Played as a reel. Great tune composed by Newfoundlander Ray Johnson, of Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers.

The tune title is in reference to the old single cylinder gas motors used back in the day on many dories. These motors contained 1, sometimes 2 flywheels, to keep the engine turning until the next firing sequence.
