Hit and Miss Engine     from planes by Philip Duclos

This hit and miss engine was built from planes by Philip Duclos I purchased at the 2007 Toledo NAMES show It is a vertical single 3/4 bore 1.125 stroke four cycle engine. A rotating tumbling block lifts exhaust valve and vacuum lifts the intake valve. A fun engine to build on a lathe-mill and fun to watch it putt along.
