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.
1868 Otto Langen - Oldest running gas engine in the USA
1868 Otto Langen. Start up and operaton of the 1/2 HP Atmospheric
Noncompression engine. This is the oldest operating internal combustion
engine in the USA. Fueled by Hydrogen with open flame ignition. Video
taken at the August 2011 Rough & Tumble engine show.
The only older running internal combustion engine in the world is this one
- Also built by Otto & Langen in 1867 .
The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873,
Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen
(or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first
purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to
be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the
Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German
patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.
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.
Build a JET ENGINE using only a DRILL, GRINDER and duck tape (NO WELDING)
They are simple and you can make one even if you don,t have a workshop and
a range of tools, well thats at least what my plan is but will it work or
will it just turn out to be a waste of time......
See if it works here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EorMrpM6q9Q

and then what happenes when you use it to cook
enjoy and hope i can inspire someone.

Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
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.
