We should call you "Smart" Old Prairie Red Neck.

But as others have already stated. Twins smoother, singles better power/weight ratio. Which in my opinion is not an issue for your particular project.

Hope this might help.

Re: Single cylinder engine VS dual cylinder engine

Thanks guys for all the inputs and explanations how twin cylinder engine works Vs single cylinder engines. I'm going to opt for twin cylinder engine for this particular project plus keeping both glow and gas options open. Now let's see what I can find....hmmmm
