Default OK Cub .19

I have 2 identical OK Cub .19's except one is stamped .19 the other one reads as exactly as shown. There's a little .1 a 4 and a little 0. They are exactly the same size wise. Does this seem odd?

There was a Cub 14. I would make a guess that the 19 is a bored out 14. If so, and you have a 14, the cylinder wall should be thicker than your 19. All speculation, of course.

I found a close up picture of one. It's a .149

You don't see many .19 or .149 OK Cubs around, so you must have a rare find, jsesere.

I don't know why they referred to it as a .149 instead of a .15 or .14. Might have something to do with use in say competition free flight or else, beats me. Enya called their .099 a .09, like in the .09-III or .09-IV. Somewhat deceiving but knowing such puts things into proper perspective, I guess. [:-]

Actually back in the day the .149 was referred to as a "Cub .14". Its actual displacement is larger than the K&B .15...

When it came out it was a "powerful" engine for its size.

Here are mine... .19 on left, .14 on right.

That is interesting, George. Seems almost like they used the same crankcase. Well, you don't see those often. They almost resemble the smaller displacement Enyas, .049, .06, .08.

OK Cubs had some neat cylinder removal tools.

A Cub .14 tool fits a McCoy .09 diesel perfectly.
