Earlwb, I noticed in your first picture of the three engines, the one in the middle is a beam mount. What brand engine is it and what did it come out of? It looks like my ryobi's except for the crankcase.
That was actually made by a small company here in the USA quite a few years ago. I am trying to remember the name of it. But it eludes me at this time. I'll remember eventually. I think the engine was from a large professional size weed trimmer at the time and it was converted for RC use. I keep it because it does have the beam mounting tabs on it. But with the flywheel and magneto it is heavier and it doesn't develop as much power as newer design engines do.
