It's Friday at the Argos wood gas meeting. On display and running were pickup trucks, mowers, tractor, garden tractors, chunkers and a generator. And let's not forget charcoal making. Saturday should have a larger showing.
Conversion of a 6.5hp single cylinder Honda clone engine to producer-gas. Timing was advanced and a carburetor was fabricated. These are affordable engines popular with go-cart racers thus there is a pool of performance techniques easily available to tap.
This is the second year that the "Woodgas Meet and Greet" was held in Argos Indiana. With the water tower (Photo 5) acting as a beacon attracting people from across the country to share their knowledge, experience and question with each other. It's easy to say that it was a total success and the Argos Fairgrounds was the perfect setting.
