1946 Maytag Gas Engine kick start
First start in who knows how long?, twin cylinder maytag multi-motor, model
72,, in original unrestored condition, the maytag twin is a very smooth
running machine, due to it's opposed piston and cylinder design, as a unit
they can't be beat, machine & engine that is, this engine came new on a
washing machine, as found it appered to be in very good condition but to be
later discovered, that was not the case, gettin' past the shop
worn,rusty,bad paint,parts missing, it needs a lot of tender loving care
(TLC), I guess you get it by now, I do like these old antique maytags, kick
start, two cycle, air cooled, 16-1 gas oil mixture, smokey, smelly, oily,
and only 5/8 HP, it don't get much better, oh yes the engine is equipped
with an eisemann model 72-DA flywheel assembly and magneto backing plate,
these are very good magnetos if kept clean and in good repair, on this
engine the the ignition coil was a little weak, so I closed the gaps on the
sparkplugs .020 & points .012, and remember boths plugs fire at the same
time, the crankcase bushings are worn out so I close the air control cap on
the air intake tube to make up for the extra air, leave a comment,

1916 1hp IHC Mogul Engine
Brought this one home today. Found it right around the corner from where I
live. The magneto needs to be re-bushed, so I got it running on a battery
and coil. Seems to run pretty good considering it last ran about 35 years
ago. Some more tinkering, some cleaning, and it will be a very nice engne.
1905 Reid 15hp oilfield stationary engine
This is a 1905 Reid 15 hp engine that my Dad just rebuilt/restored. The
cart it sits on, He built himself from pictures. The rear wheels are made
from 30" pipe, and the fronts are 16". The frame is some left over I beam
and the steering is his own design.
The fuel is propane with a needle valve to regulate flow. The ignition is
some old military coil with a sparkplug screwed into an adapter in the head
that he made and a micro switch mounted on the base with a trigger mounted
to a disc bolted to the crank. The flyball gov. isn't connected yet, but it
will be soon to help control rpm.

MARS 5HP DIESEL ENGINE - 1st Start Up in 50 Years!
Watch as an early 1940's MARS Diesel engine is fired up after 50 years.
Originally acquired from a cane farmer in Nambour, Queensland, Australia in
the 1970's, this engine sat in careful custody with another three owners
before finally retiring with me.
MARS engines were made by the MARS Machine Tool Manufacturing Company in
Brisbane, Australia and were preceded by the horizontal and vertical Rapson
and Dutton engine, made by the same company under the Rapson and Dutton
MARS engines are not Lister clones. Mars engines are bigger, heavier and
more robust than Lister engines. When you listen to a Lister and then to a
MARS you will agree. This engine has a 3 " diameter crankshaft and not one
component is interchangeable with a Lister.
MARS engines were commonly used in industrial situations such as factories
to power line shafts which powered a number of machines, a task Lister
engines had some trouble with apparently with their crankshafts twisting
under the load on start up, and why this company made the Mars Diesel.
5 HP MARS engines were painted Maroon colour as standard from the factory
although there are variations of colour in existence. 8 HP engines were a
This engine has not run since the original owner sold it in the early
1970's. Apparently it had not run for some years before that. The second
owner sadly passed away before restoring it and it sat in a shed untouched
with the third owner.
Close friend and temporary fourth owner, Simon Devere, assisted actively in
the mechanical restoration when I purchased it and assisted in the first
start after its mechanical restoration. This man is a genius when it comes
to diesel engines and he has the nickname "The Lister Whisperer" for good
reason. Thanks "Slippery".
This engine appears to have not done much work judging by its internals.
Work to the engine includes new rings, liner/cylinder hone (the original
factory liner had indiscernible wear in it), new valve guides made to
original specs, new valves to original specs (original was bent and caused
damage to the guide) , new big end Babbit bearing, new conrod bush, very
light head machine to ensure true flatness, new internal oil pipes, new
head gasket, new oil gaskets, new high pressure line, new welch plugs in
the head and new oil pickup.
There are still remnants of the original factory maroon paint on it that
have survived the years of weathering out in the cane fields.
Cosmetic restoration is planned shortly to bring it back to its original
livery. It will be mated with a steel transporter to emphasise its
industrial heritage and will be rallied with pride.
Video of the finished engine on transporter will be posted when it is done.
Enjoy and please share if you like.
This is the only video of a Mars engine running to this date anywhere. Hope
to see more.

International 3 - 5 HP hit n miss LB Engine -SOLD 1/10
Good older restored engine by Fargo, ND and we can help with delivery in
the U.S. for $100-$300 depending on distance. Note: I have Hit n Miss in
the title since a lot of people put these in the same category since they
can be similar to a hit and miss in size and they way they generally
operate and sound as you'll see in the video, but these are thottle
governed. No repairs and flywheel is good. Has pulley or belt pully on
other side as you can see. 512-573-8359 or email Robert C. Moline or at
www.thetractorbarn.com - have 1 John Deere pump jack at $200. Thanks.
