Balanced Engine!!

Recommended Posts


I understand this is not yours, and appreciate the post-

I would tell the owner:

"Strap a wooden box to the chassis,

and drive it just as it is-

Your local Cruise Night folks will never forget their excitement,

nor will you !"


A well balanced engine is a pleasure to observe, as well as to drive.

Some years ago during a stop at Fort Drum, NY on a VMCCA Tour,

Wayne Funk, a Michigan friend of Winton fame,

balanced a nickel on the cylinder head of his running '24 Packard.

The crowds were amazed, and I'm sorry I cannot locate the video of that event.
