Aren't those the old "hit and miss" motors that made that "putt, putt, putt" sound?

I think they used them for water pumps and oil rigs and conveyors on farms back in the 50's. I remember something about adding oil all the time or oiling them somehow.

I think there's still an old tractor around here with wooden or steel wheels with one of those.

I can't forget that odd noise they made.
