Rare HP vt 0.21 - 4 Stroke PRICE DROP $65 SHIPPED


Alright, for as far back as I can remember this thing sat in a large showcase in my dad's toy room....he never actually used it, only display. I know next to nothing about old engines like this, but I will try to answer any questions I can. This thing is pretty sweet though and after some research I've learned it's actually a fairly rare 4-stroke. The shaft turns absolutely fine, no binds. Sorry for the bad pics, if you're really interested then I can e-mail you better ones with a better camera.

Ive seen that these go anywhere from $75 to $180, so I really have no idea what to ask. Im sure you guys are much more knowledgeable as to what a fair price is. Anyway, please feel free to PM me with any offer you may have. Paypal only please to the lower 48.

SETTING PRICE AT $65 SHIPPED FOR THIS LITTLE GEM

Thanks for looking,
Jordan

muffler


These are interesting engines with about the power of a .15. There is a muffler available from Mecoa for about $23. See quote below about the glow plug.

"The HP VT engines use a standard long glow plug. Don't use an R/C, 4 cycle, miracle or other plugs that have anything extending from the end. These plugs can hit and destroy the rotary valve. We won't cover this under warranty. Special note: Early VT .21's use a short plug. The early version can be identified by looking into the exhaust port. The early version has a brass valve rotating in a chrome sleeve so the valve look brass color. The later version .21 has a chrome valve in a brass sleeve."

Dear Jordan:
Your motor looks like it was at one time mounted in a plane. The mount holes are enlarged a bit. Does this motor have some compression? You mention it turns over freely but no menton of any compression. I have two HP .49's the larger version of this motor. I am interested, even without a muffler.
Regards, Charlie

[Dear Jordan:
I'll send you a US Postal Money Order for $65.00 for your .21 HP four stroke since you said it has good compression.

Send along your address.

Regards,
RockinDaddy
