  1. Thank you brokenglish John
  2. Thank you Robin. I hadn't noticed the fins on the Glow motor. I did think the diesel head was a replacement as it is much cleaner than the rest of the motor. Not sure if the owner was also a model engineer like the seller and made up some bits himself. John
  3. On Friday I ordered some 2900mah 4s lipos which arrived yesterday. I didn't think anything of it until I went to charge the for flying in the next few days, when I found 2 were 4s and one was 3s. All were 2900mah. I phoned the shop this afternoon and it was all sorted very quickly including fitting an XT60 plug onto to the replacement battery. First class service from Adam and Sussex Model Centre. John
  4. I have recently bought a couple of older motors form Ebay. The seller is selling a deceased modellers equipment and has a few motors he cannot ID. He is not an aeromodeller but is into engineering and live steam railways so need a bit of help. Any thoughts on the attached photos please. John
  5. I don't tthink there is a legal responsibility as we are all there voluntarily under a club umbrella. We have a signing in book everyone,flying or not has to sign, as a safety check. We have a first aid kit that is checkd regularly. We don't have first aiders as such but we have had a first aid refresher by the St. John's Ambulance at our club nights for the last three years, which have been well attended, and one member actually saved the life of another member when he had an heart attack and remembered what to do (away from the field). So we have nothing formal but it works. We also have a defirilator. John
  6. I haven't checked today, but were there any late penalties? The fantasygp website said I had 186 points yesterday but in our chart I only have 156. John
  7. Thanks Robin. That was an interesting read. So JD8 and jeff2wings were both correct in a way. John
  8. Please accept my apologies Jeff2 wings. I've googled it and it does exist. His motor has what looks like a homemade fuel inlet and air intake tube but other than that kit looks the same. John
  9. Sorry for delay in replying but been at a funeral all afternoon and justngot bacK. Thanks for the suggestions. Not heard of the Dyno. Heard of Oliver, not Battle axe. No offence Jeff2 wings but are you serious? very rare. The chap selling these motors is selling for someone else and knows little of aeromodelling as he is into model engineering - steam locos.
  10. Thanks for the suggestions. I've got to go out for a few hours so won't be able to reply for a while. John
  11. Can anyone ID this engine. Not for me this time but will be going on Ebay shortly. John × Uploaded Images
  12. I stand corrected. Your right, I hadn't seen those markings. It is a mrk 2 mongrel. Not the most obvious place to look for a makers mark. John
  13. Brokenenglish. There is nothing on the crankcase except "made in england" on the rear of the crankcase and the serial number on the left side below the exhuast. There are two examples on EBay and neither has anything on the crankcase. One has the serial number on the right side while the other has it on the left side as mine does. This is why I quried if anyone knew the engine as there was no maker ID. John
  14. I know Simon. I have won three small diesels in the last two months. John
  15. It is just typical, just like buses. I asked for info on my unmarked engine which was very quickly ID'd. Just looked on Ebay for spares as suggested and there are two for sale. I should have looked earlier. John
  16. Thanks for all the replies. The smaller prop I'm after is for the small Merlin 0.75 cc. I'll do a search on the web for some spares. I like diesels. I got my first DC Spitfire about 1961/2 and still have it. John
  17. I've got a sore finger from trying to start the .75 DC Merlin when it hydauliced and my finger slid along the prop leaving a minute cut. I will bear in mind your advice and put a glove on. Are there modellers/traders who trade spares for older engines or is it just keep looking on Ebay? I was looking on the website of a well known model shop and the smaller size props 7 - 9 inch seem to be a rarity these days. Plenty of 12 - 24 inch props in IC and electric. I haven't got any smaller ones in my box of props at the moment but I used to have a lot. It would appear the demand is for bigger petrol engine sized props or electric.
  18. Thanks.I may try to run it up. I will be keeping it anyway mongrel or not. John
  19. Broken English. As Brian said above mine has a different needle valve assembly and no tank. His picture and yours differ in the prop driver. The two pictures show a dish shaped driver, yours with a round extension into the prop. Mine has a square section on the crankshaft, two washers with square cutouts and the a prop driver that looks like a very thick washer with the rear edge rounded off. This is clear in my first photo so I'm not sure what mark/ year it is. Thanks for the added info. John
  20. Just realised that you meant the needle valve not the venturi. John
  21. Thanks Brian for the quick reply. I thought it was oldish. I have no idea where I got it from, but I remember winninig a box of engines at a club auction years ago. Would you know what Enya had that type of screw in carb/venturi. Very similar to the Mills. I also found today an ED Baby 0.46 cc from the same era with badly butchered mounting lugs and an ED 1.46. I used to take any motor club member were getting rid of but not an official collector, more a hoarder so I have some fairly old engines. John
  22. Can anyone ID this diesel engine for me. There is no makers name just "Made in England" on the rear of the crankcase and the number J215/8C on the top of the crankcase below the exhaust as in the photo. This one has been sealed around the neeedle valve assembly with some sort of epoxy resin. Had it for some years and not tried to run it, I have been playing with a few small diesels for a Mini Robot and found this in my collection of diesel engines in a box. Thanks for any help.
