For Sale
Vintage Supertigre ST .51

I'll be honest. I've had this motor since 1988 and I've never even tried to run it.
Turns smooth. CR feels good.. Made before mufflers were cool..

Will need the screws for the rear cover.. Went MIA years ago.

$30 shipped in the US


Will consider Trade or Part trade+ cash for Spektrum DSMX Receivers or Cellpro 10S

Hi

I assume you purchased this engine used in 1988 so do you have any idea of how much run time was put on it or what fuel was used? I bet not but worth asking.

Also, could you see how many rings are on the piston please?

Thanks
John

I have no clue on the run time.. I got it from a friend who has since passed away.. It's secrets left with him..

I can check the number of rings when I get home..

Sorry to hear about your friend. Let me know on the rings. Researching which version of the 51 makes a good c/l engine at same time. Certain of these are suppose to be really nice for that.
