French Traslation needed

Euro Buddies,

I need a translation. "Course and Alesage" to English or American. I think they are "Bore and Stroke" or "Stroke and Bore", but I don't know which is which. Unfortunately they are missing from the translation page in the excellent "French Model Motors".

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

"Google translate" isn't an actual human brain but just a program, you need to enter the querie clearly and not mix two languages in the same sentence. pmackenzie entered: course and alesage,instead of:couse et alesage which was enough to confuse the poor transistorized brain!

Google actually ask if the querie is "Course et alesage" and give the proper sequence as result.http://translate.google.com/#fr/en/C...0and%20Alesage
To clarify the action of machining a circular hole is called "Aleser" and the machine used to bore large diameter (boring mill) is called an "Aleseuse" in French,a reamer is an "Alesoir"..........It get even more funny when you get into German technical terms translation!

We don't have a problem, Google may have one.
Definitely:
Course = Stroke
Alésage = Bore
Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année 2013!

Taipan 61 Mk II

I was shown this engine at the field not long ago and told if I wanted it I could have it . One of the rings was so badly stuck it broke but now sports a set of Bowman rings which arrived a few days ago. He'd never made rings for one of these so the piston/liner had to be sent off to America. The main difference between this and the first version is the much larger, bulbous, transfer port and of course that it has a small II after the 61 on the transfer bulge. The muffler is the original venturi type. All I need to complete it is five 5-40 screws which seem to have gone missing over the years.

I'm sure those screws will be available in SA, but if not they're sure to be here. (In Sydney)

Let me know if you need a hand tracking them down.

Merry Christmas mate.

Sorry guy's... it's not at all vintage but I thought you would like to see it. Kind of a Christmas present to myself.

I bought myself a Jim Walker Firecracker engine. After cleaning all the grime away I found an engine in remarkably good condition. No plier marks and good compression. I haven't run it yet.

I've got an idea to build a replica AJ Fireball for radio control using this engine. I know they were originally controlled with a rubber bulb but I don't know what device was at the plane end to actuate the throttle from air pressure. I presume my engine is missing some actuating arm at the back end, which I will have to replicate to control with a servo.

Does anyone have a Firecracker with this missing arm they could photograph? I couldn't find any clear photos on the net.

You're going to have fun. I didn't know this setup existed, so I've just looked in Tim Dannels' encyclopedia. There's an arm that actuates a rotating exhaust baffle, with a linkage that also opens and closes a blanking cap over the carb. intake. The linkage isn't visible in Tim's photo. The photo shows the exhaust side of the engine and the linkage must go around the transfer side, but it sure looks like a fairly "delicate" arrangement!
PS: Your engine appears to have the carb. blanking cover...

The larger engine is of course a Cameron, 09 special marine if I'm not mistaken, and a variation of the engine that was built for Leroy Cox's Champion CL Car. Quite easy to find. The two smaller ones are not so easy to find and come up on ebay very rarely. These were produced espascially for the Hasbro Toy Co. for use in ready to run cars. It is not known how many were produced but when Hasbro decided not to go ahead with this car project, the engines were recalled and destroyed, so very few did survive. The flywheel is provided with fan blades for cooling. Date is 1961 and the engine has a .027cu.in capacity.
