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.

Great running unworn engine on original cart.
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.
This is my little hit & miss engine I restored. It's been my first one. I thought I'd take a break from restoring tractors and give one of these a shot. I would like to restore a large one someday soon
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!
Our 1.5hp Economy hit & miss engine running after having some work done on the ignition side of things.
