PAW small diesels are fine. .03 or .049 even .06 sizes. I have an old Enya 1 cc or .06 diesel. A nice engine from the 1960's but not real powerful. Also MP Jet .040 PB Classic .037 cu. in. diesel. Photo of MP Jet with fuel tank removed and mounted on the test stand. Jack

The A.M.E.E. says that only one genuine one of these exist, the actual prototype which had fixed (not variable) compression - all others are repro's. Its a 1947 EDCO (Ira Hassad) Diesel, and scarce either way

So are you tempted to try soemthing a little oily?
I thought you had extreme difficulty finding diesel fuel in Mexico.

I can highly recommend all the PAW's but the little screw together ones, 55, 049, 060 are really easy to start and run and the throttles work very well too.

PAW equals One of the best you could buy today . You may also want to look at Sharma diesels from India. Eric clutton stocks these or you could order direct

If you want something with power, weight, and RPM range similar to a high performance glow try the MP Jet .061 from Icare:
http://www.icare-icarus.com/MP-Jet-0...sel_p_431.html

I prefer the PAW RC engines for most everything else, they all run well and the throttle works well too. They can turn small and large props, start fairly easily and are straightforward to adjust. They are well made and last forever if you don't destroy them with an electric starter on an over-compressed engine. The PAW 55 RC with a 7x3 prop is my favorite for small RC sport models. Before electric power became popular I converted 24" span Guillows and Sterling models to RC using this engine. The White Fokker D-7 in this picture uses the PAW .03 and flew for several years before I destroyed the model when it fell off my workbench!

CTAH ctastrophy.

In post 5317 I posted pics of a CHAH 1.5. I bench ran it yesterday. It was running like a demon, putting out some serious performance. I was tweaking the compression, trying to find the peak rpm when it suddenly spluttered to a stop. A massive crack had opened up in the crackcase just below the exhaust, running two thirds of the way around the cylinder. It was almost broken in half.
RIP CTAH.

Yes, PAW or MP-Jet or MVVS or Enya, or even a good vintage Webra or Taifun if you find one, are all worth the money.
One thing to keep in mind is that a new engine will need some running-in, say one or one-and-a-half hour during which it may not be the easiest to start. Don't give up, once run-in, they are all lovely engines.

No ailerons needed, just rudder and elevator (plus some wing dihedral). I built this from a Sterling kit and substituted sheet balsa for the fuselage and tail surfaces. I threw it together very quickly, almost anyone else could build a better one.

Fiery does the needle assembly on the MK 12 work?
I was given or rather managed one from my dads friend way back in late 80's. The engine hawas NIB with all papers, tools, piece of PVC pipe and nuts and bolts for mounting. The engine was wrapped in oil skin paper but had rust on the piston.
I found that the needle aseembly was loose and sucked in air from the mounting. I promptly swapped that with an assembly from Sharma diesel and after plenty of kero through the engine to wash off some rust fired it up. It did start and had plenty of power. The engine saw long service. It still runs but is down on compression. And along the way I have managed to loose the box and papers, but that wrench still survives
