antique tractors

Hit-and-miss engines are stationary, cast-iron combustion engines with belts, gears, and flywheels, used in the early 20th century for a variety of on-the-farm jobs from washing laundry to sawing wood. They emit a distinct whirring-whooshing-popping sound as the engine “hits” and “misses” to maintain a constant speed.
