Default Snow engine!

They had a little trouble getting this engine to run. It wanted to run away. If you notice the man standing on top he was standing on the govenor spring to finally get it to settle down.



More movies here.

Thanks Fred.
I need to see little ones like this until we get the rest of our 1100 HP one home and reassembled.

Fred,
Here is my Snow. All 34 lbs of it. It's a little smaller than yours, and was just about complete when this was taken. It was built from plans in the HSM magazine. Sorry, but no video at this time, but it does run very well.
Jeff
