Stuart.
At Japanese engine gatherings (I've watched quite a few on youtube) its usually the same, no wheels, and this is independent of the surface they are on. So I don't think your hypothesis is correct.

Nice video thanks for sharing, I do like the Japanese horizontal diesels, would dearly like one of those Yanmar K1 or K2, the Sato semi-diesels are quite sweet as well.

An intriguing way of displaying engines. We could learn a lot from their lack of clutter and bare knees behind the engines resulting in a cleaner display. Generally they do not present the engines in 'better than new' condition, the exhibitors are not on hand to discuss their engines, there is no driven equipment and, with a couple of exceptions, no information boards. So, is their way of presenting engines better than ours?

Also no ropes or whatever - basically looks more like a club crank-up than a public rally and I enjoy those.

I really must find and join a local club to see a crank-up, so far all my viewing has been from the other side of the ropes.

The no ropes thing seems also to be fairly common in the many german engine and tractor videos I have watched. Friendly back (or front) garden crank ups are good fun, much more a social do than a proper rally.
Although I did a very small, seven engines plus a steam plant from a small launch, last weekend where space was at a premium, we had a fence, but it was only about 2 feet in front of my engine so the crowds were very close, somehow seemed better, or more friendly than the standard of at least 6 feet, usually a bit more.

Don't need a club to show engines, only insurance.

Can always come up here in October, no ropes at my Crank up unless someone gets stuck.

I will be getting insurance in the new year.

Just checked the map and you're just under 3 hours away, but thanks for the offer.
