KBV ducted fan engine

Had this tucked away and will not get to it as I'm getting rid of all glow fan stuff.

This is a KBV fan engine. These are K&B engines designed for BVM fans. Supposedly nice engines. This one turns over fine but the bearings are a little rough. It has been stored with after run and in a temp controlled shop but I don't know if the moisture has gotten to the bearings. It may smooth out with a little work.

Asking $75 shipped.

These BVM K&Bs were some of the nicest engines K&B put out, IMO.
That was the time OS had the 91 DF and this was made to kick its butt. I friend of mine had one but he never did run it. He had a few OS91 and I think he was afraid to crash and ruin the K&B.
It is really made to compliment BVMs fan unit which was nice as well.
