1906 Olds Gas Engine

This is my early Olds gas engine. It has a reproduction Seager Olds decal on it but it pre dates the Seager take-over.

Sopwith Camel 'planes run exactly this way, just faster. On the non-firing
strokes, does it allow unburned fuel/air to go straight through or does it
just suck in a stroke full of plain air?

Exactly what he said. It's just like a rev-limiter on an automobile.

Great video! Does this engine have so called "low voltage ignition"? I
don't quite understand how this ignition system works. Is there anywhere in
the web where this is explained? Thanks

Under load it would fire evenly?

Author ztwntyn8 ( ago)
That explains the inconsistancy of the bang. Thanks!

Author ztwntyn8 ( ago)
what is the mechanism doing that makes the bang every so often? cool
engine, what is it used for?

Author applecounty ( ago)
The Somerset Levels here in the UK used to have dozens of this type of
engine spluttering and banging away. Excellent pice of kit, I can't wait
until the Summer and the start of the Steam rally season. Thanks for
posting this.
