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.
Economics 101 -- "How the Economic Machine Works." Created by Ray Dalio this simple but not simplistic and easy to follow 30 minute, animated video answers the question, "How does the economy really work?" Based on Dalio's practical template for understanding the economy, which he developed over the course of his career, the video breaks down economic concepts like credit, deficits and interest rates, allowing viewers to learn the basic driving forces behind the economy, how economic policies work and why economic cycles occur.

Please visit http://www.ministeam.com for a large selection of working model engines. This model Economy Hit and Miss engine is a great size for a desk top model. It has a flywheel that is only 4.5 inches in diameter. The engine runs on white gas camping fuel. It uses 2 AA rechargeable batteries and a buzz coil to produce the spark needed for combustion.
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!
Here is a little hit and miss engine starting and running. It is running a bit fast; I could slow it down by changing the governor spring.
I just purchased this engine today from a good hearted person. Hard starting needs magneto work but a good find. THANKS AL!!
Great running unworn engine on original cart.
