, used them up till just a few years ago. The 6hp ran a 20" grist mill, the 4hp Fairbanks oil engine ran a small feed mill and the 3hp ran a generator for late night work.

    It probably wont be hard to get them running

    The mechanic that used to work on our VW Bugs had one in his shop; he had it running one day I was there. What amazed me was the carburetor. It was a very simple device; side draft intake, and the interior was open. The aspiration consisted of a little thumb screw valve that when open, allowed a drip of gas onto a flat anvil at the bottom of the intake, and that was it.

    I can remember when we lived in Osage County back in the 40's; I would lay in bed at night and hear those old engines with their hit-and-miss rhythm pumping away in the nearby oilfields.
