    Just curious if any of you have used the little china girl engines to power other equipment.
    Like say, a cheapo generator built with one spinning an alternator and running an inverter.
    Or maybe a small and noisy compressor?

    Have you ever fitted one with a governor?

    Just curious what's been done with 'em.

    I know a Russian company that made these for bikes now (as far as I know still) make them to run pumps. Not a great use for them IMVHO due to the sound. Imagine that in your basement, LoL.

    I was just reading through the old sticky on the site called "Take a tip, leave a tip" and saw where a member (Earthman", I think) had posted pictures that came with his motor kit (maybe 10 years ago) of the China girl mounted on what looked like a walk behind brush cutter. That's pretty reasonable.
