This is interesting.

Some kids with too much time on their hands, a beater, a camera, and a tow chain.

Enjoy.

Good question, just 2 1/2 years and I can't remember! I was probably trying to figure out what's wrong with it, if there's a load on this motor (welding) it gets hot and loses power. It's in the shed and it still sits on the "to do" list.

Maybe those kids saw your video and got the idea!

Would have been cool to watch stuff like this while I was learning to be a mechanic... Much better than the slow motion animated stuff they showed us narrated by the Department of Defense dude with the monotone voice.
