Aunt tillie doesn't need to be driving a new techno car or any car if
she has issues rationalizing what the causes of sounds are.

WWII was a long way back from the 50s and 60s, which were the decades I
mentioned, and in THOSE decades, the redline was higher, as was the
"normal" operating window. Far higher than the 3600 that some retarded

worked on these babies - I know how fast they ran. NOT MANY engines
of the 50s would even rev to 5000 without losing parts. Many stock
engines of the 60s and 70s could not rev over 5000 rpm Most redlined
WELL UNDER 5000.
Even the mighty Chevy 396, in stock form in 1966 was not happy much
over 4200 rpm. With aftermarket parts, or the L34 factory hotrod
version, they would hang together for a while at 5000 RPM.
A slant six 225 Dodge would not hit 5000 RPM stock - the little 170
could wind to 5500 with its 1 inch shorter stroke.

What I said was the ratio was kept low so as to *not* require such a
drive. Too high a ratio and the generator would self-destruct.
A typical loser tactic, claim that I said something ridiculous and then
argue that I'm clearly wrong. But the text is there for you to read
(and re-read and re-read until you have some comprehension).
