Doesn't look like something you'd want to stick your fingers into. My dad had a Lister Engine in his fishing boat similar to the 'make-or-break', green starter engine in this video. Open compression, crank, close compression: As long as there was fuel, the engine would run non-stop over a limited rpm range but would never stumble or fail. It was truly a marvellous engine, yet so simple. No wires or electrics at all. Worked on compression alone. Smile
