In the August/September 2014 issue of Gas Engine Magazine, we brought you the story of the Coolspring Power Museum's efforts to acquire, move and restore a 1917 600 HP Snow gas compressing engine. The 20-year project ended with the dedication and successful operation of the Snow. In the video below, courtesy of Wayne Grenning, volunteers from Coolspring perform a start-up, run and shutdown of the 600 HP Snow. During the test, a few mechanical adjustments were made and on-line fuel valve settings were performed.
