I just glanced in 'The Allis Chalmers Story' by C.H. Wendell, and under the Internal Cumbustion Engines section there is nothing mentined about Hit and Miss. Allis's strength was on the other side of the spectrum. They manufactured some of the biggest engines known to man, including 43200 HP ship engines. WOW! Jim

If I recal one had a 12 x 12 stroke and bore. That I'm sure is in feet, not inches. I wish I had one of them. Mt Plesant Iowa has a steam powered engine with I think has a 14 or 23 ft flywheel, just can't remember.

A-C made lots of em. Some were gigantic, used in industry to run lineshafts and generators in factories. Check out C.H. Wendell's book, The Allis Chalmers story, several pictures in there, and I think Rollag show has the Pabst Brewery engine in their operating museum. I have seen videos of it operating on RFDTV's power of the past, or classic tractor fever, or some such similar show.
