NGH 60 Inline Twin 4 stroke Petrol Engine

I’ve been testing one of these new offerings from NGH on my test stand in anticipation of using it to displace the DLE 55 currently occupying the nose of my ESM P40. No issues with the DLE it continues to give sterling service but the sound of the 4 stroke twin holds an irresistible attraction!

In any case, being a new kid on the block, I though my experience and observations might be of assistance and/or interest to those of you considering this engine. At this stage it’s had about 2 hrs running on the test stand. I’m running 91 octane gasoline mixed with a good quality semi-synthetic air cooled 2 stroke oil mixed at 25:1. The prop is a 2 blade AeroStar 22x10.

General Appearance: The motor appears well made and the finish is comparable with any quality engine on the market.
