The Florida Flywheelers have one just like the one in Harry's picture with a huge compressor cast on the back end.

Here's a 65hp owned by Carl Calvert. It was first used by the Ensign carburetor company, then used for pumping water and power generation in Borrego Springs, CA.

Starting is neat. A punk stick, or a cigarette will do, is inserted into a holder in the head.

If the picture doesn't show up, paste this into your browser and it will be the second engine from the top.

Here's another that's still in an oilfield. It runs a compressor. The pistons are now removed and power is supplied by an electric motor belted to the flywheel.

Again, if I goof up the picture, go here and scroll down about 2/3 of the way:
