    I'm seeing a lot of reference to "HT motors". I searched the meaning and came up with "Happy Time motor". But I can find out if this is a nickname for our fun little hobbie power plants or if it is the name of a particular motor out of the multitudes.

    And this leads me to another question... All of these China motors look alike (does that make me a racist?). But I hear that they are all but the same. So how do I tell which company makes a particular motor and how do I tell a China from a U.S.A.?

    As far as I know it's a nickname the same as "China Girl".

    Wasn't the "Happy Time Gas Motor and Artificial Heart Factory" one of the first companies to build theses little poppers? ;D

    I thought the nickname was the height of cynicism.

    all the motors that look alike is from china. on each website they will tell you the brand of motor and when you get the motor it might have a sticker and/or metal badge plate.
