Hit and Miss Engine Kits For Sale 

Hit and Miss engines were produced early on in gas engine production as a way of improving economy, in that they use very little fuel when no load is needed as they draw in fuel intermittently while idling, but automatically provide more power when the demand is greater.
Here we have casting sets provided by Liney Machine who are well known worldwide for their excellent supply of model hit and miss engine kits and castings.
