Default Sportwerks .18

I am looking for a replacement for my DTX .18.

Found a new SWK7002 .18SB but cant confirm if it is a ABC or ABN engine. I do not ant a ABN as my DTX only lasted 1 gal of fuel before it lost compression.

Anyone have the spec's?

Thanks in advance..

Larry

I saw the same pictures as you did, but could not identify if it was chrome or nickle plated.

I have searched the net for specs on this motor but could not find anything in the user manuals or anyplace else. I have emailed the sellers of this engine and they dont even know the answer.

Not that I dont believe you but how did you tell it was nickle?

WOW, you learn something new everyday.

Thanks for the link showing how to tell the difference.

After looking at the Picture of the sleeve I can see that it is Nickle.

Glad I didn't buy it.....

I ordered a ABC .15 to replace the .18.

Thanks for all your help..
