OkiThumper,

I would defer to "the Kiwi's" comments regarding the external design of the Series 21 engines.

I know I bought two of them based on their looks. They were very heavy compared to other engines of similar displacements.

Regarding the red anodized glow head on the .049-I thought is was really cool looking too!.


The Kiwi,

Great information sir!

I do remember that they were much easier to start with an electric starter, than by hand. There was not much of anything in the way of compression, on the ones I owned, and they lacked a properly tapered collect or keyway at the front of the crankshaft where the propeller backing plate was. No amount of tightening could keep the propeller from coming loose (again, I have a sample of two to work with).
