I wonder how well that worked. I would think the fuel would heat up causing the ether to evaporate faster. But maybe for short free flight runs, it would not be a problem.

yeah like that too, that Huscika looks like they did it more like the Antares engine did.

ser.nmbr. 2059 Came without the fueltank so I am making one, I do have the original drawing, when finished the tank will be "matted" of course.

I have what appears to be a original Mills 1.3cc MK-I engine. But someone appears to have made a different intake MK-II style venturi tube for it. the Intake has the needle assembly horizontally mounted instead of vertical. The engine appears to be new and not even run. Maybe mounted on a display stand or something. There is a 63 stamped on one mounting lug and a 127 stamped on the other lug.

That Thorning-Bensen is looking really nice. I would think that you would put a inside lip or shoulder on the fuel tank to help keep it from moving around some.

That Mk1 Mills should run okay like that Earl, but if you could pick up the proper carb. and tank would be nice.

Yeah I have thought about machining up a new intake tube and make it vertical and maybe machining up a fuel tank for it too. Sort of what the MP-Jet replicas have.
But I will keep a lookout for a original intake and fuel tank though.
Thanks

I don't think he makes those old style combat engines shown above anymore, it isn't listed on this website and it has the old exhaust pipe style on it.
The contra piston design Parra uses is a low profile setup so it tends to look like a glow engine with the glow plug tip broken off.







Test run using a MA 8x4 prop a DDD fuel.
