Default Got It Running (Buckeye Ditcher Engine)

After having new bearings poured and the ignition system figured out (modified) we finally got this one to breathe on the weekend. These old engines were made so that you cranked it backwards to make it backfire then catch it on the bounce to make it run. Now, we have the rest of the machine to worry about

That machine looks scary! Is there 2 engines to be mounted on it?

The one we have is on tracks too, but we put wheels under to ease in moving around. There is only one motor on it but the other motor in the background is one a few years older
