Hey John that does make sense to me now that you enlightened me. I didn't know the hit and miss engines had cast iron pistons but that sounds logical. John do you ever come across the old engines in your travels. Seems to me that these are somewhat a collectors item around here. I remember My Dad pumping some old oil wells around here with them. If I recall They were quite large bad had very little horse power
