Man, you would wear out the starter rope before you got them all running! :lol:

With my luck, the first engine would run out of gas before I could get the last one started.

If this is the same one, I've seen it in action before. It sure sounds sweet running! Denny, he starts one engine, uses it to start the next one and so on until all are running. It takes a while to get them all going. It's a pretty neat piece, for sure!

Actually - his wife was right there with him. She was telling me that they had entered it to be place in the Guiness Book of World Records but since it was a one-of-a-kind item there was nothing to compete against and they could not issue a world's record. I suggested that he build a second one so he could qualify. He told me there would be no more built by him. He said this one was hard enough to engineer.
It does sound great running but unfortunately I did not get any video of him running it. With all those single cylinder engines firing it sounds more like a blown dragster than a bunch of Briggs engines.
