Looks a bit unsafe running the car inside the shop regarding carbon monoxide poisoning..?

That might be a real piece of work hand cranking the '13 with that vertical lawn mower in front!

The OSHA inspector would probably have a stroke when he visited that shop.

Now that Ken mentions cranking it, I don't see a crank. I wonder if it has one of those auxiliary "commencer" gizmos to start it, the one that uses a cable with a pull handle inside the car.

Real men would spin the propeller to start and slip the belt on and off when needed!

Pull the lower belt to start the engine?

The upper pulley is so high up in the ceiling so there isn't any risk to jam the fingers in it when pulling in that direction.

And a good fitting hose may take care of the exhaust and keep it outside..

Maybe there's a hole in that lower pulley for a handle to crank then yank it out when she starts? Can someone can find an advert for this thing with pics that could clear up a few questions ?

There's a posting on the Forum about a similar setup. Titled Model T PTO. dated Oct 26th. 2014.

Wonder if it's just a museum setup and never actually ran that way??

Roger, they didn't invent carbon monoxide poisoning yet
