How many cylinders at your house?

So I decided to try and figure out how many cylinders are here in my property? I'm thinking this can be a cool topic as I'm sure alot of us collect other things than moped. I guess I should try and make some rules and make this a game and whoever has the most wins a prize? Count them up. Weed wackers, junk mowers, old v8 engines sitting in the duckies. May take me a bit to figure this out as I have a fuck ton, haha.

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

21, kind of low for me, they come and go. This is kind of fun as there was a radio personality named Joe Soucheray in MN did a show called "garage logic" and he always did a cyl count bit.

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

So I'm thinking around 95 here? Mabye more but I think pretty close

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

At my house? 10 that I own.

Maybe 30 between the other vehicles and lawn equipment.

At the garage? At least 20 moped and scooter cylinders that I can think of and 2 dirtbike cylinders. There’s probably more that I’m forgetting.

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

I have 21 cylinders around here.

That’s just:

2 cars

2 motorcycles

3 mopeds

1 dirtbike

1 trimmer

1 chainsaw

1 lawn mower

1 sterling engine (if external combustion counts?)

After we find out who has the most cylinders, we should see who has the most displacement. After all, size matters.

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

17

1 V8

1 4cyl

5 moped singles (edited)

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

Backyard has 4, where my Honda is sitting.

Garage has 6 working

6 on the shelf in complete motors.

7-8 V1 stock top ends.

Puch, morini m1, m01, and at least 3 V1s that are destined to become ashtrays.

And a box of Chinese bicycle motor scraps, maybe 10. Not sure why I haven't thrown those useless fuckers away.

So, like 40ish?

Oh, and two Honda cvcc crate motors, so +8 more.

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

I like this thread, I think There's a good chance I may win this one. May be a while for me to get a full count though, hehe...stay tuned.. and no I do not own a junk yard for the record

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

So, what we need is someone with a salvage yard to chime in.

29 cylinders, consisting of three cars, a truck, three mopeds, three scooters, a motorcycle and lawn tractor. (edited)

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

I've slimmed way down, it's also funny that for all the small motor stuff, I use a push reel mower and electric weed whacker and clippers and saws etc.

4 + 4 + 6 in cars

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 in mopeds/scooters/motorcycles

1 + 1 in snowblowers

The tricky one is all the spare motors. fuck. there's at least a dozen.

30's somewhere?

but actually setup and ridable/drivable? 12

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

180 give or take and that's just here at the house

Just sold the last bag of cilinders i was never going to use.

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

So the 'garage logic' cylinder index. I grew up listening to joe soucheray and before he turned into a right wing asshole (back in the 90s) I really enjoyed the show on am radio out of minneapolis. He was pretty funny and kinda celebrated the 'greatest generation' Grandpa's workshop vibe although he was legitimately a fraud and didn't actually turn wrenches himself. When you got better ratings on the '00 for foaming up rubes coming fresh off a 3 hour rush rage boner, he pivoted to politics and the show last I heard it is just neocons whining.

The rules were always contested but for my own C.I. I've always only considered cylinders that are assembled into engines that are either running or have a good chance of running again. The 2 dozen plus random Moped cylinders laying around don't count, but the assembled Moped engines do count, even though they are missing carbs, etc.

I was just thinking about this the other day when I bought another v8, they are kinda cheating compared to mopeds but that's how the game is played.

I'll have to think about this and start counting, it will take awhile

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

Ok, just from memory this is where I think I am right now:

Lower barn

4- boat

4- tractor

2- 4 wheelers

Upper barn

3- rototillers

5- snowblowers

3- garden tractors

6- ’68 truck

13 – mopeds

3- dirtbikes

1- motorcycle

1- scooter

4- chainsaws

2- leaf blowers

7- random small engines (briggs, etc)

1- Push mower

2- weedeaters

6- snowmobiles

2- generators

Shop

11- complete parts/rebuilt moped engines

Driveway

4- outback

4- brat

8- f350

8- e350

6- highlander

Looks like I’m at 110 from memory, and those are all engines that either RUN or likely WILL RUN again. Not counting basket cases, loose ‘cylinders’ or projects that are totally in the weeds like my rusted up seized puch twingle that I try to pretend I don’t own.

Re: How many cylinders at your house?

Ope, and I just remembered the go kart and pw50 although those are technically my kids cylinders, I have to make sure they get oil changes and shit.

Be interested in seeing these things. I now work for a buddy at an outboard shop. I have this stand that I have seen the small version for toys. This is a full size for a real engine. (edited)
