Henry Ford's first engine  5/1/2009

These are models of Henry Ford's first engine. These engines are crude, but fun to run. As you can see they are made mostly of pipe fittings.One I am running on a model T coil and the other one on a coil and condenser. Henry Ford used his 32 volt house current for ignition on the first one he built.
