  • How many internal combustion engines...

    ...are at your house?

    I was putting up the leaf blower yesterday and got to looking around the garage and storage shed at the house when I started thinking about how many gas engines there were. Damn, these things must be multiplying!

    3 chain saws
    3 blowers
    4 mowers
    1 weedeater
    1 gas pole-pruner
    1 tiller
    1 pressure washer
    2 motorcycles
    5 trikes
    1 boat
    3 cars

    That's 25!

    And everything but 1 chain saw and 1 blower runs. The tiller, 1 chain saw (not the non-running one), and 1 lawn mower could be called antiques I guess 'cuz they're all older than dirt...just like me!

    Now I needs to get me some RC cars like Willy & J.D. so's I can run that total up over 30!

    Any more gas engine pack-rats like me out there? I know somebody out there can top 50...60? More?

        2 trash pumps
        2 random brigs and stratton engines
        3 outboard jon boat motors

        1 john deere tractor
        1 kubota lawn tractor

        i know im missing somethings.....we got a lotta dipsticks to check .....grand total would be 51 if my math is correct...also got lots of good automotive engines in a shed but they dont have a home right now...

        also if the john deere tractor has two motors on one tractor how would i count that?????

            if you only count the ones that run i have 12. if you are also counting the ones that don't run, i can't begin to count. i think i have around 20 atc 70 engines that don't run and around 10 oldsmobile engines that dont run.

                I've got:
                2 Ride-on mowers, both working
                9 running, or almost running lawnmowers
                1 snowblower engine, almost running
                1 complete working snowblower
                5 wore out lawnmower engines stripped of all their good parts
                3 chainsaws, one runs
                7 weed eaters, 3 good ones, one running motor, and four not running
                2 Trikes, one running- my 200m, one needing a carb and rear wheels- my Atc90
                1 197? Gitane moped, was running, but have yet to figure out the problem

                That's 31, and I'm only in highschool.

                          3 trikes (1 no go)
                          2 blasters (1 goes but currently in-restore)
                          1 trx200sx
                          2 chainsaws Mega man size, and mini-saw
                          1 generator
                          1 weadwacker (no go)
                          1 riding lawn mower

                          1 ford taurus
                          1 dodge diesel

                          Frankly the fewer there are the less maintainence I have to do.


                          And 1 extremely large burn pile (but it only runs 1 time on very old gas or what the heck was this gas for and once a year ) but the combustion is WAY KOOL!

                              One of my chain saws is a 1982 Stihl - not older that ADW3 but way older than becker and the wheelie king.
