New Engine

[QUOTE=Kmot;22699603]They're talking about it on the Mamod forum but it has not been mentioned here yet:]

As I mentioned there, I have one, very quick delivery, and runs well.

It may need a small bit of fettling like any new engine.

Similar to other oscillators it loves steam and will need at least
a 3" boiler to keep it happy.

A V twin, double acting, capacity of 4.25cc. Has forward & reverse
and throttling action. Quite hefty at 380 grams with all that brass.

I would guess that it will run a 3 blade 65mm diam prop.

quote from the other forum "

a design by Peter Arnot and was described in a series called
Starting in Steam and published in the magazine 'Model Boats' in 1988"
