Briggs & Stratton engine turned into a flywheel engine!

This engine was featured on the cover of "Gas Engine Magazine". It was built by Jesse Cook in WV using old cast iron wheels as the flywheels. This Briggs & Stratton engine will turn so slow that it's unbelievable!

Hot Rod Maytag Twin Engine
This is my Hot Rod Maytag. It has been customized with stainless steel stacks, a beautiful custom stainless steel hanger, and Oak skid. It runs beautifully, especially when you consider that it's over 60 years old! These engines hung underneath Maytag Washers as an option for those folks who didnt have electricity. Hard to believe these days eh?

5 hp Economy hit & miss engine full power to low and slow
This is a 1920sh hit and miss engine attached to a modern generator. Plugged into the generator are a couple of heaters to provide a "load". The video starts with the engine at full load, 450 rpm, "hitting" all the time. The water is boiling in the hopper to cool the engine. As the load is removed it starts to "miss" so it won't go too fast. I then manually fire the ignition to get it to run real slow. It would run even slower without the generator attached!

Insanely Slow Idle on a Briggs and Stratton Engine
This engine is rated at 5.25 horsepower at full throttle, not 2 as the shroud says. I was trying to adjust the idle on my newly overhauled Briggs and Stratton Model 14, but it wouldn't stall. It just kept running, even though the throttle was completely closed. It was running really really slow so I had to make a video of it.
