Old Enya Engines

Hi All
Is there a list of all (or most) of the older Enya's with the specs, eg. dimensions, ringed, non ringed etc.
Thanks Barry

Enya goes back a lot more than 40 years:
"The very first model engine produced by Enya was the 63 which Saburo Enya used at a flying meet in 1949. In October 1949, two types, No.1 and 2 were marketed under the name Enya "Typhoon" 63. Type No.1 was a plain bearing and shaft rotary valve engine, while Type No.2 was a twin ball-race and disc rotary valve model. Only Type 1 reached production levels. The 63 was replaced by 60 in 1956.

In February 1950, the quantity production of model engines began with the very first Enya 19 - a sandcast engine with a 3-bolt front housing, produced in small numbers until the introduction of the Enya 19 Model 4002, which featured an oval exhaust and head fins higher at the front. (the corresponding Red Head sandcast 29 appeared in April 1952-with 4 bolt housing). Slotted screws used on these, "Made in Japan" cast into L.H. mounting lug adge - 4 bolt front-housing and head.. This die-cast 4002 started production circa 1953, followed by the Enya 19 Model 4003 in about 1955, which featured a long, "slopey" intake and thin-walled rectangular exhaust, "flat" on top head fins."

Mate, see if you can track down a bloke on here with the "nic" of Downunder, I'm pretty sure that he's got it actually mapped out and I'm also pretty sure that he's posted it here.

BTW I'm a huge Enya fan myself

Cheers

All I said was Enya made dozens of engines in the last 40 years. That's a fact. The fact that Enya is more than 40 years old does not void my statement.

Same for OS, Fox, K&B and many other companies. Doesn't matter what engines they made or when just the fact that they made dozens in the last forty years.

The OP got a couple of replies over on RCU but there's no harm in repeating them here for others who may not use RCU and are interested. These lists are by no means complete though but cover most engines we might run across.

Thanks, Downunder. Much appreciated.

As I'm the guy who wrote that stuff on the Supercool Racing Propellers website, I would be happy to email to anyone my latest (and LAST! ) Enya epic entitled the Enya Model Engine Compendium. Contact me direct at - bobshirl@bigpond.com (there is no charge). I see no point in hiding this information (which has probably consumed at least 300 hours of my time) away from the few guys who are interested, and lets face it - in 25 years time, nobody will even know of Enya engines. BOB ALLAN.

Seeing I have a copy of Bob's epic I can guarantee it's worth your while having it as a reference. A lot of effort has gone into this by Bob and a couple of his cronies digging up facts from all over the place.

I'm glad Bob is sharing his list, it is truly marvelous work. Work like this will insure that people will know there were Enyas in 25 years! If Bob had not did ths work now, it would be darn near impossible to do in 25 years.

Thats something we collectors do; record history while it can still be done.

Just got Bob's compendium...amazing work. Thanks for mentioning it, guys, and thanks especially to Bob for doing it. It's easy to take these little pieces of machinery for granted. The development history gives an idea of what really went into it.
