Giant 2 stroke diesel that was originally used in a cotton gin. Story of this massive engine. This is a 110 HP 2 cycle 2 cylinder hot head oil engine manufactured by the Continental Gin Company in Birmingham, Alabama. this engine was located in Yuma, Arizona, and was in use at a cotton gin from 1924 to 1949. SInce this engine has no load on it, it is pretty quiet, but folks said when it was in service and under load, it could be heard for over 12 miles. It is started using compressed air and both of the hot heads are heated using torches, though I did not notice that when they started this.
