Well, one must admire how rapidly they fixed that crankcase mold issue, and still did stick with the reduced price

at least in the UK ! but he could be the "first time round" E Reg, known to his mates as Reg 1 E.

This typo always made me smile because it showed how hard they were concentrating on the plug, but dropped the ball on the glow

Some time ago I posted I was going to run the Pfeffer 2.5 prototypes I had and found that one was extremely tight. I took a look at it today and found two issues. One, the phenolic washers he used to cover the bearings were preloading the bearings. There is nothing in the design to space the front and rear bearings to prevent this. Removing one of these washers unloaded the bearings. And two, the liner suffered from distortion upon tightening to the crankcase and tightening the cooling muff. While this one looks very nice, it's so tight that I won't risk running it. It does have a domed piston and matching domed contra. We are having some unusually warm weather this week, so I might get the other one mounted to a plate and run.

I wanted REG-111 but that was not possible so was offered 005 up to 009 and since 007 seemed a bit ridiculous I went for OO6. Quite expensive these personal licence plates but nothing compared to what is beeing paid in Britain.

Over here personal plates cost 674.00 EUR (valid 10 years). Quite expensive, yes, the good thing beeing the amount benefits traffic safety research...it's a kind of charity.

I happened across this unique engine example on Ebay.
A instructional cutaway Jena 2.5cc East German DDR diesel engine made by Carl Zeise.
It looks like the contra piston is missing though.

Earl, that's an interesting view. Clearly shows the lack of bolts. I wonder why some used threads, and others used bolts to hold the cylinder on. Which is easier, or cheaper to make?
