A tough little diesel for staters...?

Though this may not be the choice engine for every one, some one, at one time, had the love and desire to design and make it! I think this speaks "volumes" for modelers all around the world. We love modeling and what we do!

Here are the last pictures. Notice that the crank is not one solid piece, but made up of several "plates" or layers for the counter balance...certainly a different way to make this.
The piston and cylinder are really an excellent fit, most likely hand lapped.
This cylinder is very heavy walled, lots of extra metal, let's just say very "tough". The exhaust and transfer ports are conservative, but well machined.

I think this particular engine would work well for a "starter diesel" that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

The engine are an AURORA - KUMAR - K-250 of India for U/Control
You see the engine in R/C in http://www.rojobcn.com/technic/avion/aurorak2501.htm

I don't know if the readers of this thread ever look at the engines for sale thread because diesels are seldom listed there. I just put up my two vintage engines, a D.C. Wildcat and an E.D. Mark II.

My collecting is just getting away from me, and I need to get real about how much stuff I've got.

vintage diesels

Thanks Jim.
Maybe you could provide a little history and a few details to go with these engines.
More pictures are always welcome.
I'll guess Bill is thinking real hard on these gems.
Now what would you really rather have, an OK twin 60's ignition or these.

Redbaronbpe, thanks for the ID on the Kumar K-250. Any idea of the power output, prop, rpm. What year was it made?

Twin_Stack, thanks for the link. That person must have hundreds of diesels.

Anyone have more pictures of their model with a diesel in it?

These. Much more useful.

Would love that Wildcat to put into an Eros ... sigh ...

Applehoney, I would have to agree with you, a lot more usable.
On the other hand, if you collect the older ignition motors, that twin sure is nice to look at.
But for the price of the OK, you could get the diesel and have money left over to buy a few new engines!

A time machine, or 50 years ago, still flying!

My good friend Chad sent me the latest on flying at his Dad’s (Ray) farm. Yes, there is a better field there now for RC. Ray still comes out to mostly watch, but often offers great suggestions, as would your mentor or coach. Ray’s diesels, are of course, much larger these days!

As Chad says, “The other day my neighbor popped by and said he had something I might want to see. He said he has some 8mm films his wife took in the early 60`s that have my dad, mom, grand parents and great grandparents on them.

But one of the best parts is my dad and another neighbor of ours flying U-control in the winter of 63. First you see my dads yellow 54 inch span Sterling J-3 Cub, powered by a glow Forster 29.
Then Lee`s red Veco "The Brave", powered by a OS Max 35.
And lastly my dad starts while Lee holds a Jim Walker "Firebaby".
What makes it cool is that dad still has the Cub and Forster 29, and I have the Jim Walker "U-Reely" that is seen on the ground beside Lee`s Brave. It sits proudly above my modeling bench.”

Yes, time machines do exist............enjoy.
