• 1919 5HP Hit and Miss Economy engine Sold by Sears and Roebuck

    1919 5HP Hit and Miss Economy engine Sold by Sears and Roebuck and made by Hercules and owned by my good friend L.D. Johnson. This motor was stuck and not running when Mr Johnson got it and he had to knock the piston out with a timber and refurbish it to make it run. Notice that a model T Ford coil is being used for the spark. It is so neat to see a 94 year old engine come to life and start running again.

  • Bump Starting a 12 HP Economy Hit and Miss Engine

    Big engines can be difficult to start because of the need to pull the engine throughout compression. On method used to make starting easier is to reverse bump the engine against compression. The engine will back fire and send the flywheels the correct direction and start.

  • 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!
