2 stroke general purpose made in the 1930's similar to a Maytag engine to run washing machines and other small machines on the farm before electricity. Speed is governed by centrifugal force in the flywheel cutting off the ignition. Flexible hose carried the fumes away from the operator.
Vintage Briggs & Stratton WM Gas Engine
1937 Briggs & Stratton model WM engine. These were primarily used on
washing machines but were also used on mowers, etc. This one has a rope
start instead of the kick pedal and an optional air filter.
Vintage Briggs & Stratton WMB gas engine
1956 Briggs & Stratton model WMB. In1952 Maytag quit making their 2 stroke
washing machine engine and turned to Briggs to supply engines. This version
is designed to directly replace the Maytag twin cylinder, equipped with a
top mounting plate, gas tank bracket and belt guard on the shroud.

Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

World smallest V12 engine
Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
All credits to him.

I've had more than one request for this and since I had a few hours while
sitting on my butt waiting for my Dodge engine to show up I thought I would
fill the time by making this video for you. I have to say that after the
first edit I wasn't too happy and went back and reshot not once but twice
and even then I still felt I didn't cover it the way I liked. I should
really start scripting these videos, it would make my life soo much easier.
Anyway don't be too rough on me if you have differing opinions as I'm
willing to accept them in the comments if you are nice about it but if your
going to tear me a new one then please make a video of your own explaining
why as at least then we will be on the same playing field.

Johnson Iron Horse Motor AR472
Made in 1949, this engine came on a Bob-A-Lawn mower I got a while ago. It
has an Air-Vane type govener and a Suction type carburator.This engine is
rated at 3/4 HP @ 1900RPM. The bore is 2 1/8 X 1 3/4 stroke.
Just got this one running. It's very similar to a Maytag and uses the same
magneto as a model 82 Maytag. I believe it was built prior to 1934.
