    Default Updated cylinder count

    This has not been discussed in some time... For business, I have acquired a few additional gas power tools. Now, they say Americans use tons more energy than people in other countries. I can not figure this out. I looked in the garage and shed, and only found 18 different internal combustion gas or diesel engines. There were only 35 cylinders combined, for a measily 765HP. That is not that much!

    What do you have? I have:
    Truck 6 cylinder 235hp
    Car 6 cylinder 230hp
    Harley 2 cylinder 85hp
    Harley 2 cylinder 70hp
    Dirt bike 1 cylinder 45hp
    trimmer-1 1 cylinder 1hp
    chain saw-1 1 cylinder 3hp
    chain saw-2 1 cylinder 5hp
    trimmer-2 1 cylinder 1hp
    mover-1 1 cylinder 6hp
    mower-2 1 cylinder 5hp
    Tractor-1 3 cylinder 19hp
    Tractor-2 4 cylinder 22hp
    tiller 1 cylinder 8hp
    chipper 1 cylinder 5hp
    generator 1 cylinder 11hp
    splitter 1 cylinder 16hp

    Gee Robert, I've been trying to get rid of some of my extras to save on energy! So I'm down to this list! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I don't know the HP so I'm not going to guess.

    1. 6 cars = 36 cyl.
    2. Zamboni = 4 cyl.
    3. tractor = 4 cyl.
    4. GT = 2 cyl.
    5. 2 chain saws = 2 cyl.
    6. 2 mini bikes = 2 cyl.
    7. String trimmer = 1 cyl.
    8. Chipper = 1 cyl.
    9. Genset = 1 cyl.
    10. 2 push mowers = 2 cyl.
    11. Snow blower = 1 cyl.
    Total is only 56 cyl., [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] BOY, I better go find that UNIMOG I've been wanting! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Pickup 6 cylinder
    Car 6 cylinder
    Car 6 cylinder
    ATV 1 cylinder
    ATV 1 cylinder
    JD 3 cylinder
    NAA 4 cylinder
    JD 2 cylinder

    Powered yard equipment,
    mowers, tillers, chain saws, blowers,
    power washers, generator, etc.

    So I have 52, wasn't there a post going at one time that said you should have one cylinder for each year of your age...

    I will be 53 years old this summer, guess I had better go buy another new toy to keep the counts even.

    I too have been in the midst of an equipment reduction program having given away several mowers and a tiller, a generator and a number of other powered bits that occasionally might run [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]. These are only cylinders actually on my premise, I have a couple of antique outboards I have had since childhood, one that ran my pirogue and another from a small hydroplane I built back in the same era stored away in my hanger (aka ???? Antique Aircraft and Lawnmower Repair Inc.) back home and a few assorted small engines that are probably best used as boat anchors and a MG of similar value and a plethora of model aircraft engines.

    Cylinder Index (CI) or Spark Plug Index (SPI)? I thought it was the latter. But, here goes:

    2000 F-150, 8
    2003 Infiniti, 6
    1998 Honda, 4
    1948 Ford 8N, 4
    1956 Ford 850, 4
    MTD mower, 2
    2 lawn mowers, 2
    gas edger, 1
    weedeater, 1
    chainsaw, 1
    2000 Sylvan ski boat, 6
    Polaris jetskis (2), 6

    Total CI/SPI = 45
