Default 1929 Briggs Fh and 46 Maytag Twin

Heres a short video I made of me running the two engines that I restored for my last two years in 4H. Had a blast redoing both of them.

very good job. is your kickstarter on your twin the way you got it, or has it been modified. if its by chance orginal it could be rare as they did start out making them like that, but your flywheel serial number does not support that

Thats the pedal thats been on there since I got ahold of it. I always kinda thought it took a different pedal but knew they did have different configurations so I left it.

Why don't you open the air adjustment to stop it instead of closing it?

Hburk when I run it now I do open it to shut it off. That was actually the first time I'd run it.

The serial number off the Flywheel is 1001892 and most of the parts that have a part number on them begin with S and not X
