Ah, but one that fit's a bike is usefull :twisted:

Geof,
When I called in to see you I mentioned a spark ignition model engine that was my Dad's.
I could not remember the make at the time but it is a Nordec.

The manufacturer even made a supercharger kit to fit an Austin A35 car, wish I could have found one when I was running an A30 with the A35 engine in it.

Mind you I only got 2000 miles out of a new set of crossplys on the A30 with some lively driving.

Hi Dennis,

I googled Nordec and found this page:

http://www.onthewire.co.uk/nordec3.htm

If you read down you see you have a Nordec Special Series II. Quite a rare engine it seems, I'd love to hear it running.

My very first car was an A35, I think I paid £35 for it. It was painted Orange and was referred to as the "Clockwork Creep" (Clockwork Orange was then a recent film).

Like your Quickly, make sure you wear full armoured leathers when riding that beast :lol:

Cheers Geoff

That's cool, much cooler than the OS40FP I had in an aerosport 40.

The most evil engine I ever owned, the legendary Cox TD 010

30,000+ rpm on a 2in prop running 40% Nitro fuel, makes your ears bleed :D

Want to see some really amazing model engines check out this guys site, I just came across it when I went searching for some of the Radial variants people have built using Cox TD cylinders now that is really evil finger chopping malevalence.
quite amazing what people have made over the years.

I remember those Cox engines Zun. I had an 049 glow engine, wish I could remember what make it was. I also had an Enya 15 and a Merco 35, both with throttle controls. The Enya was bought secondhand and never ran that well. The Merco was crude but actually ran really well. I think the Enya is still in the loft at my parent's house fitted into a control liner.
