HYPE is a German hobby company which used to market this engines( a cheaper alternative to OS). They now sell only electric planes,cars and boats!

There has to be a reason that the majority of entries in the world scale champs use Laser engines! Superb.

Thanks to Charlie Stone !
"From the TARMAC archives, here are 3 views of a 14.2 cc engine built here in WA in 1952 by Graham Ockleshaw for use in a tether hyroplane. Some details and a drawing were published in Model Engineer magazine by the designer, a Mr. George Lines (AKA Meridian). This engine has a lapped piston (no rings), rear rotary disc induction, and a twin ball race supported crankshaft. It also has several unusual features. A composite piston made of cast iron with a rivetted in light alloy little end yoke and the glow plug screws into a contra piston that can be moved to vary the compression ratio. That is controlled by the upper cooling fins which screw on to a threaded section at the top of the cylinder liner. Graham produced his own castings for the crankcase and even made the glow plug himself because the commercially available ones (like KLG) didn’t seem to be able to stand up to the stresses of this engine. The engine is very strong and since the method of launching the boat which was fitted with a `surface’ propeller was to throw it across the top of the water (not always perfectly), it has been submerged below the waves several times while screaming at full revs without any damage at all."

That looks like the 09, based on the pictures on here:
http://www.mh-aerotools.de/airfoils/cox_frameset.htm

Going by proportions alone it is hard to tell, but there is an extra groove around the base of the cylinder on the 09 in the picture and on yours.

Yes I did look up that site. Xenalook does have black housings for sale, they say that the O49 and the 051 are the same. So is the 09 different ? Thank you anyway.

051 has a bigger piston bore, all other parts are the same as the 049.
09 is a bigger motor , no common parts with the 049

"Micromeccanica Saturno Super-Tigre G 20 2.5 glow, square exhaust stack from year 1950. Original front washer rare in this new condition. Original needle with its cadmium plating. Free-Flight 6 mm white bakelite venturi insert. The engine has a clear matte finish. The glow plug is one of the first produced by Garofali, but I am not sure if it was sold with this engine. Piston with two rings ; one ball bearing at rear of shaft with plain front bearing. This engine is the first 2.5 cc and the first model of G 20 built by Garofali. See Reference Book of James Dunkin, page 113, # 91".
