No brains and happy with out them.
A company out here in Queensland named Southern Cross used to do similar experiments to rate the HP of the engines. One contract they had tendered for needed a 12HP engine and they had a 10HP so they set about increasing the rating by increasing the rpm. It did work so they kept increasing the rpm until it did explode. The flywheels were the first to let go and parts of them were found down the other end of the railway yard where they did the test.

That was painful to watch the poor engine trying to run - even when abused to death.

People like that should not be allowed near basic hand tools,  much less engines. Disgraceful!   :(

I didn't watch it.  I knew it was a snuff film.  No place in my mornings for that kind of violence.

Brings back bad memories of cash or clunkers in the Obama administration. Oh, how sad, ::) I canít watch it anymore. An engine that probably could of been rebuilt and could of possibly ran for another 50 years.

Gentles

Its not a matter of opinion, it's a fact... and against facts there are no arguments.

A few time ago lots of morons had destroy statues, ISIS destroyed monuments and churches. the ignorance or more the stupidity is the mother of all disgraces.

Just my few cents.
