Pretty cool.
The firing order got me confused...1-5-2
You mentioned running on the front 3 and pumping on the back 3 ?

:thumbsup:
What I find amazing is that they can run normal. Take a regular 6 cylinder motor and pull 1 or 2 plug wires off and it about dies. Yet they do this ...? And still run and sound almost normal. Guess it's all in how they fire..

Interesting machine, but kind of for entertainment purposes only. I could have recently bought a IR 185 CFM Diesel compressor with JD engine, low hours from a Utility for cheaper than your asking in CDN funds.
