This is a better quality version of a video I posted earlier this year (2008). The video quality of the earlier posting was so bad, I wanted to try a better version.
This is an antique hit and miss engine running at the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum in Vista, CA during the June 1996 or 1997 festival. According to a museum local who responded to my request for information, it is a 20 horsepower Fairbanks-Morse that they affectionately call "Old Dirty". It served in the California oilfields for its working life, running two enormous lathes off a ground-mounted jackshaft. He said it was filthy when it was first brought to the museum, and it hasn't gotten any cleaner.
