This,for the non-engine geeks,is a product of Northfield Ross of the USA designed by the very talented Lou Ross along with many other multi cylinder engines,none of them being built down to a price! And this is the first time I've even seen an inline Ross twin,never mind holding one !

O.K. no pressure then lol cool btw what engine do you have? I've got a Saito GK 50 to go in mine.

Making good progress there,I sold my kit a few weeks ago as I had decided I would be unlikely to build it,that said,I have "one or two" other kits under the bench wink including a Veron Hawker Tomtit .

So when I was a young lad looking through the model mags in WH Smiths (no,not those model mags !) I would be goggle eyed at the adds, the most exotic being from America as seen in HJN's 308 adds with kits from Sig,Sterling,Dave Platt and engines..............................

and now I have one of those much desired bits of exotica

two are bent and one broken.The thread on the twin needle merco carbs is 3 BA so to make a repair I just need to make a threaded section

It is indeed a G60 RV of 1966 vintage ! yes it was looking a bit sad when I got it,it looks like some one may have converted it to marine use at some stage by taking off most of the fins,I think it may also have a later piston fitted as it should have two rings not one ? anyway it only cost me a fiver, worth it for the carb alone !

Thread: Thunder Tiger 46 PRO engine crankcase needed
15/09/2019 21:31:12

Ah,I see,have brought items off German e-bay,and ,as you would expect winkvery good ! Not to sure if it would be cost effective compared to the price of a new TT engine,but given that the supply of engines in this and smaller sizes are some what limited,maybe a case of that or nothing !

15/09/2019 20:32:07

Matt,in what way is it un-serviceable ?

Denis, the only crankcases I have seen are for Meteor M 40 ??
