Good running throttlers

Hello all
Here are a couple you may not see too often in the US.
The first is an AV Capel and the second is a Crossley PHX 1060 which is a compressor engine for starting the big air start Crossley's. You can hear the air coming out of the compressor side of things.
If you want more of the engines that are not common in the US then let me know. I have a few more of our Australian and English engines on file.

If you know anything about the Capel I would really like to hear from you. The Capel is one of the quietest running engines I've heard. She is quieter then the video suggests.

Cheers Scott

Patrick, do you have the timing retarded on the Cooper?

Doesn't have any kick to it when it fires.

Very nice.

The timing is set correctly. If I load it up it barks very well. The original muffler takes a massive amount of noise away as well. If I take it off it makes a mighty noise.

Here are a some. The first is The Mighty Hoyt-Clagwell with the Fairbanks-Morse ZC-52 engine.

Another is The Homebrew Engine, the first small engine I designed and built.

Then, there is my favorite. Though technically not a throttler, here is The Homebrew Hvid.

(i need to make another video of this engine. After further development, it starts on the crank easily in warm weather and runs quieter and better now.)

great video's! Ant tips on getting my 6hp FMZ to hit every time?

It will run slow or fast easy enough but it misses 3-4 times then fires a couple times etc... consequently it really barks. When it occasionally bumps right along with out missing it is nice and quiet. I have put new valves in it so far and tried different springs on the compensating valve but it runs the same.
