The work that these Changfa single piston engines can do is unbelievable.

its amazing how much work even a single cylinder engine can accomplish

there used to be an old guy here in town that built a backhoe from scratch, using a pile of scrap iron
and whatever he could cob together.

he got made fun of a lot, until one day i remarked to a group of guys, "it might be a pos, but it can get more done in an hour that all of us can in a couple days with shovels"

that shut  them up, that is until he married an early 60's 1/2 ton pickup with the back half of a two ton dump truck with a 10ft box,  it had a pretty serious rake, with 20 inch duals on the back and 15" pickup tires on the front.  the rear axle he set just back of center on the bed, so that axle carried most all of the weight.   it looked like hell, but he hauled many many tons of dirt for local gardens out of a lot known as "paul's pit" down by the river.

yes he was "paul".

he would go to area auctions, and buy scrap, and buckets of rusty bolts, and then spend his winters out in the shop with a wire wheel on the grinder cleaning bolts.

i think he would have really done well with the guys in the video.

The amount of abuse those engines can take is amazing. It shows how durable they are.
