Help!
Help me out please, not sure where to go with this

hi all, this may be in the wrong thread but i have no idea what i'm looking for...

The pictures below i found in an Rc Plane in the roof of my house. i believe it belonged to my father many many years ago. Do you know what this is and where i can find more info on it.

the rc store had no idea what it was but they said it is probably rare so i should sell it but that is the stupidest thing i have ever heard lol "i dont know what it is but you should sell it"

anyone know what these are for/what model they are?

Wrong forum for sure.

The larger of the two engines is a PAW control line engine and not rare as they are still made. The smaller one looks to be a DC Albion. Not super rare but if it is in good nick a collector might pay a bit for it.

The one on the right, as epilot said, is a PAW - but it's a diesel engine!

You'll have much better luck posting those pictures over in the Engines forum. It serves gas, glow and diesel, as well. Go here:

Those look fun, and i generally don't like fuel powered engines, but I've always been interested in micro engines. Do they run?

i dont know much about those engins but if you guys pm me we can work on getting HD macro pictures and info on the motors. i have sold the one with the propellor in it so the other one with that spring is for sale.

Apparently a small amount of heat should help loosen up a gasket or something like that but i dont know much about these motors.

PM me for more pictures and condition, price, ect
