This 1/4 scale model International Harvester screen-cooled stationary Hit N’ Miss engine was built by Everett Kroll, CA. Mike Burns of M & E Products in Simpsonville, SC, provided a pre-machined casting kit for this scale model stationary engine. Everett Kroll constructed this model in the late 90s. Rather than use a traditional closed radiator, this type of cooling involves allowing the hot water to run down a mesh screen allowing evaporation to cool it before it is collected in the tank at the bottom and re-pumped through the engine.
