Here (on the left) we see the very first generation ENYA throttles from the late 1950's - top to bottom are, the first 09 Model 3001, the 15-IB, the 15D-I, the 19-III, the 35 Model 5001, the 29-III Model 5103 and the old 6-bolt 60. All throttles are the primitive type with the barrels free to rotate 360 deg. (no adjustable stop). Next photo shows a slightly later, polished case 09-II still with the first type carb. (the twin needle carb also depicted for the 45 & 35-II Models 6001)and lastly we see a 15-II fitted with the 2nd generation throttle, now equipped with an adjustable barrel stop - last 2 photo's from circa 1964

Need a big engine for a big stunter ? How about an ORWICK 64 ? Originally spark of course, but here in glow form. Why Henry persevered with those Mickey Mouse bolt-on engine mounts, I'll never know. Perhaps he thought they matched the Donald Duck exhaust stack !

RJL Industries makes a repro of the CUNNINGHAM that is the ORWICK with cast in motor mounts. It has points same as original.
Your Orwick appears to have once had points on it ??
The CUNNINGHAM comes with blue paint as per original motors.
