Default How S-l-o-w can you run Your Throttle Governed Engine ?

I normally kill the 6hp Throttle Governed Fairbanks Morse engine on my 1/2 scale OTTO tractor by holding the exhaust open like the latch-out mechanism on a hit & miss engine does but will sometimes just shut down the throttle and kill it as it tends to shut down far enough to shut off the fuel supply.

When I had it running in at our Threshing Show earlier this month I went to kill it with the throttle and it just refused to die so I fired up the camera to film it chugging away at low speed.

If I counted right while timing it, it looks like 30 revolutions in 22 seconds or about 82rpm give or take a few as the speed did vary a little.

I just keep coming back again and again like the Evil Twin of a Bad Penny !
