Tuesday Torque: 20 HP Fairbanks From 1906

The most interesting part of this video for me is seeing the operator hit the 'Match Starter.' which was used on some of the early big gas engines.  The writeup says they are using caps, and that would probably be more dependable than Ohio Blue Tips matches.  What a great save!


Many thanks to Merle for spotting this great vid!

Nice video, I hadn't seen the cap spark ignitor before.
And good work by the videographer.
