Wow, what a team here!
Thanks Gluehand, great pictures.
Bill, that looks great. I wouldn't have recognized it as the same diesel.

Boy would I ever love one of those exhaust diverters...cool as hell!

I also need to find someone to help me out with the nameplate on the housing. I can make the nameplate but I will need it lithoed or inked somehow.

I'm not painting my prop red!!

Thanks for the answer.
The first boxer was of 3,5cc in 1959 followed by the 6cc boxer of 1960. There were also glow engines of 7,5 and 8,5cc and a 3-cylinder radial boxer of 13,6cc dating 1964. I believe that exhaust rings were an option.

Bill,
Those "jet-plane" exhausts aren't all that rare. I think they were available for (or maybe even supplied with) all the Taifun 2.5cc engines (i.e. all the aero engines). Occasionally a Rasant II with these exhausts comes up on eBay. Maybe "speed demon" does a Ronald Valentine replica.

Yes it is an Alag.
It's hard to see what size, but it is either a 2.5 cc "X-3" or a 1.5 cc "X-4"...

Thanks Reginald, I had already thought because of the shape of the cooling head.

Heinz, on my screen, I can clearly see X-3 on the side of the crankcase, so it's 2.5 cc.
I think Alags are under-estimated. The X-4 and X-3 that I had, decades ago, were nice engines.

I think also it's X3. The X3 from post #4407 is very similar.
