This engine is a Philip Duclos six cycle hit and miss engine, built from stock materials — no castings. Phil Duclos was a designer of sometimes different or oddball engines. His blueprints were published in Popular Science magazines in the 1950′s and 1960′s, and people have been building his engines ever since. This engine is a more recent build, done by a highly skilled machinist. The flywheels measure 4 1/2 in diameter. The workmanship is to a very high standard. Unfortunately, the builder was never able to get it to run. It is now time for me to move it along. I think the idea of an engine that only fires once every sixth stroke was that it would run cooler, or he just designed it to show that it could be done! The engine is made of aluminum, steel, and brass. A video of it running can be see here. Along with the engine, I will include detailed instructions to the new owner of how to start, operate, and maintain it. I have added the custom made visible fuel tank with a check valve for trouble-free operation. I can also include a wiring diagram and information for building your own ignition system. All that is really needed is a six or twelve volt coil and a matching battery. Be sure to tell your wife that this is just what you want for Christmas! It will arrive to the new owner well-packed and fully insured. Sales to continental United States only.
