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 !

Matt,in what way is it un-serviceable ?

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

Well,she's a runner !smileyyes


will strip and clean up

So I thought I should bring this project over to this thread as it's merco based


std crankshaft modified by blanking off the inlet and slightly relieved to help with lubrication


drive pin from silver steel


bronze thrust washer


ready to run (once I've made some more screws laugh) it's cosmetically rough ,but if it runs I will tart it up a bit

It will be worth fixing,they run very well, back in the day it powered a Radio Queen over the channel and that's not a small plane smile o !

Well not quite done with Mercos yet, just got a 50 and this, a late 61


This is the last of the line,larger 15 mm crankshaft with bigger gas passage,ABC liner with more port area and new style carb

Rather than use a reed(or clack valve for the ancient modeler ) have gone for a rear drum,I will try a reed later when I have worked out how to make one !

Thanks again for the suggestions. Sadly, the Junior 60 was literally built around this engine, with a custom exhaust, Cowell and a home made fuel tank. This means that it would be very difficult to install another engine in it's place so If we want to see this model fly we will need this Hunter to be in working order! It's a shame the shaft is damaged, the rest of the engine is in really good condition.

Thanks all.

The crankshaft is broken,the threaded portion should be much longer,it my be possible to heat treat the end of the shaft to be able to drill and tap it for a stud,hope that helps.dont know

A reduced size version of this model was a free plan in the June 1981 RCM&E as the Hairy Gnome

Thread: What have I got here ?????

The Owat is a clone of the French Micron,not as well made but a good usable engine in it's time,word of warning do not use modern diesel fuel,use a mix of 75% ether 25 % oil or another recommended mix for the Olwat of 70% ether ,10%oil,20% petrol ,14 "x 8/9" prop for 4,500 rpm

This is a very nice plane,a club mate has flown one for years,if you look on outerzone you will find the plan and the original magazine build article before it was kitted by GeeBee

After the success with the meteor I thought I would try something similar with a Merco but this time with reed induction !


going to 'cheat' and use the original crank but may have to make a piston (broke)wink
