I would have to vote for 2 cycle Detroit Diesel or 2 cylinder jOHN DEERE tractor. They are both music to my ears. Maybe that is why my hearing isn't as good as it used to be.

Leo ... off topic?? Moi??? Jay just needed a little help jazzing up his discussion (he's so boring you know ... wink ) I'd better be careful -- he'll make me disappear ... or make snakes appear in my car ...

Don -- Really??? You need to ask that or are you just looking for a reaction to your adjective?? It's valid, by the way. BUT ... underpowered by who's standard?? Power is sufficient for the intended purpose, I'd say. I'd rather have 1600 cc's behind me than 350 cubic inches in front.

JM -- Thanks for sticking with me on the Detroits. Great initials, by the way -- you are obviously above average in intelligence and ruggedly handsome.

How about a one cylinder two stroke Diesel that can run forward or backwards, or half a turn in both directions? The Lanz Bulldog! It can also be started with a 12 gauge blank shotgun shell.

That's downright amazing!

OOPS! Wrong tractor!

The Field Marshal is the one with the shotgun shell starter!

Y’all are way off track.
The BEST sounding engine is the one that was cranking the double ice cream churns at the 2019 Stovebolt Homecoming in VA.
Why? Because it MAKES ICE CREAM!
